Comments on this Paint Mare?

What do you think of this girl?

She's 3 years old, broke to ride, has done some ring work and trail riding. She's gentle and quiet, has been used to give rides to children. Still too young for a beginner rider?

Hard to tell how she is conformationally from this pic. Can you get side pictures?

I certainly wouldn't call her a beginners horse, but that's me. There are people who have plenty of luck with green/young horses, but they're usually 100% under a trainer.

You can't tell much from the picture you've provided, but her legs look crooked. She's got a weird neck, but I can't tell exactly what's going on there. Looks like she's long through the back and her shoulder's steep.

I can't tell you for sure unless you provide a photo of her from the side.

Plenty of good dispositioned 3 yr olds are fine for beginners. Our mare lady was started as a lesson horse at 3 yrs and was great with kids. I think she's a beauty and will certainly fill out as she gets older.

I don't think anything is wrong with her neck, I bet you anything it's just her markings. My mare has markings like that on her neck, and if you look at it a certain way it makes her neck look goofy, but from any other angle it's a perfectly fine horse neck. =]

I think she's really cute, and as PaintHorseMares says, there are tons of 3 year old horses with enough brain for beginners. =]

Try this pic. I know you can't see the feet in this one. I will try to see if I can find something that shows lower down.

Riccilove; the neck bows out in that first pic. It's not an illusion from a marking. I can't tell if it's an upside down neck, ewed, or improper muscling.

Ladywantsahorse; That's still a very poor picture to judge conformation on.

You need one like this, but with the horse looking straight forward;

I still think it has a lot to do with the markings making it stand out, as well as the way the horse is standing and holding her head. I stand by my opinion that her neck, from the pictures provided, appears just fine to me.

I see what Paints does, the underside of her neck... sags a bit. Need better pictures though to be for sure.
