lucky,
i really want a horse, i know almost everything to know about raising a horse, but i just cant afford one right now. i have been riding one and taking lessons on him for free at a really nice barn where i live, but i just really want a horse of my own, cant wait for the economy to turn around so i can get one!

If you want a horse to plod around the countryside then buy him.
If you want to buy a horse to compete then the horse must be 100%, a competition horse is exposed to lots of work / strain and if it isn't 100% it'll break down .

Not to be too blunt but I would have to be barking mad to buy a competition horse that had any physical problems at all ( either that or I would have to know nothing about horses at all ).

He has done Pre-Limb and Intermidiate SUCESSFULLY. 2 Vets, my trainer, AND our racehorse trainer who has NEVER seen this horse EVER, have said that these problems will cause NO problems to him EVER. He has had NO changes AT ALL in THREE YEARS. He has never had joint injections. He is PERFECTLY SOUND. But you guys would know more than two certified and trained vets, a certifed trainer, a three star and four star rider, and a person who trains the most grulingly worked horses in the world right?

And Blue is way to small for me to get anywhere on her. She is 15.1 and I am 5'8". My legs hit her legs in my dressage saddle. And the vids arn't on my camera.

Well to be fair, the riders are trying to sell him.. so of course they'd say that it wouldn't cause a problem. If you believe all of them, then go for it. Doesn't seem like there's a part of you that DOESN'T want him, right?

Oh, that's too bad. She's a lovely horse.

I agree with barefoot - people will say anything to sell a horse. But you know what, the choice is yours - not ours. This is a horse that you will have to ride and take care of daily - not us. I just feel bad for him knowing he's going to be asked to answer these difficult questions with the physical issues he has..........

We are here only trying to help you - there is no need for you to get defensive. We are thinking about the horse too and his wellbeing.

No acctaully, I have and never will meet his owner, never met Buck, the only person that showed me the horse was Ralph Hill, and Ruthie who is training him at the moment
And Blue isn't getting sold. I'm still going to do hunters on her to make sure she has a job, and my little bother is learning on her
