Possibly new mare

Soo, I have recently decided to start leasing, and that quickly evolved into buying. Long story short, the mare I was to lease the owners would rather sell, and so here I am.

I do apologize, I know these aren't proper conformation pictures, or even anything close, but I wanted to see if you all could spot anything glaring. Next time I go out to see her I will try to get good confo shots.

What I know about this girl is that she is around 10 years old about 15 hands, shown AQHA successfully in her youngest years, then sold. Sometime after she was sold she went to a trainer that messed her up pretty bad. In her latest home she got lots of love, and she is back to near normal. Totally safe, just moves with quick short strides. She and I will continue to take lessons together, as she is to be my first horse.

I am not the rider in any of these pictures (nor did I take them), and people have been edit out where possible to protect their privacy.

Don't be fooled, she's not on level ground here.

So, is there anything that you all have to say about her? I will be back with proper photos in the next few days.

Wanted to add her pedigree:Absolute Crystal
Never heard of most of these horses, with the exception of Zippo Pat Bars, and that's wayyy back. Anybody that can give some insight?

She has a nice pedigree.. The Investor, Sunny Dee Bar and so forth.

From what I see I like her. She loos balanced and relatively well coupled. The one photo her neck looks short and she looks resistant but I think that is just the photo. She looks to have a good disposition (quiet). Hind quarters look powerful (good considering the breed).

I will wait for conformation shots to say anything about the angles and so forth. Like what I see so far. How do you like riding her?

I loved riding her, she was so smooth and easy going. Unfortunately for me, she will be going to another home. T_T I'll have to keep looking for another horse.
