What do you think about this little mare?

She is a two year old Palomino/quarter horse cross that is 14.2 HH.

What do you think about her, Conformation?, What should I start doing with her, Groundwork wise?

She's beautiful!!! To me her conformation looks great....as far as ground work it really depends on what she knows so far and what she does when you lead her and how she acts and responds to certain things

Your horse can only be as brave as you are

Only thing that sticks out is that it looks like she has a shirt neck

It's hard to judge her conformation since she isn't standing square. She is cute though! Work on leading, moving away from pressure where your leg goes, scary objects (balloons, kids, tarps, balls, goats, blankets hanging off fences, etc.), moving backwards, etc. Good luck! Try to avoid lunging as it's quite difficult on a horse's joints. If you do want to lunge use big circles or even go around the arena (walk in a rectangle kind of).

Kinda hard to critique with those pictures, but she does have a short neck & a small head.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.
