A great big !!!!BE CAREFUL!!!!!. Riding for only a year, will net prepare you for riding something that MIGHT be hot blooded.
If she should get excited, like many of these Pasos can, and you get up tight, it's a train wreck waiting to happen.
I'd sure recommend an experienced rider, that you trust, rider her first and give you an opinion before you try. The experienced rider needs to be someone other than the owner.
As for conformation. Gaited horse are supposed to be slightly sickle hocked, if they are not, they are poorly conformed. I don't know that her back is too long, I'd rather say her legs might be a bit short, but that hurts nothing. If they are short backed and long legged they have a tendency to forge. This girl shouldn't have that problem. I don't see anything wrong with her knees. I'd like to see her neck set just a little higher on her shoulders, and see more slope to the shoulders.
