We really can't tell much about her conformation with those photos. Do you have any of the mare untacked and squared up?

No unfortunately I don't its actually a mare I am interested in going to see for a possible purchase but she's 3.5 hours away so I was looking for opinions

The one with her without the rider is the closest I have to being squared up.

Very nice looking mare has a beautiful head. Just really like her looks .

She is extremely posty legged in the back, quite downhill (and appears both downhill/forehandy in the first picture). In her moving picture, she is not reaching under herself at all.

There also appears to be something going on with her right front in the third picture (the one closest to the camera) so I'd keep an eye out for that if you are considering going out to see her. Depending on what you are wanting in a horse, I would probably keep looking.

I like the looks of her. I do notice in the pic without the rider, it almost appears that she has a clubbed foot on her left front. How old is she, do you know?

She's very cute! I like her. ;)

This is an attractive mare. Starting at her feminine, attractive head, this mare has a large, expressive eye. She has a neat throatlatch. Her neck is lovely, and, though a tad short, it ties in well. She boasts a nice angle to her shoulder and a good depth of heartgirth. Her forelegs are well-built, and all I can fault them for is a slightly long cannon bone. I cannot comment on the conformation of her back, as she is saddled, but I can say that her croup is a bit short and steep, though nicely rounded. Her hind legs are a bit straight, but I would not go so far as to call them post-legged.

Overall, she is a really lovely, well-built mare! I really like her! :D
