I am looking at a 9 year old Quarter Horse mare. I will be going to see her Friday hopefully. She has been running barrels and poles at local races. A few recent times on the barrels were 16.8, 16.9, and 17.0. Here is part of her description:
She was started by Barbra Hodges and Flint lee for cutting and reining competed once. Then sat for a few years. I trail rode her for a year, then started we on barrels spring of 2010, she's running 2D-3D times (19s on a larger pattern) then started her on poles spring of 2011 she's running 1D-3D times. She also loves to go swimming, carries a flag, move things on her, ride double, trails, camps, right now I have a girl whose only been riding for a year on her and she listens to her and runs the same pattern everytime. She doesn't have I be consistently rode. Just pulled he out warm her up and your good to go!
Here is a recent picture as well:
They are asking $7500. I am wondering what you guys think about her and the price. I am not sure how much negotiating room I would have if I do decide to make an offer. Any opinions are greatly appreciated!
