I'm looking at buying an OTTB if I can sell my yearling, my budget will be fairly low-ish but I want a quality horse. I'm in contact with a few people who know trainers, just want to know what to look for specifically in an OTTB?
I know the conformational traits that are good for my discipline, and the bloodlines known for producing performers in my discipline. Temperament I'm not hugely fussy on, as long as it's sound and sane I'm happy and I actually like a challenge as long as it's not a problem bolter. Much the same regarding training, I can re-mouth whatever I end up getting no problem (mouthed my filly and her mouth is lovely and soft) and I'm happy to put in bulk groundwork.
Just wondering what specific things YOU look for when you're buying a horse off the track or that's had some re-training.
