She looks like a great all around pony. I would try hunter/jumper, trail riding, and I bet she would be good at gymkhana. It all depends on if she likes to do it, that's the main idea. Because if she doesn't enjoy what she's doing she isn't going to pour her heart into it.

what a cutie! Hard to say what discipline she'd be good for unless we see her move. What do you want to use her for? I say try that and if she doesn't like it move on to something else!

From the pictures. I would say huntseat or just english riding. No saddleseat, you would never do very well, since this horse is a stock horse. I'd have to see a video of you riding her to say for sure.

Not dressage.

Like the other posters, I agree with that it's hard to tell unless we see her move.. Although, it depends on what you want to do and what she likes/excels at. Not looks.

Maybe she would be good at eventing! She has a stocky leg confo, which will help on the XC if I'm correct! Just do what you both like!

I think she could do dressage just fine at the lower levels.
Maybe jumping?

Most horses can do anything in the lower levels.

I suggest lower level dressage to get a solid base... then I say she would look terribly cute in jumper get up.

Impossible to tell without seeing her move though.
