Question Confirmation Question

Just curious of my horse's confirmation. I'm one of those people that read Horse and Rider and always try to test myself on the confirmation thing they have where they have 3 horses of various breeds (usually paint and qh though) and genders and I never seem to be able to get the 'right' ones in place lol. This leads me to question my own horse's confirmation.

Information about her is that she's a 6 year old Belgian/QH. She's really just a 'pal around' horse so I'm not really looking for things like "She'll NEVER be a jumper!" Just general confirmation and such. This is the best picture I have of her. One thing I notice most about her is that her back legs are set a bit wide, but that's generally how she stands when ready to work. When in rest, they close in much closer to each other.

Anyway! I'm sure you don't want to hear me continually blather! Here's the pic!

Wow, I wasn't expecting such great replies! Lol. Not that I don't think she's the most gorgeous horse in the world, but what owner doesn't think that?! Lol. Could be as ugly as sin and we love them anyway so it's hard to just step back and take a realistic look lol.

Thank you for such great replies ^_^

Don't keep it all sugar coated though! If she were perfect, she wouldn't be just a pasture pride lol.

hahaha my horses is all pasture too, take him close to a barn and he will give a fit the rest the night....he hates Barn with a PASSION! Hahaha

We don't just look on the out side of the horse but the inside, I love them to death. Some times I wonder what it is that makes me love them so much

It'd be better if she had the saddle off, but from what I see, the hoof angle on the front is slightly off. See how the slope of the hoof doesn't match the slope of the leg. She also seems to have a downhill conformation, which isn't horrible, just harder to ride. And the neck is kinda short from what I see.

Her front hoofs angle doesn't look quite right (not parallel), and she looks downhill to me (but hard to tell because of the saddle). Also a shoulder angle is little too steep. But overall I really like her (and to me she doens't look like Belgian, but more like QH).
