AQHA mare

This is a 9 year old AQHA mare picked up from an Innisfail sale, for $380. She is halter broke, and I am guessing has had roughly 10 rides, or hasn't been ridden in ages. She's ok at a walk, but VERY nervous at the trot, and doesn't respond to leg pressure. She is mostly Zippo Pine Bar bred, however Poco Bueno can be found about 6 generations back. What do you think of her? Things that pop out at me are her long back, calf knees, and looks more like a gelding then a mare.

I don't like her butt at all. It might be the picture angle, but it is way out of proportion from her body. I know QH butts are big, but her's is too big. Her back is long. Other than these, she's a pretty color and she's got a nice face.

I don't think her butt is too big. I don't think its out of proportion. And I don't think her back is all that long. Lol.

Goose rump. Stands a bit too far under herself. Something about her neck and withers...

It may be the angle at which you took the picture that makes her rump seem too large but I like her looks. She seems balanced (taking into account the angle). Her top line is fine, she has a clean throat latch, a nice neck, good depth, nice angle to her shoulder, and an OK head. She may be a little straight in her pasterns but it could be the angle of the pic again.

She actually looks a lot like my gelding (pedigree is in my signature).

Her back looks really long. Although it looks like the picture was taken from up higher. Rough pictures to critique with.

I think it was the way she's standing that makes me think her butt is big. I also like warmblood horses, so I'm not a fan of QH butts.

She's a very nice looking horse though.
