WhRe your Thoughts on my Youngster Please

After reading a few comments on other peoples Horses , I find very informative , I just wondered if you Guys would give your opinions on my little mare , and where I could improve , and areas and disciplines I couls work to . She is Rising 4 Partbred Arab to make 15hh standing 14.3 on wither and a little bigger on bum .Thank you in advance.

There's nothing I don't like about this mare.

Maybe a little over at the knee. Her left hind looks like the heel is underrun, while her right hind almost appears clubbed in comparison. Could just be the pic or a wonky trim job. Her neck ties in slightly high, but is a good length.

She has a lovely short back, good bone, great angles to her joints all the way around...and she's my absolute favorite color ever.

What is she crossed with?

Hi thankyou for your lovely comments , she is arab/ throughbred with a bit of whatever thrown in , this pic was around July just gone , and her feet needed pairing ,Iam new to the forum so not quite sure how it all works yet .Kind Regards

I'd steal her in a heartbeat...and I'm not even really a mare person. ;-)

As far as what you could do with her...pretty much anything, really. I could see her in the hunter ring, especially.

she looks pretty nice. she could probably do what you want, hunter, some dressage, jumping .

She is certainly a pretty girl. I also like her quite a lot .
She is a bit overweight, though.

I think her bone is not as remarkable as Drafty thinks it is. It's acceptable, in my book. But her front canons are not as short as is optimal. Her shoulder and neck are wonderful .
Her front feet look too long and there's some dishing happening on the front right hoof.

She really is quite a nice filly,

Very nice - I'd take her in a minute. Very pretty girl who could probably do well in just about any discipline you would choose! Love her color and her head.

What others have said...lovely mare.

Strong hindquarters, nice shoulder and great neck. Pretty head. Strong back and topline.

I do not like her front pasterns. Or her trim job. Id be looking for a new farrier. Looks like not enough heel and too much toe.

I can definitely see her in Hunter.

She's nice...a bit chubby, and her hocks look high set to me. But very pretty.
