Horse is pretty enough.

Movement wise it's traveling hollow and pacing like a camel. Did not canter. Saw two slight "bobbles" in the backend. Could have been footing, but I'd carefully check stiffle action.

Horse seems well trained. Saw more "tail wringing" than I like but that might have been more an artifact of poor equitation than a physical issue. Still, it raises a "red flag" and means a careful pre-purchace evaluation (with or without a vet).

Price wise, you've a got $1500 horse with a $4000 asking price. Proceed accordingly.

The movement issue, assuming no physical issues, can be addressed by having the rider get their butt off the cantle and sit up straight. Then teach the horse to move more squarely using the "stair step" method. This can be done by an average owner and need not involve big bucks with a trainer. There probably should be a riding instructor/coach to help keep the rider "centered" as they work on centering the horse. In 90-120 days you could probably have this horse moving pretty squarely.

^^^^The horse is pretty. However, the horse in the video looks to have almost no gaiting ability. With the TWH I once had here my then 12 year old Granddaughter rode him in Western tack and that horse moved out in such an easy to sit, rocking chair movement and had a very decent canter.

I have to agree with everyone else. The horse is very beautiful, but like most Generator horses I have seen, she has a strong inclination to pace. The rider needs to do some better riding and they need to stop allowing her to travel hollow. I wouldn't pay $1500 for her.

Well I tell ya. I went and rode this mare. She reared once with me and once with the trainer. She was not for me at all I think they are putting her back into training after my showing I did end up getting a nice little gelding and am totally pleased. He's a bit pacu but temperament is what I need in a horse mote then gait right now I have been a bit traumatized with my last abused rescue horse. So now I have the total oppisite. Maybe one day I will buy another nice walker but for now the walker I did get is as perfect as they come

Well I'm glad that you finally got something you are pleased with the horse you've got.
