LONG back, which gives the illusion of very short legs. Nice short cannons, pasterns are a bit too straight. Nice open shoulder and her neck ties in well at the withers and chest. Slightly downhill. It looks like her right rear hoof might be clubbed fairly severely? A bit tied in at the knees too.

Over all not a terrible mare, but I'd be careful with her back. She'll make a lovely all arounder and I love her color.

I'm not seeing the long back, to be honest. Her back looks like it's a good length, actually.

I do agree with everything else Endiku said.

In addition, she looks like she stands under herself and may be a bit sickle-hocked behind. Also, she toes out fairly badly in the front.

I think she looks like she'd make a good little reined, to be honest.

If she has the Zan Par breeding, she is a good pleasure horse who can rein. To me, she looks pleasure, horsemanship all the way.

It might be the opposite of long back then, just really short legs? Or even camera angle. Something about her looks disporportionate to me.

nice mare. Her back is not long to me. However, her SI joint point is behind her point of hip, so maybe not the strongest of coupling pelvis to back. Great neck and shoulder. Gorgeous head. Back legs have good hocks, low canons, a bit light on the canon bone and short pasturns with smallish hooves.

Front legs are the "odd" spot to me. LEft front is toed out and the knee is a bit tied in, even looks almost puffy on the front of the knee. Canons are short.


Overall, pretty nice mare.

She has A nice shoulder, but there are several things about this horse that are red flags to me. Her actual back isn't long, but she is very long and weak in the coupling. She also appears goose rumped and sickle hocked. Also she is tied in at the knee. All of these issues are pretty severe which leads me to question the long term soundness of this horse. I honestly think she would not be able to withstand the athletic strain of competition.
