Thoughts on my mare's confo/pedigree? Thank you!

I've had my mare Dancer for over 10 years, got her when I was super young so it's not like I did a ton of research on pedigree etc. I'll post a link to her pedigree and some pictures, I'd like any thoughts on conformation/structure and thoughts on her breeding. I ride her on the Ranch Horse Team at my university and just as my riding pal. I've had one filly out of her that turned out really nice, and I'd like to breed her again sometime in the future, preferably to a reining cow horse, reining, or cutting bred stud. I'd love to get more into showing. Suggestions on that are welcome too. I'll probably post that in the Horse Breeding section of the forum. I'm new to this forum so I hope I'm doing this right. I know the pictures aren't great conformation pics, I'll try to take some and post them later. Thanks for the help!

(It doesn't look like the URL is working right, I guess people can just go to and type in her registered name, Zippo Rio Silver. Thanks!)

Here's some picture links below:

Sorry shes not perfectly squared up, this is the best she was gonna give me! Lol thanks in advance for the input.

There is nothing impressive in her pedigree to be honest...

Here is what I see from the pictures

-Ok shoulder angle, some pictures make it look good and others make it look straight.
-Decent Hip
-Very downhill
-Toes out in the back
-Looks a bit Knock Kneed...sorta hard to tell with the angle of the picture
-looks a bit longer in the back
-Short Neck
-Would like to see cleaner throat latch

Thanks for the input, BarrelRacingLvr! :)

And yes, she's on that other site as well. I wasn't getting any replies there yet so I just thought it couldn't hurt to have her on another site where other people might come across her.

Mutton withers, butt high, long back, and slightly sickle hocked. Nice shoulder and a good set to her neck, point of shoulder a bit too low. TOO FAT. She may have front legs that are slightly rotated to the outside.

All that being said, she has a bit of the look of The Ole Man to her.. not as good.. but that same solid look.
