OOTB turned Hunter critique

I don't have a whole bunch of pictures, but I managed to snap a few good ones today while she was napping, to give you something to work off of.

Georgia is a 16.1 hh thoroughbred, I don't know very much about her racing history, but I don't imagine she raced for very long. She's coming five and is the sanest mare I've ever ridden. She's sound and incredibly well schooled, already placing consistently 1st-3rd in flat and over fences at local shows. We're going to our first rated show in a couple of weeks and I'm super excited.

She is a bit 'ribby' but my coach and her previous owner both say there isn't much more weight we can put on her. She's well muscled and the rib in an active thoroughbred is more or less inevitable. I want some opinions on her overall conformation and to know how far she'll go in the hunter ring.

And even though this picture is of little conformational use I'll prove that she's not usually as grumpy as she looks in the above.

What I notice is that she's slightly over at the knee, but I don't see that as being a giant problem, but I'm not an expert by any means.

do you have any shots of her over fences?

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

Not right now, I'm not looking for a critique of her ability over fences right now, as we're still working that up. I'm looking for conformation critiques.

She's a pretty girl. Perhaps you can get some front/back shots to add - they are quite helpful for conformation critique.

Alright, well can anybody use the picture I posted? I don't have other pictures and I wont be able to get some right away, or should I abandon this one and try again another day?

I'm afraid that came off as a little rude. x.x
But I'm sure there's some things people can pick apart from the side shot (unless she's just perfect kidding)
