Looking at a TWH this week end

Just want you opinion on what you think of her
I will be using her for a trail horse but she has been shown



"Beautiful chestnut mare by Seve X A Jazz Man mare - many world champions on her papers - has been pleasure ridden and shown in 2 year old performance classes - 2007 Southwest Walking Horse Futurity Amateur Walking Yearling Champion and Southwest Walking Horse Futurity 2 Year Old Champion - a safe mount for most anyone - 15 hands - easy to work with - foaled 03/28/2006."

Confo shots would be good... but I like her! Never been a fan of TWH, though I can't say I dislike them. She certainly knows her gaits! And even if you plan on just using her for trails, atleast you know she's done something and has a good value, if for possible breeding in the future. She's also young & appears quite alert & responsive in her vidoes, though maybe a little impatient but that's not always a bad thing & will come with age ;)
How much are they asking?

Personally, I hope you do get her and save her from the world of TWH showing. I watch the horse moving in the show and I cannot help but think that that way of going; with the big shoes on and such is really hard on the body of the horse. Very unnatural and especially for a 2 year old, whose body hasn't even stopped growing yet.
She is cute and looks green for a trail horse, but I bet you can make her a good one.

Certainly growing into herself!

She's cute, but GET A VET CHECK. There's almost no way she doesn't end up with medical problems after what they put her through as a two-year-old. It's just a question of how serious they are and when they show up.

Also, be prepared to do a lot of gait training. If this is your first gaited horse, you'll need a trainer. She's pacing really badly in the beginning of the second video. Big lick TWHs are bred to be pacey because pacey horses do a better running walk with pads on. But when you take the pads off, they pace.

Pacing is bumpy to ride unless you keep them very slow. It still rocks you side to side, though, which doesn't bother some people but some people hate (me included!). Pacing is bad for their bodies and shouldn't be encouraged : )

With pacing? Back problems from carrying herself in a very hollow position and possibly leg problems. You'd be looking at a lot of chiropractic bills and joint supplements/injections.

Anyone else realize that the horse in the show has no leg markings, while the horse on trail has a stocking?
