How does this horse look? Rate her.

I really like this horse, but I wanted some opinions on her body shape. Rate her from 1-10 and please tell why. :) Thank you.

Not the best pictures but it looks like she has a swayback/high withers. She looks kinda skinny and I would like to see riding pictures. Honestly, she doesn't look that well put together to me.

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

I disagree. She is not a beautiful horse, but she is put together just fine. Her rump is high, but most qh's are that way. Her neck attaches correctly to the back and her hocks are NOT too straight or posty. She has a dropped belly. Has she foaled a lot? I would hardly call her swayed, tho. I would want to see her under saddle. I think, tho she isn't pretty, she is built just fine and may be a darned good all around horse. I bet she picks up that belly when she is engaged. Afterall, remember that horses do not raise their backs with BACK muscles; they raise their backs with ABDOMINAL muscles, just like we do!

I don't see a sway back and she doesn't look thin to me. She isn't spectacular looking. I give her a 5.

What do you plan to do with her?

I'm not impressed, especially since they're asking $2,400 for her.

She's okay but nothing spectacular, and she's certainly not what I'd consider pretty.

She's not swaybacked at all, so I'm not sure where anyone would see that. She's definitely downhill though, and her shoulder is straighter than I like.

Her feet, pasterns, and legs look fine, although her neck could be longer.

She's also for an intermediate only rider, which tells me she has some quirks or isn't as well trained as the owner indicates.
