Conformation Critique For AQHA Mare

I Mostly like this mare, her obvious weakness seems to be her LS placement, and her length of loin! Her shoulder slope is in the steep side, but it comes with a pretty open shoulder angle. Overall she is a fairly balanced horse (as in her front and back match... She is downhill like 98% of Qh's ), and she doesn't have much else screaming at me.

She has a cool sire. Is she posted for sale? Swear I have seen this mare before?

Oh my gosh, sorry that this isn't a helpful critique because I'm not so good with conformation, but she is absolutely gorgeous, I really like this mare. If she goes missing, don't look here...

I did have her listed for sale but my gelding sold first so I took her off the market. We just sent in her AQHA registration application last week too. Can't wait to get her papers back!

Maybe I'm having a brain malfunction, but what does LS stand for?

LS joint is the short form for lumbo-sacral joint and it is probably the most important joint in regards to how well a horse will move. It should be no less than level with the point if hip (when viewed from the side) but further ahead (closer to the wither) is even better. The LS can be found just ahead of the point of croup (if you go feel your horse you will find it by running your fingers along the spine until you hit a "soft" spot). From a photo you can use the point of croup as a good marker.

The LS placement will determine how well and how easy it is for a horse to transition, perform a sliding halt, push off into a gallop or jump, collect properly, extend or shorten stride.

I agree with TheLastUnicorn, as she looks fairly balanced to me overall!

I really like her!!
