She is short strided... does not reach under herself. Needs to be scopier in her movement to be a high level eventer.

Probably would work for lower levels.

The short stride might be a result of her head being pulled tight with side reins. She looks like she wants to use herself more at the canter, but cannot due to those reins. Glad you're getting her. I think she'll do fine.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.
