Unfortunately it is only me to go but I have spent many long hours on the road before on my own and actually enjoy the quiet and solitude at times. Plus when it will be a fun trip like this, well....:) If the trainer has someone who is relatively vid savvy I will hand over the camera. I am not one , however, to overhorse myself. If I have an uncomfortable feeling when I mount, I trust my gut instinct. The very first time I rode my last horse, on a whim no less, I felt like I had been riding him for years.

I'll be leaving on the 14th with the meeting scheduled for sometime on the 15th..we don't have a time as yet. The 12 yr old mare is about 3.5 hours away form the gelding so am trying to set up a meet there. The owner, though, has suddenly gone silent on me. We had over six e-mails over a period of four days and now she is not only not answering e-mails but hasn't answered the phone or returned two phone calls over the last three days (I didn't call on the fourth). May have to give up on seeing the mare if I don't hear back but I would hope she would have told me if the mare had sold given that she knew my level of interest. Hopefully all is OK with her though and yes, I do feel like a pest right now :)

Here's a 5 y o mare in Middleburg, asking $18000. It is, of course, Middleburg, so tack on the extra 3K She's green but rather nice. Video for Horse ID: 1878237

You have to wonder about a horse called Pandemonium...especially a mare :); sounds like TNT in the making. Nice mare but well above what I can afford.

Re: the mare: maybe the trainer is just extraordinarily busy - since its show season, she may not know what time zone she's in on weekends Just wait and if she doesn't get back to you by Wed., shoot her an email telling her of your trip to her area (of sorts) and which days you would have free to see the mare. If she's serious about selling, she will know you're a serious buyer. Sellers do hate tire kickers, and many aren't terribly forthcoming with much info other than basics, preferring you to come and see for yourself. Though if I were selling, I'd want to weed out bad fits by phone and email rather than wasting both my time and the buyer's.

Re:Pandemonium--she looks more like a big ole Panda--3 on temperament. I gave only the vid page - here's the whole page, just for ref's. As my Brooklyn-born Granny used to say, "Ya neva know..."

Here's a 16.3 12 y o Selle Francais G, $13,500 in Bucks Co. Claims and is pictured w/a blue ribbon but nothing under his name on CLS. Big, striking color, cute, quiet. Video is less than enthralling - almost slow-mo, and canter gets 4 beat, but the few more forward strides show an improvement. I'm liking Striker more, seeing whats out there for the price.

I just love the big boys:) Lovely hunter rider showing him in the vid, and yeah he's on the forehand but he has 3 decent gaits. Most impressive to me is that his very petite rider apparently needs only a small grooming box to mount him
