Although she is pretty...i agree and would not do the will get attatched and end up buying her regardless of her faults...she does have a long back for a QH...and at such a young age...I wonder just what kind of riding has been done with her? I would pass...there are many out there that you will love that have better confo. And just as good a temperment.

Alright thanks a lot for helping me out here. I found her ad again and theres come more pictures on it, just incase any of you wanted more pictures. They still aren't good confo pictures, but more of an idea. 4 1/2 year old smart, would be great for barrels for sale in :: HorseClicks

I don't think the owner has a clue....

I'm still not a fan, in a few of those pictures she looks wormy.. and I honestly think you could find something better with a little more looking. I wouldn't pay as much as they want for a coming 5 year old grade mare who already looks like she's carrying back problems and has other conformation flaws...I'm not saying you have to find something with perfect conformation but you can really, really do better if you're looking for a barrel prospect. There are a TON of young prospects out there..

I think SH means that the owner isn't very experienced and doesn't have a whole lot of knowledge when it comes to barrel horses in general..The owner hasn't provided very good information or pictures in her sale ad. For someone who is serious about selling a good horse will have a much better for sale ad.

I get where you're coming from. I also would have cancelled the trial, but we have it set up and everything, so I can't turn back from that. Right when I get her to my barn, my vet is going to do a vert check on her, the first sign of any problem now, or in the future, I'm not going to be buying her. Even though her conformation has faults, which is expected, her ride is amazing. The pictures her back does look like its starting to sway, but when I went to check her out it seemed at a good level. The picture I took when I went to see her, her back was like any other horses. But I am still taking in your guy's advice, getting a check on her back is the best thing right now.

I think you've already set your mind and heart on her..You've already began to over look her flaws and making excuses for things...I understand and I've caught myself doing the same thing on a horse that I really liked but I just had to take a step back and look at it from other's perspective.

And you can ALWAYS cancel a trial on a horse..She isn't yours yet, you haven't handed the owner any money, and she isn't at your place yet..You can find better.

Even if she's sound now she won't be for long.

I seriously doubt a horse built like that is all that great of a ride,
Just sayin'
