I'm trying to learn more about conformation, so I am interested in any and all critique of my mare. She will be four next month. She is probably an Arab mix of some sort, but we don't know for sure. She is about 15.3 and tapes out at 900ish pounds. She has grown almost 4 inches since I first met her last spring. She is started under saddle, but not in heavy work yet. She has had most of winter off. We don't have a particular discipline other than just riding for fun-I enjoy games (Like musical stalls, etc), so we may try some of those at local fun shows some day. I'd also like to be able to hop a crossrail now and then. I ride english and bareback, but our coach is sure she would make a reining horse
.She is a hairy yak right now in the photos I took yesterday for this- she is much more elegant when not so fuzzy. Hopefully these photos are good enough to give me a general idea of her strengths and weaknesses. Thanks in advance for your time.
Last Summer-just for looks

I also have a video training summary of what she has learned since I got her at the end of august, and the quirks she has, if it helps to see her movement. When I got her she knew nothing- not even how to be groomed/feet picked up, and I hadn't ridden in 6 years. I think we are progressing well, even though we are going slow.
