Color is as color does, for eventing I would look at the task at hand over color. I have color lust for a palomino, so I understand the appeal. That said if you are serious about eventing and serious about a cremello I would keep looking. I don't know that I would waste the gas looking at this one. I don't know much about conformation I just don't like much about this mare.
I hate to disagree, but I don't see "over at the knee", rather I see a bit back at the knee. Just a tad.

Guess what, as the old saying goes, you can't ride color! This horse is in no physical or confirmational condition to be evented.

Tiny disagree all you want, I am still learning this whole thing so you are probably right. Something seems wonky in the legs, they don't look like a solid enough base to jump off of and hold up. I just was trying to be more correct than saying "wonky".

I only mention it because a horse should have a bit of a convex curve to the front of the leg (something that is often mistakenly called "over at the knee"), not a concave or perfectly flat. It has to do with the shape of the fore arm of the horse (above the knee) , which has some curve to it. Of course, too much curve, convex or concave, is not good.

Anyway, it's all subjective, as you say.

Well, all I am going to say is that you're going to have a lot of work ahead of you in conditioning this horse for "eventing". . . I'm sure he has a great personality

The whole colour allure wears off real fast when you're stuck with a horse that doesn't suit your needs or won't stay sound.

I know everyone buys horses for different reasons, and it's absolutely your money to spend how you want... But color isn't typically the best reason to purchase a horse, especially if you're wanting to use it for something, and not just a pasture ornament.

You would have to put a lot of time and work into this horse to get it in shape for eventing, assuming that picture is current.

No offence, but buying for colour is the worst thing you can possibly do.
The first thing I thought, when I saw her was "Ahhhhhhhh... Disaster!"
She doesn't look like an eventer at all to me. Her legs simply wouldn't hold up.
