Please critique possible buy - event prospect OTTB *pics*

I'm in a position where I can afford a second horse, (if any of you recall I had taken in a rescue but had to place her with a friend of mind that has retired her to the status of pampered pasture pet) and this mare came to my attention.

These aren't my pictures but were sent to me by the trainer. She has just come off the track, is 4 years old. 16.3hh. Hasn't had any injuries, no bad vices, a little hot from the track but nothing major. I'm thinking of going and checking her out. If I do get her, I would pasture her for the winter, with only feeding, grooming, etc no working, and start her in the spring.

Please tell me what you think??

I really like her a lot. She is a bit steep in her shoulder and pastern, but other than that she looks really good!

She looks good! Really healthy IMO

I really like her and I think she has potential. She seems to have a good solid build and she'll probably fill out nicely with training. You should go take a look.

Do you think her croup is too short/steep?

She's rather short (in body), but built together nicely. Frankly I think she has lots of potential (and she's cute too). I'd give her at least a look.

I think she is going to look really good once she fills out a bit and matures a bit more. While her conformation isn't perfect (is there such thing as perfect?) I don't see anything that would prevent her from being a good riding horse.

I guess the big question is what do you plan on using her for? Then maybe responses can be tailored better for what you want to do with her.

^it says in the title that she's looking at her as an eventing propect^
