    Are you planning on jumping her over 2'6"? If not, keep your money in your pocket and not on the boots. They are good, but until she has her foundation and you are actually working her hard IN a sport, leave the boots out of it.

    In the first photo of post #6 her toes look a might long and she is a bit "slipper footed" behind. She might benefit from a trim and light plates for a few months to get her heels longer and her toes shorter. The long toes do not help her slight back at the knee and they can be a source of tripping and excess extension of the tendons.

    In all reality, if you can find someone who knows what they are doing to look at your horse 'hands on' and advise you, you would be better off than taking advice on her (or her conformation) from an internet forum.

    I can tell you what I see in the photos. What I saw standing next to her might be the same or more or less.

    I like to temper what I say with "Advice is usually worth what you pay for it!"

    I only plan on doing trail riding with her. I was hoping once I got her trained and conditioned, we could do competitive trail riding. But that is a not a necessity. No jumping for me. I am a leisurely rider. I was just looking for an activity we could both have fun in a few times a year.

    The first picture in post #6 is when she was around 3 years old. She is almost 8 years old. When I get back to tennessee in a couple weeks, she will be do for a trimming. I will then take a picture of her hooves and see if you still see what you speak of. Hopefully not. But I will do what needs to be done to get her the help she needs.

    She has always had issues with her hooves.. it is been a constant battle since she was 3 months old to maintain them, due to unfortunate circumstances. But it is getting better as she grows with age, thankfully.

    She will make a fine horse for what you plan. She still needs training and to be light on her forehand. It will help her HUGELY to have this training as she works over varied terrain.

    Good luck.

    PS: I have been all over TN. I love it there.
