My Aunt's New Mare

Looking for outside opinions, I have some ideas, but am looking for a different eye on her. Couldn't get a good squared off picture because she was fussing, but I included an action shot, for all it's worth. Registered Standardbred, Echonomical, "Echo". She's flat work sound, but won't be doing any strenuous stuff.

Pictures taken where you shoot flat and level to the horse are more realistic for assessment....
She is stout boned....
Her "moving" picture shows much promise.
Bet she is pretty when shed out and sleek...
Other than that with the angle of camera taking the picture to me making any comment would be wrong of critical critique.... yes, my opinion.
The horse is wacky looking and it isn't the horse but the angle taken....

The worst day is instantly better when shared with my horse.....

Yeah, I tried but she's not had a ton of manners put on her (off track and then a failed broodmare for a few years). I would ask my aunt to get better pictures but she has no clue what a conformation shot should look like either. Thank you!

The pictures themself are not bad but the tilted angle looking up not level at the horse is what makes them difficult to make comment on.
She should be looking straight across not with camera lens tilted up but level, parallel with the ground.
A solid background, level ground also helps to not trick the eye.

From what I can see the horse looks nice.....
