    Worth it?

    As you know, Dubai had the misfortune of a compact injury at foal age, hence why he was gifted to my trainer. At his age and height, he was too small and too much for my dad to ride.

    Both my dad and I are sorely missing riding. I keep an eye out on the market.

    Just had a bit of a cold rush.

    Saw this fella, D lines; what else? Weight carrier, good height, age is younger than I would have looked at.. but it says he is well ridden and solid in all three gaits and good to hack which is a big part.

    It goes on. His name is Dobby. Dubai's stable name. That made me catch my breath.

    But anyways. He is between 2500-3000€.

    There is one video in trot, and there are more if you ask.. should I ask.. or is it a silly idea?

    I did a bit of snooping, found some more videos but are really bad quality, and from that her username.. which is her real name so FBd. Turns out she's 'Merican. So emailed in English.

    We will see...

    So, horse currently has an absess and a sand crack. Vet is out today.

    Why you would advertise a horse with these things still going I have no idea.

    And then we get to the cheap reason ;) He has had bone chips, but they were removed early last year.. would you buy a horse that had previously had chips??

    I'd be reluctant to buy a five year old who has already had all these problems. Buying any horse is always a risk soundness wise, and knowing the horse has had hoof and joint issues already, I wouldn't risk it.

    Depends on where the chips were and how the surgeries went.

    I like his lines and he looks like a cool customer.
    For the price you can afford to thoroughly vet him.

    My big question would be how he got the bone chips, I think. I mean, Dressage is a tough discipline, but it's not exactly high impact like racing or jumping...places where bone chips are more common due to the extreme stress on the joints/bones.

    Did they happen during the course of normal riding or did he suffer injury after falling/playing/getting kicked in the paddock or what?

    I have asked for more details, but not getting my hopes up. We spent 8 years and over 10k on my dads mare with navicular. Do I want to take on something that is high risk again? I dunno. I like him, and I will wait for the response... Just have to see about that and if he would be suitable for my pops too!
