12yo TB Mare critique

This horse is amazing. She's my previous trainer's personal therapy horse, an OTT 12yo TB mare, about 15.3hh. My trainer never has her listed for sale, but will sell her to me once we're fully settled into our new house (probably towards the end of the year). I can't say enough about her. She was my first lease/confidence builder that helped me get over some anxiety and eventually onto owning my own horse. Her personality is worth her weight in gold! Just wanted to put a few pictures up here of her to see what y'all thought of her conformation, etc. She goes both english and western and knows much more than I do; I've only ever ridden her western and probably would continue to do so, but I love knowing that I can take english lessons with her and potentially do some showing. What does everyone think?

Oh, here is a video of my first day on Sophie, and first time back in the saddle after a nasty accident. I hated that I had developed anxiety towards riding, but she's really helped me come out of it:

not sure what you are looking for a critique on as i don't see any videos of her in work or true confo pics. she's def a cute mare with what seems to be a nice temperament and no glaring flaws that jump out at me from the little i can see here. congrats on getting her (soon) btw!
