Good luck, just a thought here, can you take him on trial if he vet's OK?

You were quick to believe that he was a bolter when the guy told you, you are quick to believe the owner when she says he is lying.

My thought, I was always suspicious of the guys motives, but of you don't know any of these people, who knows who is telling the truth, so proceed with caution.

Unfortunately I can't, I already asked for an 8 week grace period in case he bolts, however there have been a few going ons and too long to write it in here, however my trainer is confident we will be able to work with him if it does.

But contracts and laws out here are super! If within 6 months or however long a contract states unknown behaviours, illnesses etc emerge the horse I'd returned, and I have un writing that he doesn't bolt.

So, you are going to try to buy Nero? He looked pretty solid under that guy, & of course he has motives-he'll lose the board on Nero, obviously a horse he likes, & he has another one that he could make a lot of money on. Nero, w/saddle & tack seems like a very good buy & did he feel at all squirrely while you were riding him?

Watched the video of you riding him-you both seemed relaxed & doing well together. Hope the vet check goes well & your search is over.

Well I found out the owner pays 800 a month for stable and training minimum through sources. It may well be over1000. So the old man is losing money. Vet check is tomorrow afternoon at some point I think it will go fine if they are being honest about his complete lack of health issues.

Not once did he feel like he was going to take me does spin and I am super nervous riding unknown horses and I won't canter unless I feel safe and out of riding maybe20 or so horses before Duffy and before Nero there are probably only5 that I have connected with enough to canter. We will have to see what happens! I am taking a copy of contract with me in case they magically forget, and cash to pay the vet and the money for Nero and closer it all up there and then rather than a bank transfer and papers getting sent and lost in the post!

Good luck with the get check!

I must admit, Sophie, that I am completely confused. The trainer/breeder doesn't want the owner to sell the horse so he lied to you about the horse being a bolter? But the owner contacted you and said the horse is fine, the trainer was lying? So weird!

If I have a horse with a trainer to sell (and I have done, as I left the country and hired a trainer to continue to work with and sell my four-year old), I prefer the trainer to be honest with potential buyers about the horse's issues or lack thereof.

Due to the interfering old man, the horse has been sold from underneath me to the loanees.

Anger doesn't even cover what I am feeling right now. Too long for on here, I should write a book on it, but he made it so I couldn't buy the horse.

Dude, that sucks. But as I said in my other post, the whole business sounded bizarre. Maybe you're best out of it. It looks as if Germany is full of nice warmbloods so you will hopefully find something else soon.

There's a lot to be said for a straightforward transaction. Someone wants to find their horse a nice home, you are a nice home, done. There were funky, complicated politics surrounding our purchase of my very first horse and while I got the horse, it was just rubbish, really, and if we'd been psychic and known it was going to go like that, my parents (I was 13) probably would have insisted that we keep looking. In that case, the horse was sold to us from underneath someone else, but we were not aware of this until it was too late. I remember well that my mother, who is a very ethical, above-board person, was raging when she found out what the seller had done. On the other hand, the next two horses down the line were a piece of cake to buy -- their sellers were honest and straight-dealing -- and reaffirmed my view that if it seems fishy, run away, because buying a horse doesn't have to be a stressful, horrible morass.
