What is your hurry to get this little girl going? She is still a baby and your being evasive with what your doing with her as well. Let her grow, get x-rays of her knees and stop making excuses to why you can't do things the correct and right way the first time.

When you work and break a baby to saddle too young, you are running the risks of problems down the line and as they get older. You will get to face arthritis sooner, joint problems, and other ailments. They can and sometimes do become sour after a while, you may have to deal with other issues with attitude.

Ease back and let her grow some.

I really like this mare. The uphill/downhill thing she will level out with age, but she looks like she is going to be a very nice mover (love her lope), and I really like her face/eyes in the picture.

Just my opinion, but I would maybe do more ground work and leave the riding maybe more towards the end of the year. She really looks like she could be a nice pleasure horse, and I would hate to see her get pushed too soon and then burn out. No judgment on my part, just what I have seen. The slower they are brought along the longer they last. My girl is 11 and she was started slow, goes out on trails, and still enjoys her job at the shows (no tail swishing, ears back, etc.).

Is she yours or are you thinking of buying her? She really looks like a nice mare. My friend has a Lazy Loper mare, and she is awesome. Great mover, great mind.

My guess is that they atleast wanted to aim her at that, if they started her as a 20 month old. I'd be very, very worried about her honestly. If she had been started correctly at a walk and trot, letting her adjust to both of those and learn how to bend into herself and round her back out/push from behind, it wouldn't of been as big of a deal. But if she's been cantering and trotting around like that, I don't know she could not already have spine problems :/

I said I was going to let her grow. I'm not in a hurry. Buying.

She's eligable for futurities. If I get her shell be going to my homestate which no longer has the stallion service auctions in qh or paint. And maybe some others. I was honestly thinking about southern belle, nsba, congress and world, but I want to see her develope.

I asked her about soundness issues and she said she's had none. She says she rides nicely and is currently on a martengale....

Why does she need a martingale?

I realize that you're saying that you'd give her some down time, and that's great. I'm just worried that the damage has already been done. Often soundness issues don't show up for a few years, but that doesn't mean they aren't there. If you do buy her, I'd suggest as complete of a PPE as you can find, by the most knowledgable vet you can get.
