She would make an adorable english pleasure or very low(like 2'-2'3" MAX) hunter. I would not trust those legs for anything strenuous. IMO a horse needing injections at a young-ish(under 15-16) is NOT a sound horse. Also, as I said before I already made that mistake due to lack of knowledge and a little bit of ignorance, and now I have a 20 year old that is only very light riding sound. She has to have a joint supplement or she is dead lame. I am thinking of having her euthed in the fall of this year or next, our winters are hard on her. I will never run a horse with less than stellar legs again, and hers weren't even all that bad. We only ran 5-6 times a year, maybe 7, and only really ran hard from the time she was about 13 to maybe 17. After that I retired her, since her hocks were getting very stiff. This horse is my one in a million horse, and I am losing her way to early because of my ignorance.
