What do you think of my mare? Will she ever make a good eq/medal horse?

This is a video/pictures of my mare.

I really wanna use her for medal/eq but I know she can get pretty fast times. What do you guys think?

I really can't give any critique but I could give you some suggestions for her going too fast.

Are there any Dressage coaches around your area? If so, Dressage lessons would help you learn how to control every part of her body. It will help you roll all of her energy onto her haunches and help lift you over the jumps. It can also help you control her speed more easily.

Shes pretty cute! Honestly, I think she would be a fine hunter. I'm not so sure about a derby or an A rated hunter. Her stride isn't as open and long as some A rated horses that I have seen, but don't let that stop you from doing it! I know what it's like riding the "underdogs" so to speak. Really work on being consistent with your speed and spots with the fences. Relax your upper body, and don't get so ahead of yourself. Try to keep your arms a little more up on her neck, and no so much draping over her neck. Work on those legs girl! The stronger your legs, the better position, jumping position, control, and your riding will be so much better! Take her to a few shows, so the medal classes! Who cares who your going up against, just go in there, show the judge what you have, and who knows! You could come out of the arena with some blues and reds!(:
