Critique Maddy- 6 yr old OTTB

So I would love you guys to critique Maddy...

6 yr old
OTTB
16 hands

The ground she is on isn't perfectly even but I had to tie her somewhere otherwise she would have followed me around.

I am sorry she isn't perfectly squared up.

I know he front feet are long, the farrier comes tomorrow- trust me she is on a strict 6 week shoeing.

I know she is toed out in the hind a little.

I am still trying to muscle her up.

I have had her for 2 years. I am doing hunters with her and will start jumping in the spring after all the rain. I have taken a few dressage lessons with her and those are going well.

I have attached lots of pics... standing ones, cantering and trotting to the left, cantering and trotting to the right and a few cute ones

Let me know what you think.

I think she is lovely, im not great on critique but I don't see anything wrong other than what you mentioned, she is muscling up well and has the sweetest face, you should be proud of her

cute. Horses that have one foot forward like maybe be in pain/ uncomfortable (if it happens frequently.) she's very cute. Why does she have hind boots on in one of the photos? I didnt notice them at first.

^she isn't in pain, just antsy she kept trying to reach the grass around her so once I squared her up- she moved!

She has hind boots on in all the working pictures (i always ride/lounge in them)... she interferes a little (notice that she is toed out) and so they are for protection.

trying to understand this, if a horse is toes out why would her back legs interfere? Wouldnt it be the opposite?
