She is 17.3 1/2hands , 9 years old. Imported, reg'd Holsteiner! Sorry, forgot to add that. (I'm 5'11 that's why she looks small compared to me!)

I'm so so good at the critique thing, but I think she's really pretty.
You're boots look they're on backwards though? Shouldn't the velcro be on the outside?

I agree, she is pretty but in order for others to give you convo info you'll have to take off her leg wraps and stand her square to the side, to the front and to the back.

Actually, that's how the boots are labeled, so I guess they're labeled wrong
I though so too but I valued her legs toomuch to go against it

As far as confo goes, she's high in the withers. The rest is really hard to tell because of the boots as well as the lady being in the way for proper neck & chest assesment.
VERY pretty girl, though!

As far as I can tell from the photos, she's built really well for a dressage horse or jumper - the slightly uphill build is an advantage in both those disciplines. The way her neck ties into her shoulder is good for a dressage horse, less than ideal for a jumper or hunter. Her confo looks exactly like what is sought after in a dressage horse.

I have to see her without boots and stood up correctly to analyze further.

It would also be helpful to know your intended use for her.
