Conformation feedback please

Am going to lease this horse for a while, thinking about buying her for trailriding on weekends and riding around the property during the week. She is 16, don't know how many times she has foaled, probably around 8 times, was bred and trained for cutting, has been out in pasture with other brood mares for around 6 months that I know of, and maybe longer. Can find out details from BO when I catch her. She is very friendly, have been bringing her up to groom a couple of times, and rode her for the first time today with snaffle bit and she did great. Don't know anything about conformation, though. Does anyone see anything glaringly wrong?
Hope the pics come through, first time to post pics.

conformation help please

Great. That pic worked. Here are some more. She is bleached out, was much darker when I first saw her in April.
I think she has a really cute face.

Well since she's a broodmare, she should have excellent conformation. And from what I see she does. She's just a little thin

I wouldn't go so far as to say she has 'excellent' conformation, but she's built well enough for what you want to do with her.

She's too thin, though. She needs some weight on those bones. Of course, I like my horses with some heft to them.

She doesn't look bad confo wise BUT please please get some weight on her. Also her feet need to be done.

Is she a QH?

Maybe you could take some pictures of her directly from the sides- standing square and then from the front and back as well.

meh. how smooth of a ride was she?

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

Thanks for your opinions, folks. She is a quarter horse. Yes, she is thin, has been at pasture and not had any grain this summer. Next time the farrier comes I will have her feet done. One of our trainers rode her first in the arena today, and she did great for him, lead changes and all. He says she is rusty. She wasn't used to our covered arena, so I rode her around the property and she felt great. Doesn't have her legs yet, stumbled and tripped a little, and wouldn't lope for me, just trotted faster, but I let it go. We'll work on that tomorrow.
