What do you think?

I know there's not much info in this ad, but she sounds like she might be a good match for me:

Adopt a Tennessee Walker: Soda Pop: Petfinder

I wrote to the rescue and they confirmed that she is indeed gaited, she's 12 yrs old, good with beginners and kids, and an all around good horse.

I'm hoping to go check her out on Saturday!!! :)

Not a bad looking mare, if you think she may suit you id go check her out. (I personally like the more stocky horses but that's just me) Congrats on finding one you like keep us posted

She is half Arab, so that might contribute to a different headset than a full TWH. I also usually prefer a stockier/sturdier built horse, but from what they've told me about her personality and training, she sure sounds like a good match.

I'll update after Saturday when I get to visit her... They have another Walker as well, but much younger, I think he's 3 or 4. Not sure I want a less than 10yr old horse, I'd prefer the been-there/done-that mindset over wow-this-is-all-new-and-exciting!

Thanks all! Found another that I am considering checking out as well:

King's Ranch - Taha -REDUCED $900.00 FIRM!!!

Like I said, I am mostly looking for a good recreational horse for fun, not showing. So "dead broke" and "dependable" are things I like to hear!
