She's very very pretty. Looks like she'll be a great show prospect.

I agree, she's gorgeous! I love her colouring. She looks more thoroughbred than quarter horse to me though.

For Critique:
- definitely needs more weight
- nice head and shoulders
- neck too thin
- long forearms & back
- needs work on her topline
- butt high
- maybe a bit camped out (could just be the picture)

Then again, she's only three, so she might fill out more.
Didn't mean to sound harsh. She's very pretty though, I like her! :)

She looks downhill, small head, butthigh.
She is only 3, so I'm sure she'll grow more & fill out like Jub said. ;)

Ride more, worry less.

Thanks for the great comments!

I agree, she is a little butt high right now (pic may be a little downhill, too). Hopefully that will improve in time.

I'm hoping she will make a nice hunter pleasure and / or all-around horse.
