She's got nice color & markings, though the first thing that stands out to me is that her back & neck are quite long & it doesn't tie in well with her shoulders & chest. Her front legs look like they may be spaced far apart as well.

Her face is symmetrical, which is good. I will also say her neck and back are long, which doesn't tie well into her shoulder area and withers, which are fairly small.

I don't see much else I can pick on, being a newbie at critiques.

She's 3/4 morgan and 1/2 QH? That's 1 & 1/4 horses ;)

I also think her back and neck are a bit long, however I like the angle of her shoulder. Her shoulder area is a tad small, but the angle is pretty good. She's very cute though :) Interesting breed combination for a barrel horse.
