Please critique 3 year old filly!!

Hello, I am looking for an honest critique on my little mare. She is three years old and I am guessing a QH/Arab cross?? I am definitely open to other opinions on her breed, as I am inexperienced and only guessing! She has had nothing done with her to build any muscle yet and has just been a "pasture pony" for the couple winter months that I've owned her. I know that the pictures aren't perfect but any honest opinions on her are welcome. I won't love her any less... Just want to know what everyone thinks!! Also, what possible disciplines do you think she would excel at?? Thank you for reading

She is very cute! You could be close to correct on your guess of breed mix. Her body structure is light. Right now she is rump high but that could change as she develops. It looks like maybe she needs a little more heel (in the snow photo she looks a little low). Truthfully it is hard to see faults from your photos as she is not standing square. Personally I don't see anything I'd be concerned about. She sure has a lovely face.
She looks like a nice pleasure mare to me. What is your main interest as far as activity?

I love her colour and she has the sweetest blaze! The photo angles aren't the most telling, but she might be sicklehocked and looks goose rumped.

Thank you both!! I did notice that she is a bit "downhill" but am hoping that it's because she still has more growing to do!?! *fingers crossed* (she's only about 14'2" right now) Do you think that once she has some muscle built up, it might make her goose rump less significant? I am just planning on her being a trail partner! Possibly endurance down the line... I think that Western Dressage might also be fun! Thank you for the welcome and thank you both for your input (even though the pictures really aren't great at all), I appreciate any and all feedback!! Iv'e been reading different forums on here for a long time and I'm excited to finally be able to be a part of the discussions!
