Smile other potential buy

Those of you to see my thread with the appaloosa, he is still in the picture. Just looking around to be sure what horse is right for me :) I tried to get the best shots I could, I know the front and behind ones are a little iffy.
Don't critique my riding- I know it's been better.
This is a haflinger cross, 10yo, about 14 h. Have at it!

cute horse. A bit long of the back but otherwise well built. I like Haflingers. They are awesome all around horses.

I agree her back is a tad long and her back legs could be straigher but overall she's got a nice stocky build & a lovely color

Thanks :) and quite obviously her long back does not have a whole lot to carry as far as I go haha. So that shouldn't be an issue. I forgot to mention I just plan to use her for pleasure riding. Playing around at local shows and maybe trying some CTRs.

She's a cute little thing. I agree with her back being a little long, but is it just me or does her neck look a little funny? Or is that a Haflinger charecteristic? (I'm too used to QH conformation to judge other horse breeds )

SHe looks like a lovely little horse!

Her neck has a huge crest. I presume fat as the barn owner said it went away when she was in better shape and being ridden more.

Haha my Perch/cross has a super cresty neck like that! It was a lot worse when she was fat and jiggled all around whenever she moved
