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.

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'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

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.

"Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse I love you
Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense
Never let your prayin knees get lazy
And love like crazy"

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.

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
