    Thanks MIEventer and eventerdrew! :)

    I have to agree with what MIEventer said!
    You should have searched for a horse that wouldn't have problems and researched.
    Sure he is pretty and nice to look but he does seem to need a more experienced rider and jumping him when he has Navicular and hock problems seems very unfair to him.

    Like I said before I have seen this person with Buck on him at Buck's farm in Ocala. My impression of him was that he had an ok jump...when he decided not to dirty stop. Buck fell off of him trying to school over a training sized fence, hence the reason the owner brough him to Buck in the first place

    ...What is a dirty stop?

    When the horse stops just at the base of the fence, even when the rider has not only set up the horse properly, but rode the horse solidly through seat, lower leg, upper body, hands.

    Here is an example. This rider has a beautiful solid seat, secure lower leg, wonderful upper body - no reason to create the horse to refuse - but yet the horse still refuses.

    A dirty stop is that 1% where the horse is to blame. Rarely happens, 99% is rider error.

    Buck Davidson is a very competant rider, and if Westood Warrier did this to him, he'll do it to his new owner as well.

    Well all I can say is I really hope it works out for the OP, unfortunately from all the info I think this will not work out and she will be stuck with a horse that was not really right for her. I am surprised with the coach, etc helping that this happened. I am so hoping that we are all wrong and it all works out. However the market is just so full of wonderful horses at reasonable prices this seems like a compromise that was not necessary.

    Finding a new horse is really tough there are so many variables. If someone on a forum had first hand knowledge of a horse I was going to buy I would certainly be listening. Just saying :)

    Having said all the best of luck to you prove us wrong and let us know how he is doing.

    I'm interested to know how it is going with the new horse.

    If I followed this correctly, the horse gets to her today.
