I would just change the stipulation that she has 1st right of refusal if you decide to sell the horse.

If you buy this horse with those restrictions, make sure you get the exact reasons she can take the horse back in the contract. With it written the way it is she could in fact buy him back if you smack him and she doesn't like it. Make the contract as specific as possible. She may be your friend but you just never know what friends will do on down the line. Some of the threads under horse law illustrate that perfectly.

I completely understand about the contract. I plan on revising it and making it more detailed if she already has one written up (I think she has 1st refusal for all the horses she sells).
And I know about the friend's thing, it's happened to me before. It was bad without worrying I was going to have my horse evicted/bought back, I definitely don't want to go down that road again with the horse issues on top of it.
I'm glad I'm actually getting some feedback on this whole situation, it gives me something to think about from different views while I'm doing nothing in school. :p If I don't find a for sure boarding arrangment I can afford, I will call the seller back and tell her that I cannot find an affordable (or worth the amount of money) place to board, and therefore cannot buy the horse from her. I'd feel bad about it and be sad (for lack of better vocabulary), but if I can't take care of the horse to my standards, I just won't be able to have one until I can. Which I understand, and I will not lower my own standards for a partner I'll be sitting on everyday, lol.

I am glad you are considering all of this.
If you buy this horse, make sure there are No stipulations. The only one I would consider would be the right of first refusal, but sorry, she doesn't get to name the price. I wouldn't sign a contract about it either. I would offer it as a courtesy, but if she moves or goes on vacation where I can't find her, sorry. Once you sell something, you give up all of your rights toward it.
Regardless, I hope it all works out for you. :)

Another issue with first right of refusal - how hard do you have to try to track her down if you decide to sell? If you own the horse 15 years, and haven't talked to her in 10 of those years, and she's moved three times during that period, and gotten remarried and has a new last name... you get the idea.
You don't want to give up finding her, sell the horse to someone else, and then have her find you and say you didn't have a right to sell it without coming to her first.

Personally, I would never buy a horse with any stipulations attached. But if you're going to, make sure ALL the details are well understood and written down.
