New Horse - Any Glaring Faults for WP

Just picked this girl up and as of now this is the really only good photo I have. The rest were taken with poor sunlight direction, so I will try to get some more posted. She is out of the Quarter Horse stallion Epitome, I guess he produced some nice western pleasure horses and I don't have the papers right now and have forgotten the dam's name. She has the most beautiful jog I have ever ridden.

She looks like she's got a pretty long back, but that might just be me. I like her, I think she's really cute. Your lucky to have a horse with a nice trot on her ha ha :P

Either her back is long or her head is small, depends how you look at it. She has a really sweet look for her, and I bet she's a great horse. :)

It almost looks like her neck is a little too long, and set too low.
Her back looks a tad long, but it's not a big deal in my eyes.

I also think the neck looks a little low-set. I do like the length of her neck - you want a longer neck for WP so I think that looks great. The only other thing I noticed was that she looks pretty upright in her hocks in that picture, particularly in her back right. It may be the picture and the angle she is standing......very hard to tell. Love the muscling and overall balance.

Thank you all, I agree with the neck, but that was the type neck I was told to look for by a friend who does AQHA shows. She also said it sat a bit low, but not to worry for the level of showing I would be in.

Her hock looking straight is the ground, our yard is not level by any stretch of the imagination.

She has the most beautiful little jog that I have ever ridden. Basically she has sat in a pasture for the last couple of years so what exercises would you do to help her since I feel she is lacking a bit in the topline. I think she might be fun to do a couple of western pleasure shows in. She will probably do far better than me.
