Critique her for me please!

Shes an OTTB. 16.2, 9 years old and is trained in jumping and flat. She has issues in trailering and is being worked on for grooming. She likes to go to work and doesnt like to be fussed over. If I get her I will work with her on this.

She looks like she is in very good shape physically, I like her color too.
I mainly wanted to comment on the jumps. Looks like they have all the Holidays covered

I don't even know where to begin as for all the problems I see in the first picture. If you get her, you are going to have some retraining to do. She needs muscle all over, and needs to work on her topline. She's been worked, but worked improperly as you can see from where she has built up muscle. She would be a project if you took her. How much are they asking and what is her grooming issue?

Topline was the first thing that struck me too!

I pretty much agree with what pepperduck said.

I'm not even going to comment on the jumping picture.There is a lot wrong, and IMO its not fair to critique the horse. She's doing what she can based on the rider.

Besides needing topline, she doesn't look too bad, though I'd want to see better/more pictures of her and from different angles too.

I would be curious to know what exactly her issues are with trailering and grooming. If you're wanting to compete or trail ride or anything, the trailering issue could get in your way (I know because I have a horse who has trailering issues and its messing up what plans I had for him). And the grooming issues should be interesting. She looks nice and shiny in the one picture and looks well groomed, so i'd just be curious what those problems are.

Her head does not look proportionet(sp?) to her body.

In the second pic she looks like a QH.
