    She is fairly nice. She just needs some more muscel tone :) But that will come. But overall a nice little mare

But she seems to have a lovely personality.
    I wouldn't say she is goose rumped from the pictures I think it is quite nice, it ties in low and is nicely rounded. I do not see a sharp steep croup on her associated with goose-rumped horses. I always though a goose rumped horse looked like this:

    She's very cute with a sweet face. Sounds like she'll do fine in English Pleasure. Some things I noticed were a very upright shoulder and low set neck without much arch to it (stick neck). Also, make sure your saddle fits with those TB withers. Overall a very nice mare. Have fun with her. :)

    You guys are cute. You really need to pick up the contact and push her forward. How much experience does your mom have? I think she's a cute mare.

    My mother is only doing flat and she started when she bought her.
    She is usually better about going onto the bit, but she was really bad that day, it was in between two storms. I kinda just let he fling her head around...

    Actually in my last post, I see why Harlee said that, in that dark picture I do see a goose-rump. Is there something I missed? I don't see any riding pictures.

    The video is posted right above your first post.

    Sorry it's kind of hard to find

    I love your mare, I also have 3 horses that are full TB and some are part TB, all of them are just as laid backed as your girl. She looks like she would be easy to get a nice extended trot on her

    She does usually extend, though she is lazy so it's sometimes hard to get it out of her. She definitely laid back under saddle. From what we know about her she was breed in Upperville, VA and used as a pre-children's horse when she was younger. Then one owner later she was bought by a dressage trainer.

    Although, she is awful to tack up. She bits the cross ties...
