Potential Pony Hunter?

Sugarbrooks Done Just Right - Welsh Pony - Hunter Horse for Sale

I'm looking for pony prospects for either Medium or Large Pony Hunters to show this year. I'm not very good at critiquing though! Help me out? Thanks!

I would keep looking. First, this pony is 3 and just backed, and won't be ready to show until next year.

Second, the photo of her moving shows her with not a lot of reach forward from the shoulder and too upright of a head and neck carriage for a hunter, usually those qualities do not improve under the weight of a rider.

Her confo photo flatters her head and neck, but shows a long back and a weak, underdeveloped hind end. She may outgrow that, but I think the pronounced sickle hocks are here to stay.
