Lovely colour! She looks very sturdy. I agree, small hooves, and she is definitely sickle-hocked, as well as camped under. The jumping pics look very odd to me. She doesn't seem to be jumping correctly. I think her take off point is way too close to the jump and she crosses her back legs. Do you have trainer to help her with jumping?

Yes I do - not a 'trainer' but her owner is a qualified instructor and she trained her so I will give her a call soon and ask for a jumping lesson once I get my new saddle. Yes I love her colour - its so vibrant.

Are small hooves nessicarily a problem? =S

Well, you can look at the hoof issue like this...smaller hooves are something that the halter industry has had some difficulties with. A smaller hoof under a large horse can cause some serious problems down the road...meaning stuff like arthritis and navicular. It puts unnatural pressure and stress on parts of the hoof that arent meant to have it. Careful shoeing and preventative supplements help quite a bit. Some horses won't ever have problems and some will. As a jumper there is a good possibility that she could have problems down the road.

She's got pretty small feet for such a big body and she looks butt high. Pretty color.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

I won't repeat what others have said, but her jumping worries me. Is she very new to jumping? It's not the takeoff point doesn't worry me, but the fact that she hangs her knees pretty noticeable definitely does. She seems like she is having fun, but this is a pretty dangerous fault.

^^^she's a dangerous jumper. she does not pick up her front legs! her knees are almost pointed straight down...their forarms should be perfectly horizontal with the ground. cute horse but if you want to persue a jumping career then this is not the horse to do it with. i had a horse that i loved and he jumped llike that and my trainer would not let me do cross country jumping. she said he was too dangerous and one of us would end up seriously injured. so good luck
