Critique DeeDee - daughter wants to jump!

Here is our coming 4 yr old reg Appy mare.
My daughter wants to start jumping and this is her horse. Would like some suitability opinions.

In picture is when we got her as a yearling - her Feet had NEVER been touched

other picture was taken at a little over 3 yrs old (this past summer)

Aww, she's really pretty! :) I like her name as well.
Critique:
It could very well be the ground (it might not be level), but she looks downhill. Long neck & her head looks a bit small & a short back. She has a sweet eye & I love her coloring. Her legs look long as well. That's great she wants to start jumping her (although I'd wait because of her age), I hope she does well. She's very cute!

Ride more, worry less.

oh so cute! i love appy's ...

she looks a bit but high and since she is only three i wouldn't jump her yet (i am not sure if you meant your daughter wanted to start her how or later, if later then ignore me :) ) She totally still has a baby head and neck ... hopefully she will grow into her body a little more .. she sure is cute tho!

I agree. She looks butt high with a long neck and small head. Is she trained for jumping? Has she ever jumped before?

Nope, she is only green broke to walk & trot. She needs lots of saddle work before we even think about going over any fences. We are probably looking at AT LEAST another year before she does any besides ground poles.

She is butt high, I am hoping she levels out as she matures. Her bloodline is fairly slow to mature. She is only 3yrs old in the picture

Thanks,

Her registration name is "Image Delux", we dubbed her "DeeDee"
She has a very outgoing attitude and is pretty willing to please.

May I ask what her ****'s lines are? I only ask because we had a breeding mare named Image and am wondering if she is from the same line as our mare?

Shes cute! I love her coloring! Like everyone has mentioned she is a little downhill, But she does seem to have a fairly good slant to her shoulder, But I bet she would be ok when she grows a bit. Good luck!!
