Doesn't have the best conformation, but not the worst either. Wouldn't expect her to do GREAT big things, but looks good enough for a kid.
Just a few things:
- "ridden by a 9 year old girl" doesn't really mean anything unless you know the girl's history - did she start riding before she could walk, or did she just recently start riding?
- The mare is bred - do you really want to deal with a foal? I certainly wouldn't want to buy a mare in foal for my daughter (when I have one haha). Miracle of birth or not, kids that young don't understand that they can't ride their pony for a couple months AT LEAST and otherwise need special care and attention until weaning.. and what if something happens?
- Will she be showing in any certain discipline? If it's hunter or dressage, a paint-colored pony can be either an asset, or your downfall... judges seem to either love 'em or hate 'em.
Just a few points I thought I'd bring up. She is very cute and I would consider her for a training/breeding program, or to add to a school, but not as an 8 year old's first pony, I don't think. She is 11, so should be quiet enough for a kid, but there are some factors that I don't like about her.
Best of luck deciding!
