I see a horse who might do well in gaming events, but maybe not the slower low set Pleasure classes.

She has a high set neck, on a shoulder that might be a bit upright. She also is a little upright on her hocks and her hocks are also pretty high off the ground, which will make it harder for her to drive from beneath her. Over all though, she is a decently conformed filly, but just not what I would look for in a pleasure prospect.

Yeah, way too expensive unless she has the bloodlines to back it up.

I think she's very pretty. I would definetly not pay that for just a riding horse. If you decide on her I would have a vet check her before you buy. I'm not good at conformation flaws but if their saying stuff about her hocks and neck which the hocks I see, I wouldn't pay that kind of money. That's all she may be... Pretty and a neat name. ? Whatever you decide make sure you really think about the long haul. Good luck:)

I think I will pass on this girl for now.... after looking more online, I found some already proven champion two years old for under $5k. I am not looking to spend that much, but if I was, then I would obviously go for the proven winner. Thanks for all your help :)
