    So I am thinking about getting a horse by the name of Hope Riegns. She was raced before and then was going to be pretty much thrown out I am not 100 % sure why I think she was just raced too young and the work was too much and I don't think she was fast enough. A trainer around where I live rescued her and they got her and she was very lame. The people that rescued her pretty much left her to take time to feel better and enjoy being a horse. So she sat for 5 years. So she is 10 right know. She is completely pasture sound and when I looked at her today she did'nt look off or lame at all. What is the chance of her staying sound as a riding horse? She is pretty much going to need retrained but she is sooo calm for a TB. The trainer is letting me work with her and she said if I decide to take her ( that is if she stays sound) then if for some reason she is'nt going to stay sound then the trainer would take her back. I don't think it is something I can't handle. I am going to get her vet checked as well and all the pre purchasing stuff. I just hope it works out because she well make a great horse. I just need to know if you think a horse could come back from a lameness like hers ( I don't think there is any injuries involved )and be able to carry a rider.

    I also do alot of natural horsemanship stuff and I never get on a horse unless we got the solid foundation on ground work. She is just a willing horse and just wants a person to please. I think she is registered in the jockey club and as a appendix as well.

    I would get a vet to check why she's lame, lameness could be a lot of things, but if its nothing permanent, I would go for it. Surprizingly (unlike the stereotype they get because theyre racehorses) a lot of thoroughbreds are quiet and nowhere near hot. Its mostly just all those oats that make them hot at the track.

    She was lame at the time the trainer rescued her, if that is what you call it. She has been sitting for five years and shows no signs of lameness at this time. I am going to for sure get a vet check just to make sure

    Depends on WHY she went lame in the first place. If it was a pulled tendon, then yeah, she should be a-okay. If she went lame because she got a fracture or bone chip, the odds are that she wouldn't.
    What was the initial cause of her lameness?

    The foal in your profile picture, WSArabians, is so unbelievably cute.
