Critique Leia

I got some legit Conformation pictures!! *le gasp*

She is a 14.2hh nine year old Saddlebred/Pony cross mare who does Hunters/jumpers. I wanna do eventing with her. :)











A few things:
...don't mind my hunchback look in a couple of the pics.. xD she kept pulling on me xD haha
How do her feet look? I've gotten a new farrier and he's done her feet for the past two months. She used to be very uneven and a past farrier was cutting her toe off completely and almost clubbing her feet. She has since gotten shoes and I personally love the farrier.
Rip her apart! In some pics she can look downhill, but in these she looks uphill. SO i dunno.. haha She's not in amazing shape - I can only ride her twice a week (weekends) because of school...

I already know she's upright, but what else? Rip her apart! I wanna know everything! haha How's her topline look?? does she have any major/minor faults?? I'm curious :3

Sorry OP, but if you want an actual critique you need to provide better pictures.

The mare should be stood up squarely and pics taken from front, back, and both sides, and including the head and feet.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

I did.. She's not perfectly square, but it's not impossible to critique what I've posted.. ?

With her head being down it will distort the rest of the body. Her feet look good though.

Like you said, upright in pasterns a bit. Her front right leg looks a tiny bit crooked, in fact both legs aren't totally straight. I think she might be a bit camped under in the back. But honestly, she is actually a tidily built mare that with some conditioning is going to look very nice. I like her!
