The lighting is terrible and the reflection of her eyelashes over the dark spot makes it look like all that's there is a reflection. However in reality there is a very visible pupil like spot on one side and her other eye its more faint but still there. I'll try and get better pictures.

That is completely normal. It's the corpora nigra. It's the horses built in sun shade so to speak. The Equine Eye: What Horse Owners Should Know - Thal Equine LLC | Thal Equine LLC
It is above the pupil however none of my other horses have such and neither do any of my friends horses.

I can't tell for sure from your pictures, but I think that NdAppy is correct that it is the corpora nigra. It does not really show on a lot of horses, but due to the lack of pigmentation, it shows well on your horse. I have six horses, and only one has a noticeable corpora nigra.

Carpe Diem!

It is really quite high above the Corpora Nigra, which leads me to think it is not the Corpora Nigra, however as Shoebox mentioned Polycoria is a factor. I'm not say its impossible that it isn't the Corpora Nigra. I will keep looking up different things. With all the suggestions you have all given me I have a lot of researching I can do to see if I can pin-point exactly what it is.

there is a bit of a glare on the photo, but it just may be a lot darker pigment in that blue eye.
there is some darker pigment running down from the iris, but not as dark.
I have seen some horses with brown and blue on the same eye and it is really quite strange appearing. Neat but strange.
And its odd, but I notice the copra negra on all my horses, they all have the 'little mountains' in thier eyes

The photos don't work for me...?

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.
