Please critique new mare

please critique my new mare.. she is a 7 year old TB about 16.2hh.
Confo, what you think she will be good for, etc...

Her add is the only pics I have at the moment, I know they aren't great for judging conformation but hopefully they can be used a little bit!

Beautiful sport horse prospect! Jumpers and eventers LOOK! - Moonlight Sonah

Thanks in advance for the comments!

Conformation looks good. I like her legs from what I can see, nice hindquarters though she could be a bit deeper through the girth. Neck ties in fairly well too.
I think she would be good for anything you want, but that depends on temper as well. Jumping, dressage or even just trails ;)
Pretty mare

Totally not relevant to your questions for critique, but I love that she's shoeless. Do you know if she was raced? I'm about to pull my TB's shoes for the first time and am nervous as heck about it, so it would be nice to see one that made the transition successfully.

As for the critique, the only thing I see is her front legs are well under her center. Not sure it that affects anything or not. It obviously doesn't hurt her canter. That looks fantastic. Bet she's great at dressage.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

thanks for the comments guys! My plan is to get make her a hunter/jumper but we have a long way to go before that can happen.

Myboypuck, she is currently barefoot because she was hardly handled her whole life. I'm hoping to be able to keep her barefoot since she's been that way for 7 years! I just got her 2 days ago as a project and friend for my filly so i've got my work cut out for me
