What do you think of this mare? Conformation, Under saddle - Over all opinion

The girl in question is a ten year old OTTB, 15.2hh if she's lucky. I am looking for any over all opinion of her, conformation, her look, how she appears under saddle etc... Also what would you use her for? She is peppy, does a lot of sideways TB trotting and bouncing around if she wants to canter. She needs further training so don't expect much.
Don't be terribly mean to her about her big belly or lack of muscle PLEASE - She looked like this not long at all ago and came complete with worms.

Photos taken tonight....

Her beautiful head -

Pictures of her under saddle and behaving for the most part.

I was riding her in the yard, field etc not in an area... for reference.

First of all - pet peeve - untwist your reins when you are riding! And untwist all the straps on your bridle too please.

I think she looks fine and with more training could be a great all round horse.

Love that bridle on her, so cute but I would be the same, untwist it please, not comfy for her. When she builds up her topline and gets some muscles on she will look a lot different and will have more pep in her then. Be prepared,

Shes very cute! I like that she dosent have that typica petite bone structure in her legs. I would probably buy a horse like this if I was looking for another horse. Def untwist those reins, I think cotton ones can be harder to keep straight them leather though.

Thank-you, anything else (About the horse, not the tack)

I cannot un-twist these reins, they are as un-twisted as they'll ever be, its a cute bridle, the only "English" one we have, but its always twisted.

Her back appears to be exceptionally long and she is a bit camped out in the back. That is all I really see other than needing some weight, muscle, and toning. Her face is absolutely gorgeous and she appears to carry herself well.

What a pretty girl...I have a soft spot for black horses :)

Take the bridle to pieces and put it back together untwisted. That's going to really annoy her soon.

She's a good looking horse, some muscle and lose that big belly she'll be gorgeous.

I agree that you need to take a couple minutes and disassemble/untwist the bridle/reins and use the tack how it was meant to be used.
