    I have a friend that got her mate from New Vocations. If you're really interested in #3 I can put you in touch with her. She loves her mare to death and to my knowledge had no issues.

    Too true though it sounds like at least some of them on that site have a good start "retraining" Some have been shown already as well. There are also often Standardbred horses with quite a bit of trail experience through New Vocations as well.

    I have never been as attracted to standardbreds for their looks but generally, they are pretty rock solid in their temperaments. I must add, that of course, each one is an individual and there is no hard and fast rule.

    I have seen some Quarter doing English and looking pretty darn good doing it! Since they are all around, They are always a good choice :)

    I'm a sucker for thoroughbreds so naturally I'm going to say I really like the 3rd one, and for a 2yo she looks very matured. I read on the ad that she is broken in, and going quietly so that is a good start. I like that she has a kind eye, and a nice straigh vertical through her shoulder to her fetlock. She also looks to have a strong shoulder and hindquarters. The only other thing I can see, is from the angle of the photos, she may have a slightly longer back than it appears, as the photos look to have been taken from slightly behind and not straight on to her side if that makes sense.

    I actually would be checking that they have proof that she is 2, because I don't know many 2yo's with a tail that long and thick, isn't bum high atleast a little bit, and has that big of a "dent" behind her eyes. She doesn't look 2yo to me, but that's just me, maybe I'm naiive

    This all depends on your experience as a horse owner of course, how experienced are you, or are you just starting out?
