Like, dislikes? She's speed bred and I've had luck with her lines.

She looks like she's got a long back. I'm not a huge fan of how she's carrying herself.

She has too many faults to overcome. Somethings you can work with but I would pass on this horse if I were looking to purchase.

 I like her hip, and her long underline tells me she has speed.  Not a fan of the shoulder and how the neck ties in though.

I think every horse in the world has their pro's and con's! One year when I qualified for state in the number one slot...I ran second every single race to the same horse...I went to go look at this horse, thinking it was going to be drop dead gorgeous. The horse had some of the worst conformation that I have ever seen! Just plain...not good looking. To me, I think everyone has sort of a different opinion on their style of conformation. But I just need to be attracted to the horse. I'm attracted to a different style of horse than most of my friends. I would say if you're attracted to a horse, go for it. A super successful racehorse named Real Quiet was so knock kneed, you couldn't find your hand between his legs, but he was a hell of a runner! I'm not a huge fan of this horse, but I think it's a matter of what you like, as long as it doesn't effect soundness =]

I think she has faults, but looks pretty athletic too. If she rode good and was a good mover I would take a chance on her for the right price. Only as a riding horse. Would not try to turn her into a broodmare at any time. :)

 Actually, she has alot of really nice things about her and she looks like she could absolutely fly but they get lost in the way she is standing. She's standing all bunched up. Her back isnt long, she has an incredably long underline. She's not back at the knee, her front feet are way underneith her because she's all bunched up. Move her front legs forward about a foot so her legs are square underneith her and she's a nice filly. Sorry your pics are so decieving. She's nice. Maybe re-take her pics and you would get a completely different set of answeres.

I like her, nice nice hip, nice shoulder beautiful face and nice head and neck, strong looking chest with nice muscles, I dont see nothing wrong with her knees, shes just not standing right, get her squared up and I bet she will look better, the only thing I would change about her is a tad shorter back, but I would take her like she is now. 
Whats her breeding? Wish she was closer to me I would be looking at her myself

I agree with everything Three Corners said, too. No doubt she can run. I like this filly.

As a three-year-old she has a lot of filling out to do.  Most of us can't afford" perfect" horses and I see things to like.  I like the way she stands under herself because it means she can probably get that rear end underneath herself when she needs to.  A long-backed horse may be considered a fault but they're usually very smooth riding. She'll present a different picture in a year or two.

Nice tailset, big shoulder, good withers.  Might be a struggle getting that headset where it's supposed to be. Never can tell.

Me personally and I'm no expert but I LOVE her hip, low tail set, and long underline with the shorter back (her back isn't that long to me). She looks like she will have a heck of a stride on her, her hocks do look like they're set to far under (forward) she's not balanced in the back but she looks like she will be able to get under herself just fine. I don't like how her neck ties into her shoulder, she does have a nice strong shoulder and front end, I don't like her neck at all though or how it ties into the throat latch either, looks like it will be harder for her to stay collected? Correct me if I'm wrong..... but it wouldn't deter me from purchasing her, especially if she had a nice set of papers.
