Horse i want to buy *Conformation*

Ive been looking for a new horse for awhile and my old instructor is selling a young mare I think she is almost 4. I wanted some critiques on her conformation and what she would be suited for :)

Okay...um...wow? Beautiful. Is she a TB? If she ends up sold before you get there, she's not in my barn!

By the way, eventing. You'd win on the dressage phase alone.

I don't event but I would think she is very fine boned for anything too strenuous

I see nothing wrong. My eyes might be playing tricks on me but she's lovely. Also love the color. Greys are my favorite.

Beautiful looking horse with big movement.

Only things that bother me are the upright pasterns, particularly noticeable in the front and the hind legs are quite straight.

She's lovely! I love UB40! I'd would say buy her quick! She looks like a jumper to me.

I see light boned, very small feet for her size and the upright pasterns. I also think she's a little post legged behind.

She is quite flashy with a lot of presence, but I am not as enthusiastic about her movement as some of the others, based on the one photo. She has a fair amount of knee action; and she is nowhere close to tracking up. Also, if you look at the diaganol pair of legs, they're not parellel - she reaches forward more from the front than the back. I wouldn't draw firm conclusions from one photo, I would want to see video or her moving in person.

She does naturally travel uphill, which is a huge asset for dressage.
