Trakehner/qh filly I'm interested in. Please critique

This is a 3 yr old trakehner/qh filly I may go look at next weekend. These aren't the greatest photos but judge what you can. She would be a dressage prospect.

She's gorgeous!! I think she'd be good for dressage... looks proportionate, powerful, nice long legs. She does look a bit downhill, though she is only 3 so maybe she'll grow out of it. Her head's kind of big too. But I like the look of her from those pictures!

Pretty, does not look downhill to me. Withers look same height as bum. As far as head, look to be in proportion to me but hey, I own an Trakehner, and she has a huge head with a body to match,

I should clarify... I meant she looks a little downhill in regards to being a dressage horse. It seems like all the upper level dressage horses tend to be built pretty uphill so they can really get off their forehand and get their hind end underneath them for the advanced movements.

She's lovely. I think she has a ton of potential, just from looking at stills.

she appears to have a long back and weak hindend. steep croup. weak stifle. hocks seems a quite high. and light on bone.

overall, nice color, but, id pass as far as dressage or jumping goes and look for something with a much better back and more powerful hindend as well as lower hocks.

I like her neck and shoulder... I think she is both back at the knee and tied in behind the knee.

I don't mind her back length, but she appears to have a long loin, but her LS placement isn't bad. At this point in her life, I wouldn't expect either of those to change. She is downhill in balance right now, she might come level but it's no guarentee - She does appear to be lacking a bit of pelvic length, a bit steep in pelvic angle and may be post legged as well (with a young horse you take a gamble, sometimes by three those angles are much as they will be when done, sometimes they will change)

To me she looks light in bone as well.

Honestly, she has conformation that could be worked with,to some degree, but not ideal. If it were me, and I wanted a horse that could carry me onward in Dressage, I'd keep looking before I went back to her.

Thank you! I'm waiting for the owner to send me better pics of her squared up and I'm also looking at a tb mare, the owner is going to send me some better pics of her too. So I'll post both when I get them
