Halter prospect?

What do you think? She's 13 years old. She's a bay roan sabino quarter pony. 14 hh. She's very willing, but not much of a riding horse [she bucks] Does she have a future in halter? Also feel free to critique anything about her except her mane. [she had been rubbing, i fixed it, though]

She's VERY bulky!! I don't know much about conformation. Well... I know enough, but I'd be afraid to say anything and be wrong. Haha. But She sure does have some muscle mass!

Not the best shot for judging her conformation, but from what I can see, I like; she should make a decent halter pony, yes.

Has she had health checks (thorough ones, even chiro, or acupuncture) to rule out physical issues that would cause her to buck undersaddle?

I am a bit old fashioned maybe, but I like a stocky QH. I think she is a good hunk of horse and from the pic looks fine. I am concerned that she is not ridable? Whats up with that?

I'm able to ride her..it's jsut that she had a problem with her feet and so I had to take some time off of her until we got it fixed [she just needed eggbar shoes] and when I came back she was bucking. I think I've almost got the problem solved, she's just got a mare-ish attitude now.
