Critique my Thoroughbred mare
Please critique my thoroughbred mare. Shes 9 this year and has been off the track for two years which she spent in a paddock spelling. What discipline would she suit? Sorry for the bad photos. She would not stand still.

Very pretty head.
Neck could use some muscle and she is high in the wither (often typical of some TB's)
Nice shoulder and good, deep girth.
Back isn't too long and she has decent hindquarters.
As for her legs, the fronts are a bit buck-kneed and the backs are sickle-hocked. Long pasterns as well.

Thanyou :) We have just started putting her on the bit so she should get some neck muscle soon :)

She looks like a nice horse. Decently built, maaaybe a weakish loin.

A good all-around lower level horse for sure. Would be a decent jumper, I think, if she enjoys that.
