The jumps are a little smal to get any idea of form. Over this size she looks a little akward. Decent knees for the jump size, but not really any bascule and the back looks hollow in some pictures. On the bright side, she's actually jump, instead of cantering over the small jumps like most horses :)

I'd try bigger jumps if she seems fine with it, that will give a better idea of form.

i would try some bigger jumps ! =D

also if you put a placement pole 9 feet in front of the jump that will help her find a good distance to take off at.
