She has a very high rump and skinny neck which may interfere with dressage , but overall cute horse .

Well she's High rumped I think cause of where she's not even two yet so she has quite a bit of growing to do. She's only 15H now and she's suppose to be 16H-ish

Thanks by the way :)

She does have a high butt, have you seen photos of either or both parents to see how level they are? She also looks a bit camped out in the front which may cause extra stress in jumping.

did not expect that I would like this mare for what you want before looking at her pictures as draft/qh is not an ideal cross...but I do. Butt high- who cares. She's 2 and a draft cross, won't mature for four years or more. Longish back is more of a concern as you can see she's got a potential sway issue. With proper work this can be managed. I love her hocks. Can't say she's camped out because she's not square in any photo. Her angles are great. Pasterns are a touch long which could be a soundness problem - maybe- who knows. That deep hip is amazing...rarely do draft crosses have a hip like that, she got the Qh in that department, thank the lord. She is well balanced, also unusual for a draft cross, they are usually HUGE in teh shoulder and weak in the hip. Not this mare. She's very even. I like her shoulder angle- skinny neck? Don't think so. Love her neck. It will only get stronger as she grows, it might actually get too large and cresty for the vogue, but I like it. I like the tie in, high enough to let her reach through the front. Throatlatch is a bit thick but not awful. My biggest concerns with this mare are the front pasterns and longish back. Overall as I already said, I like her alot!

I completely agree with everything Chopsticks said.

My guy is coming three in May and is a Percheron/paint cross. He hasn't been level for more than a month or two that I've had him, but it's just him growing. That's why, when someone asks for a critique on a young horse, I NEVER mention that they're butt high. It's usually rather obvious and they'll usually grow out of it, even if they're REALLY butt high.

Do not tell me I can't...because I will show you that I can.

I am glad chopsticks came here. I agree with her, but she said it so very well. This horse seems to have taken after the QH more than the perchy. I love her markings as well. She will be a very good choice for dressage (maybe not high level) and is eye catching to boot.
