My Horsey!

I thought I would finally post some pics of my mare just to see what some more experienced horsey people think of her. (don't worry I won't get offended. I'll love her just as much as I do now! Lol)
Info:Her name is All My Hope aka. Mandy
She is a 12 year old Hanoverian and stands 17.1 hands tall. (love it!)
I realize she needs more muscle and I'm currently working on that. Also, I have been told that she needs to put a little bit more weight on but she is not underweight either. (just wanted to know what you guys think about her weight.) Anyway they are not the greatest pics but if you guys can see anything from them that would be great.
Front

Back (sorry for the weird angle. For the life of me she would not stay still or square! If you can't get anything from this angle that's fine.)

Side

Other side

Thanks!

I think she's lovely. Nothing really jumps out at me. You're right, she could use a lot more muscle, and I bet she'll look gorgeous after that. She looks a tad bit goose rumped, but I think that's the lack of muscle, which can be fixed. Very nice horse.

No she's a Hanoverian that unfortunately lacks a lot of muscle!

Nothing really jumps out at me either, except what you already said, muscle and weight. She seems to have fairly straight legs and I like where her neck ties in. She'll be really gorgeous once she fills out a bit more.

I think she's quite pretty, very sweet face! :]

The only thing I notice that has not been mentioned yet is that her shoulder seems a bit steep. In that pic of her left side, it looks like she might have a slight roach back but that could also be the way she was standing. Very pretty horse and her face is so sweet.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Thank you for your comments! I do have one question though. I was told by a saddle fitter that she would never have the muscles she would have had if she were younger. Is this true? (I'm trying to buy a new saddle and she has high whithers and slim shoulders. Lol)

she has quite a long neck and not the most refined head. She seems a bit camped out behind and she could use lots more muscle.
But she is very very cute and I think she would make a great jumper. Gotta love those redheaded mares!
