Confo Critique on my Jumper Please

Hello,

I'd love a confo critique of my mare as I am trying to help develop my eye. She is a 10 yo Thoroughbred/Appendix cross, 16'2. We are doing jumpers and man is she athletic. This horse can twist 4 ways in the air at once. (maybe not quite desirable, but we're working on that - lol!)

Since these pics were taken several months ago, I have really built up her weight and topline, so she is looking even better. I'm leasing her right now with an option to buy at the end of the year if everything works out.

She looks pretty straight and fairly balance... with good hooves etc. Not very well muscled in these pics at least, but that can be improved (: Her neck's kinda short but she has good cannon bones. Critique me? (:

Critique my jump position, etc? (:

She looks a bit camped out, which is a rather large problem. And there seems to be something going on with her fores, do they normally twist like that?

Her face is really pretty, makes me miss my old grey TB :(

In the first picture is she standing on uneven ground?

Yes. It is slightly so. That is why she looks really downhill in the first pic and less so in the other where the ground is more even.

It looks to me, from the last picture, that she's a little narrow in the chest/legs - But of course that could just be because of her breed..? Although I would like her to be just a little more broader..! But maybe its just the picture :) Otherwise it looks like a very nice horse, she looks so sweet!

She has added a lot of muscle, which helps. Shed only been in steady work for a little while in these pics after sitting in a field for several months I'll have to take some new pics. I have some video, but it isn't good for seeing the confo.

Her right front heel is low and we are working with the farrier to build it up. May try bar shoes if I buy her. Her feet weren't great when she came to my barn - her last farrier had in shoes that were a size too small.

No sure why he legs look twisted in the one pic- I see thy too. She doesn't normally look like that. Maybe it is a quirk of the footing. I'll take a good look next time I am out at the barn.
