Hm... For some odd reason I thought they'd given me more information on his lines but I guess not, I'll send an email and ask about that though!

So what I've gathered so far is that he's six years old, only raced a couple of times but wasn't wasn't enough for it. Schooled to 3'6, showed at a more local level to 2'9, etcetc. The thing that bothers me is that they said he needs an experienced rider as he can get nervous... I don't want to overanalyse as they said he's gotten better and I presume it's because he's young. He seems to have decent form but his knees are a little iffy.

This so isn't the right place for this and I hadn't meant for this to turn into an opinions thread, but oh well, let it merge, I've posted way too many of those lately.

im sure he gets nervous - schooling 3'6" as a six year old?! though i guess it depends on how often he's done that much.
do you know his sire/dam?

Do you know what his racing name was?

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

They said he has schooled 3'6, which in my experience means once or twice but you never know!
And that's what I meant, needs a bit of work but lots of potential, which is good. I'm just so nervous we've been in the market for a little while and have seen lots of crazies lately. I'll ask tonight about lines and parents, etcetc and post that up here as well.

MyBoyPuck no I don't.
I thought they'd mentioned it and I wouldn't have posted this if I knew they hadn't but hopefully tonight we'll get all that sorted!

Goodness you all reply quickly.

If you can get the racing name, you can look it up at thoroughbred query and see who his parents are.

I hear ya. Me brain don't work good now too. As of today, I officially finished 6 longs months of being insanely busy at work. From tonight until sometime in late August, I get to stop thinking and just concentrate on my horsey!!

OP, I'm hoping that horse had good lines. He's really cute.
