Thank you so much, Elana!
Overall, I'm pretty weak when it comes to conformation, and totally barn-blind when it comes to this mare. She's a big favorite at the ranch for her general awesomeness, so it's helpful to hear an unbiased response to her build.
Your thoughts are very helpful. I had noticed the long back (hard to miss! lol) but the rest is news to me (other than what has been already commented here by lilruffian). In particular, I'm interested to learn of stiff coupling, back at the knee, and potential for curbs/spavins in the future. While leasing her, I was planning to try to help her learn to carry herself and overcome/support what challenges I had noticed. Now I will do a bunch more research to educate myself! She is indeed a joy to ride, and I am lucky to have such a fun horse to lease :)
Thanks again !
