Opinions appreciated

Please critique my new mare for me. I know she needs weight, and a good scrubbing, but I would like to know what y'all think of her. Do not worry about hurting my feelings. I have people critique my dogs all the time. I know these aren't the best pictures, but they are all I have at the moment. Also, can anyone tell me how to decide what disciplines she would be good for? I want to do more than trail ride with her, but I do not know anything about other riding styles. Any help?

In the pictures her legs look a little too far apart but they may be just they way she is standing in the pictures.
Other than needing weight she looks pretty good.
Love that blaze.

Life is about doing something you love and never giving up.

Yes, I think I see something funny about her legs. Looks like the right foreleg turns out at the knee. But once she gets lots of weight back on her...she should be pretty!

Thoroughbreds are usually absolutely suitable for lower level dressage and show jumping (and some also on a very high level, of course), endurance riding and eventing.

I think that you should get her to a better weightfirst. After you've trained her a little bit, you'll recognise what's fun to her. Maybe she prefers dressage to show jumping, or the other way round. I like the way she looks like, but I think she'll need a lot of training to build muscles and good food :)

I think she will look very stunning once you get some weight and lots of muscle on her. I too, noticed how she was standing kinda awkward in the front, maybe you just took a picture at the wrong time each time lol. It happens.
