What do you all think
More english looking or more western looking :)
What do you think her body is more built for?
What discipline do you think she looks better in?

She is younger in the 1st photo then the second

3rd and 4th picture were taken in the same day

Definitely english!

dressage! See the second photo? THAT is correct dressage frame for a lower level horse . THAT is self carriage. THAT is an engaged horse. YOu ride her and have her step under like that, arch her neck, with her face forward and in front of the vertical and I will put a gold star on your forhead!!!!
She is a lovely, lovely horse!

she looks like a model horse, gorgeous.
I would say probably english as well

I agree with everyone else. English! She has a great headset especially for dressage. :)

I agree, but not because of headset..that comes with time and balance. But I say english because of pic #2. LOOK, she actually uses her back end!

I agree with english ;)

Being a western rider, I see a western horse in everyone's english horses. I could see her being a good "Western Riding" performance type horse. She does use herself well. Why not both?

Thank you everyone.
She has and will always be all english, we tried western for fun a day at a show! She did very well in it actually:)
Alot of western people at my barn say she should be doing western I just wanted some opinions
