She's not too bad, I wouldn't expect her to be able to successfully compete beyond Medium level in Dressage, but will be good to learn on.
Quite a long back with long cannons and quite a straight hind quarter which may mean she struggles a bit when you ask for further collection.
Shoulder is good, neck set on well and will improve when topline is built. Throat latch is maybe a tad thick but nothing that is going to give her grief.
She's be a lovely project for someone I think, that wants to go out and dabble in a bit of everything to have fun.

Don't know much about conformation so cant comment on that but she's gorgeous :)
Do you happen to know her pedigree?

In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. Eleven-hundred pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.

Hey she will only be going to dressage school to improve her skills as only have a large paddoc to work her in she will be more of a show hack so defo won't be going far with it :) the more I get to know her the better she is soooo quiet she seems a accept the bit well .... Iv worked her on the lunge with a pessoa system and shes stunning ..., my last show mare was a lot longer in the back and she had no dramas and became a royal show hack ( due to injury now retired ) iv never had trouble getting them on the bit and working in a nice frame is this common for the longer backs?? Yes I have her papers she's a unraced tb sire: untouchable dam: heavenly encounter I got her of friends who believe she's not big enough to race (they like 16h+) so here she is with me I think I'm going to buy her ..., when I ride her she feels as if she maybe 12+ but really shes just turned 3 pretty happy do far ;) :)

I like this horse. She is a bit liong in the back and built down hill, but nothing that cannot be overcome with training for the use you have in mind.

Would love to see a video of her lunging.

^agree with this, and the big dip behind her withers concerns me, but she's got that big TB wither...so it stands to reason she would have the big dip.

I quite like her, although I can see what Kayty is pointing out as well. You've gotten a couple good opinions.

The 04 falcon pull anything from cars to 2 horse all around Australia When I got her she was quiet even she is a slow grower hence to me getting her (unraced) she was 15hh I can see she has grown in the back :) hopefully she follows with her front with her breeding she is suppose to reach 16+hh as a 3yo. She still has time to grow some tb are sooo slow ( lucky for I wouldn't have her otherwise) .....
