Seems that the guy was genuine. The other horse wast..slight over budget at 17k but got to see it being ridden AMD it was amazing. Rode Nero.again and decided it was a yes. My dad filmed me, and was telling someone about my habit of falling off. On the way back home we get a call from the guy saying do we realise the horse is known for bolting andspinning and throws people regularly. So that put the end to that! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e82f...e_gdata_player

I know!!! And I loved him, but I can't deal wwith a horse that spins and bolts for no apparent reason...probably education but I don't have the confidence for it!

He looked so responsive and level in the vids! I hope you find what you are looking for soon.

Hmmm maybe the spinning and bolting, rider error?

That's a shame Sophie, he looked like a nice type and with some good stretching work, lengthening from the wither to built up the base of his neck, he would have come up very nicely!
But you definitely don't want one that bolts and spins. Spighi did it to me a few weeks ago and it scared the bejebus out of me! Have thankfully found some coping methods and alterations in his diet have settled his nerves significantly.
Plenty more fish in the sea, especially in Germany you lucky sod!

Good for you for walking away, no point in buying trouble if you can avoid it.

My guess is the double bridle was to control the bolt and spin. Horse has decent gaits but is NOT a solid second level, and with those issues not worth 17K unless you were a Pro willing to deal with the issues. Might be the behavioral issues are due to pain - and the less he's worked the less pain - hence why he's not as well muscled as he should be?

Just totally guessing here - glad the gentleman was honest with you about this horse. Keep looking and riding other horses - riding "cows" and such will make you a better rider.

Just a small.update!

The old man lied about the bolting. The owner got in touch and explained that he doesn't want her to sell the horse due to him being the breeder/ trainer. All in all he will loose about 300 a month from the owner.
The black horse, Nero, is 3900 with a Stubben dressage saddle and bridle too lol, a different one was 17k, one he was trying to make me buy.

So, a vet check has to be organised, we are going up wi th a trailer and my dad is going to take trailer up and if he passes then he is coming home!

Oh, and the double bridle was used 3 times, and the owner thought it took good pics so that's why they are up!
