TB mare critique.

My Lady Livermore, "Sunny," 2008 TB mare. Currently 15.3.

I know she has quite a few faults, but I'd like to get other opinions as well. She will be a low-level eventer.

(Yeah, I know, only one picture from one angle. Sue me! )

Thank you!

58 views and no critique? I must have a perfect horse!

I got some more photos today. Not much but better than what I had!

And just 'cause she's purty.

I think she looks nice, the only thing I see is the sloping back end, the tail is not set at the highest point of the rear end.
Nice horse!

Thank you!

What I see:
-Hunter's bump
-Slight roach
-Upright pasterns
-Slight downhill build
-Slight ewe neck, but I'm hoping that will improve with more riding.
-Toes out on hinds.
-Narrow chest.

Anything else?

Oh, and just want to add that her feet aren't as long as they look in the front shot, I promise!

Pretty girl with a lovely expression.
Her hoof angles, particularly the front, look a little steep to me.
She stands under herself & is a little cow hocked.
I wouldn't say that she has a roach or an ewe neck. Her neck muscling is upsidedown and that can be changed. Her back is long with a weaker hind end and a low tail set but not a roach.

Good luck with her!!

Her shoulder is rather upright. This will restrict her ability in both dressage and jumping.

I can't think of anything to add that hasn't been mentioned, other than she has nice low-set hocks, with short pasterns and canon bones. Overall, she's a really cute girl- lovely face and color!

Hello, I love your girl's colouring she's really sweet. Her neck and quarters wouldn't worry me as she's still young and will hopefully develop with correct riding/ training. She looks like she has a nice short strong back and deep chest from what I can see. Her front pasterns are a little upright but not too bad, and I'm not sure if it's the way she's stood but in a couple of the pictures she looks slightly over at the knee and back on her hocks and a bit cow-hocked and narrow at the base with her front legs. That however, is nit-picking. Overall she's quite good and she has such a nice face and kind eye. I have never come across a hunter's bump though what's that? Similar to a roached back?
