I just bought this mare today. She'd double registered Paint and Pinto. Just wanna know what everyone thinks. I paid $450. She's 11 years old. She was started professionally, as well as 30 days professional Western Pleasure training, and 30 days barrel and pole training. She's also been used as a trail horse. One owner her entire life. She didn't excel in showing, so they didn't think it was fair to keep her and not use her. She was for sale for a year, and only one person came to see her, and they thought she was too tall and muscular for them. There's really no market for white colored horses around here I guess, and they just wanted her to have a good home.

These pictures don't do her justice! She's got beautiful muscle tone, is almost 16hh, and has beautiful movement, extension, and flexability. My trainer thinks she will do good as an English horse, but we plan on doing mostly endurace and gymkana.
Please let me know what you think!
These are the only pictures I have on my computer at the moment, they were sent to me by the owner.
A bit difficult to critique that angle, but quite frankly, I think you got a STEAL of a deal for $450! She's very blatantly a well put together mare, sturdy and stout. Her pasterns are ideal for supporting her big body, and although you can't tell at that angle if her legs are straight, I'm betting from the rest of her they're well put together as well!
There's definitely no conformation fault so glaring I wouldn't have snatched her up for $450 myself! She looks like she'll be an excellent all around horse!
Thank you all so much! I have had a TERRIBLE time trying to find a good horse, so I was of the mind set that she has to be too good to be true. When we went to ride her, they warned us that she hasn't been ridden in over a year and a half. We got stuck in bad traffic and didn't get there till after dark, and it started raining. After driving 3 hours to Madison, WI, we werent about to turn around! We ended up riding her anyway, and were pleasantly surprised! She rode in a loose ring snaffle, neck reined like a dream, w/t/c with no hesitation, and only crow hopped once when there was a sudden flash of lightening. She's a little pushy on the ground a will need a little work with that, but otherwise I think she will be great.
