Swedish Warmblood Critique - possible buy

I've been looking for a new horse for a little while now and came across this Swedish warmblood mare. I'm looking for a horse to do jumpers and possibly lower level eventing with. What do you think of her? Thanks!!

The only thing bad that stands out to me is that she might be back at the knee (right term?) And a little light on the front legs. But overall I think she's nice.
I would think you would need to see a movement video to really judge her for different disciplines.

I can't see anything glaring from the small photo.

What is her breeding? A video may also be useful.

Her back legs bother me. What's wrong with her fetlocks? Is that a bump on her left hind tendon behind the cannon bone? She looks well filled out so I'm lost between a slight roach in her back or if she just has a short back that leads sharply into her bum. She looks to be a bit ewe necked.
I'm new to this but her left hind leg really bothers me.

She is not ewe necked. I do not see a roach either.

Seems like a nice horse. Front legs appear tied in at the knee and light on bone. Back needs more muscled top line but looks strong.

I can't really tell on the neck.
Do you see what I mean on the back left leg? Or is it a trait in the breed to have large bulb like fetlocks?

I see something, but, the photo isn't clear enough to determine something physically wrong...or just hairy legs IMO.

The photo isn't clear enough to really see much at all with the legs but I'm not seeing a roach back or a ewe neck
She actually looks like a good sort for show jumping or eventing - the majority of top eventers are TB's and having fine legs doesn't seem to bother them - when you cross a TB with a heavier horse you can sometimes have problems with a bulky body on fine legs but this mare doesn't look that way
I don't know what this horses bloodlines are but the Swedish WB was originally bred from TB's, Arabians, Trakhener and Hanoverian so they are often lighter in build than some of the other WB's

Thanks everyone! That was the only conformation picture they posted in the ad but I'll get some better ones when I go to look at her. I attached a link to a YouTube video of her free jumping so you can see the way she moves. It isn't the best video for judging movements but I'll try to get a better one when I visit her. Thanks again!
