Well in the pic her neck connects to her withers a bit funny and she has a long body...her hocks also seem a bit to strait but after watching the video she still moves very well and beautifully so even if they are a tad strait I dont think it would be an issue.

Thats my critique lol but either way she is absolutely gorgeous!

Thank you, I see what you mean about the withers and the neck thing. She does have very straght hocks I see../.

Thanks! Your opinion was taken into roll!!

Quite honestly, yes, there are some faults on her, but I really think she's attractive!

Her withers are high, but that is really a TB thing. Her rump though, is shaped very awkwardly, it's like, too round and not a good round. She's at a good weight. But her chest sticks out entirely too much and is rather squared off if you see what I mean. I would like to see her much more squared up but I'm nearly positive she is sickle hocked. Also, as a result of the build of her chest, she stands under herself.

But, like I said, there is something about her, it may just be her shiny coat though, that really draws my attention.

Thank you everyone! I love her for some reason...

Harlee rides horses- Yeah, her haunches are like that, but all Racing thoroughbreds have rather large haunches, and very round like that. I see what you mean by the chest, and her hocks, but it may also be the position she is standing in, and her tail is in the way...

Thanks everyone!!

No, I've seen plenty OTTB's and none with that hind end. I think the reason it appears the way it is is because of her straight hocks. So her tummy ties in weird with her legs which tie in weird with her rump making it protrude out the back a lot more than necessary.

Do you think she is cut out for Hunter/Jumper?
Or will her conformation get in the way.

Based on her gaits in the vid I dont see any issue with jumping her myself. Even with her faults she has a balanced gait which is what i think you would be looking for in a jumper, to help time jumps properly and all...

I dont think it would get in the way but thats just my opinion...
