Critique this mare!

So I just bought a new horse. She's a 16.2 hand thoroughbred mare. She's 8 years old and has been off of work for about 2 years. Tell me what you think of her!

I will warn you right now, I'm not the best at critiques, but I do love TBs and this mare is quite the looker. What are you planning on doing with her? Overall, I think she's a nice looking mare, especially through her shoulder :) Enjoy her!

Thanks! I think she's quite the looker myself, I'm a sucker for TBs though. As of right now, the plan is to get her restarted under saddle then do some jumpers with her. I'm really excited to get her under saddle!

I love TBs as well! Probably the only breed I'll ever own again :) I have a 13 year old mare now and she's my whole world :) Have fun with your girl, I hope she does great in the jumpers! What's her name? Did she ever race?

Her confo isn't bad really. Her hind legs could be a tad straighter & her neck could use some muscling but other than that I like her! Congrats

I'm not 100% on her registered name because I'm not sure how they spell it. I haven't picked her up just yet so we'll see! Anyway, they just call her Bella and she never raced. Even if she isn't a great jumper, we'll keep her around! :)

Thanks! I'll be working on muscling up her neck and the rest of her! ;)

It's nice to see a TB that has some weight on it. I wasn't expecting that, she is nice looking
