Hey, I'm really not good at this so I think you should take this with a grain of salt, I just thought I should give it a shot.

I think she's slightly downhill. Her shoulder looks upright and her neck seems a little ewey to me. Maybe? And I think she's camped out?

Well I tried. Hopefully some more experienced posters will be able to help you.

Thanks for letting me try though!

All the pictures are kinda different. she doesn't look downhill in the first picture but she looks camped in, the second pic looks downhill and camped out, in the third pic her legs look good but downhill.

Im not a profesional by any means thats just what I think :)

Beautiful horse over all, and love her markings!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

Interesting markings.

Last photos makes her look down hill. Not sure if that is a good representation or not.

She looks ewe necked to me in all three photos. Her shoulder is pretty steep too.

I am not sure exactly what it is, but she looks unbalanced. Her pieces do not look like they all belong on the same horse. Her neck, her head and her back all do not look like they belong together.

I agree. I don't know a ton about horse conformation but one of the things I do know was what Alwaysbehind said, if the horse looks like its made up of mismatched parts its a good bet its conformation isn't perfect. Then again I know of some horses that are amazing despite less than perfect conformation.

I dont think shes done growing she has some filling out to do then she should look more balanced make sure she is fed good but not too much. Work her in a snaffle so she doesnt resist the bit but is allowed to carry her head naturally. That will fix her top line

That is the unfortunate result of crossing two breeds. Sometimes you get the best of both. Sometimes you don't.

I think she looks a little downhill, and her neck could use some muscling. But I don't think she's a bad looking mare. I love her coloring. and from what I see she has a pretty head.

sorry I'm not the best with critiquing
