    From personal experience the bigger named the person is the more likely I will get every opinion BUT theirs to make a final choice.

    I was scammed only once and from that moment on I trust no one...especially the ones selling the horse (referring to breeders/trainers or BNR).

    Not all but a lot are the biggest scammers out there.

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.
    They were just giving their advice And the way you wrote that is very immature IMO.
    If you really like Geoffry
    (sp?) get him. :P

    I don't think my trainer, my vet, or Ruthie would scam me. She has found all of our team's horses, and only Gandalf has had leg problems and that is because he hurt himself in the trailer

    Stormy, the only things you said about him was that he has hock problems and a ruffed navicular. What did you expect people to say? If your vet cleared him and you're satisfied, buy him - but when you ask for opinions, give all the information at one time.

    I never asked for opnions. I just said what the x-rays showed

    I know this isn't what you want to hear but I have to agree with iride. I think you'd be better off looking for another horse. I know he's coming from a great barn and terrific trainers but he has the potential to have huge issues. And no vet can garuntee there will be no issues. They very rarely will. They won't.
    If you are happy with the horse then get it, but my opinion is to keep looking.

    I think I'm going with the vet. He hasn't had ANY problems in the last three years and all the x-rays are the same.

    I think you made your mind up a while back .

    Not until yesterday where my vet said that spurs in his hocks and a little ruffing of his nivicular were just coming with his age and him working hard.

    So if the questions about her hocks and NAVICULAR are arising now due to work and age what is she going to be like a year down the road
