Critique my 2 year old TB Mare ?
3 Attachment(s)
I recently bought this mare sight unseen ( breed to race hence started so early but didn't want to be a race horse) I'm hoping to turn her into a sport horse when she get older, Eventing/showjumping. Some Opinions on her conformation would be very helpful thanks ! :-)

The last two images are thumbnails and too small to judge conformation from, if you could make them larger that would help. :)
She looks very cute in the first picture though!

Hopefully this is better :-)

I don't know much about exact things she would need to become and excellent showjumper, but she looks like good horse to me, no creepy faults or anything, the pasterns seem a little long to me, but with careful training shouldnt be a problem.
I would just put off riding and training for jumping, apart from free jumps, for about a year, or even more...

I don't have anything to say conformation wise, but she is absolutely gorgeous!

This little filly is NICE NICE NICE.Other than a slightly tall wither (very typical of this breed) and a neck that ties in high because of it, I can't find much wrong with this horse. Nicely laid back wither, strong open hip, straight legs, good length of back and strong coupling. She's a bit wasp waisted but I've found that racing conditioned TBs loose this once they stop training most of the time. I really like her and think that if she enjoys it, she can definitely go the eventing route. I'd actually like to see her do a little show jumping.

However, just as a word of advice, you might think about giving her some time off from riding and let her grow a little more. She's very young and too nice to mess up by pushing her too quickly. What does her pedigree look like?

That is a very nice looking horse!

Are you sure she's only 2? Very nice looking, well put together young mare.

Oops, found a typo xD *nicely laid back SHOULDER, not wither ;)

I, also, am surprised by how mature she looks for a 2 year old, but I'm used to seeing my scrawny little stunted filly so I figured that was just me. Perhaps she's a late two year old.
