TB hunter jumper prospect

Hi everyone, found this mare and I REALLY like her. However, I'm not hardcore looking, just skimming every now and again. She has been started over fences. I would post the link but I have to say I wouldn't want someone else buying her from under me;)

Ad:
Elegant dark Bay 6 yo Registered TB mare. Sweet, calm & kind disposition. In Hunter Jumper training past 2 months, still in training doing great. She is a natural jumper, willing & brave. Really listens to your seat and legs. Light in the mouth. Great top line. Already doing auto lead changes, nice mover, is not spooky. She wants to be a show horse. She has also been rode in western tack. You can ride her in the arena, trails & pasture. I will get more video soon, as her training progress. Great pedigree. A real pleasure to work with, polite ground manners. No bad habits, sound and healthy, current on everything. She has strong hooves (barefoot), good legs/conformation. I can send more pictures & videos. Call or email for questions or apt. To try her out. A good home for this sweet girl.

Sorry guys, I know this is no confo shot, but obviously I can't get better ones atm. Anything to say about the one photo I have? She's not my horse, Im not deadest, I wont be offended. Thanks:)

Yes, she has a Quarter Horsey bum Very nice.
Honestly, there is not much to pick apart here. She's fairly well built. Only thing I can really say is that her neck needs muscle and her cannons are long. Apart from that, I see no glaring faults.

I couldn't agree more, thank you so much:) Biggest issue are her cannons, her pasterns aren't as long as I was expecting since she's a TB. How will having long cannons effect her in the long run?

I'd really like to see a shot of her standing square, looking ahead. From front, side, and back if possible.

Her weight is not distributed very well in this shot - makes it hard to truly gauge the angles/lengths that we like to scrutinize ;)

Lovely calm face and alert gaze, that's a good start.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Anyone know about effects of long pasterns? Should this keep me from buying her altogether? I wont be doing crazy high heights or eventing.

Bear in mind that the ideal length of pastern in a TB is roughly 30% to 50% of the length of the cannon bone. Though her position is awkward, I wouldn't think that she would exceed 50%. Admittedly, she is towards the longer end of the scale.

Generally speaking, the longer the pastern, the weaker the joint, less ideal for high level jumping and high impact endeavours.

Presonally I like her a lot! I think the cannon and pasturn length are a tad on the longer side, but she is a TB and not a QH. I don't think it would impact her at all.

I know that they would breed for shorter cannon bones for racehorses as it would help them run faster, easier. They bred fancy riding horses to have a longer cannon bone as it makes the ride smoother such as a Walking horse etc.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
