Please critique my mare's confirmation

Vegas in a 7 year old Paint mare. I just bought my sweet girl in May. She had 60 days professional training but was then, unfortunetly, put out to pasture for a year until I bought her. I am hoping to work with her for western pleasure as well as english pleasure. I think she is absolutly gorgeous but I would love to have some unbiased opinions. I know this is not the best picture but it was the best I could find at the time.

She is very pretty!

She looks quite well put together, but with her foreleg being back like that it's a little hard to tell what her front end is like. He neck looks a teeny bit long, but that could be an optical illusion!

"Did I not just use the word 'puzzling'?"

Well it's hard to really be sure because she's not standing square but I'll give it a try and someone can correct me if I am wrong. (This is from what I've learned from the conformation clinic in the magazine HOrse & Rider so I'm no expert).

Like Lobelia said the neck seems a tiny bit long. But usually the distance from the poll to the beginning of the withers is twice as long as the "under neck" part, and it seems to be good there, although I don't know if the neck is to long if compared to the proportions of the rest of the body.

Not sure, but the neck seems to tie high into the chest which is good because he won't be so heavy on the front end... Overall she seems well muscled and fit looking... and that's all my poor expertize can notice for now. ;)

A ride a day keeps the worries away!
