I think she has a short upper arm and a short croup. She could also use tighter feet and stronger pasterns.

Croup would be from the point of the hips to the tail head.

The stack is not good...(sorry) The back of the front legs need to be straight underneath at a 90 degree angle from the ground. That would then show her correct angle of the pasterns and the shoulder. Much easier to critique then.

Anyway, goodluck with her.

I could be wrong, it could be the size of the saddle, but she looks a bit overweight to me for her frame and bone.

I guess it was just the big saddle. She looks really shiny and healthy up close
I am sure she is really special to you.

What does being tall have to do with looking heavy?? I've seen many tall skinny dogs.

And yes, she does have a short upper arm and a loose neck. She's very square, with little angulation.

If you want a serious critque and would not get offended....take her to a show handler and have them evaluate her......
