Considering this Mare for Halter Classes

Hello. I have a 14.3H sorrel Quarter Horse mare that I am considering to compete in Halter Classes. Please let me know if she has any faults and her overall body structure. She is a beautiful little mare. She has a nice color to her with her four white socks. Here are some pictures. I will try to get some conformation shots but these are my only current ones.

She looks like she has been living the good life in a pasture. Has she been worked or ridden much? I see her needing a lot of ground work to get her muscles back into condition. Do you know what her bloodlines are?

A woman can NEVER have too many horses.....

She has had an excellent life in pasture. I would work her 2 or 3 times a week last year but this year haven't worked with her a whole bunch. I lunge her occasionally. I started to get back into working with her about 4 or 5 weeks ago... My friend and I rode her a few weeks ago and she did fine. I rode her 2 weeks ago and she bucked me off. I have a broken collarbone so can't exactly work her now. Yes, I have her papers...Here's a link to her bloodlines: Freckles Dixie Belle Quarter Horse

She's a little chunky monkey lol, but pretty! Ok dumb question, why do all halter bred horses have teacup hooves? *sorry to derail*

She is the little chunk. :) She is currently on a diet though. No, her feet aren't 'tiny'. It's just the pictures...

Decent bloodlines, nothing to show she would be good in halter, I think I would write her off for riding too since she bucked you off and broke your collarbone. That to me is just too dangerous a horse. Let her be a pasture puff and find another horse.

Since she has done this and found it is a great way to go back to being a pasture puff I wouldn't work with this horse unless I had someone there to help train. Sounds like she is smart enough to come up with other things too like moving into personal space? Does she do any of this?

She was $1,250... I'm getting my moneys worth out of her. I'm not having a 'pasture puff', too much expense for her not to do anything. She just needs a little training is all. I also need to get a new saddle blanket on her as mine is very old. She was an excellent little rider... Just hasn't been used in awhile. She was in parades, trail rides, was going to be a barrel horse but some things got in the way. No... She has pretty good ground manners. Actually, I have taught her to bow and back up by vocal teaching.
