    Is this this teaching the horse to rollkur (blue tongue) which they use in dressage? This can cause breathing problems and is also trying to get banned because of how dangerous it can be it can aslo affect his/her conformation and how they perform

    Not that this has anything to do with this thread's purpose, but why did they dye his mane like that? The color isn't on his neck, they just dyed his mane black in sections... very odd.

    I don't know anything about the legality of this, but the horse's body condition is fabulous, looks pretty solid to me from this angle. Of course I can't judge anything from this angle.

    Guys, if the OP wants to do this, I don't think it's in our place to discourage them.

    If it means that much to you then just go do it - don't let the opinions of others on this forum sway you from it. His conformation seems better than a lot of other horse's out there - and just because he may have some flaws on his legs does not mean he is going to make a bad riding partner.

    However, if you want to acquire more, do you plan on breeding?

    BUt I have to ask: What is your experience level? "Rescues" horses often need to be re-educated from an experienced horse person. And just guessing from the picture, that horse may more than likely have a "hard-mouth" which can make it difficult to train the rest of his body, if that makes any sense.

    But anyway, he would sure be a pretty horse to have :)

    Thank you all for your posts. I appreciate them all in their honesty, negative or positive since they are all real concerns and it isn't all rosy owning horses.
    I just wanted to get an idea of what's involved in going on the endeavor from my fellow horse lovers.

    Smguidotti,
    I'm not planning to breed at all, will have at least two so that they have company.

    I'm not a trainer but I've been riding horses of different levels of training from green broke to dead broke over the years. Never trained a horse from scratch though. Will take things slow and try to make it work since there is no trainer in 300 mile radius from my farm.

    Thanks

    It seems to me that you are just planning on purchasing this horse and calling it a rescue. Although the horse is being treated badly, I agree with what someone said earlier that it seems to be in good health and if you buy it, the owner will just use the money to buy more and train more. He is a gorgeous horse, and if you want to have him to collect the breed and give him a better life that's fine, I would just really think about the possibilities you're giving the Trainer for a hefty priced "rescued" horse. From that one horse being removed, more horses will just fill in to take his place

    I like him of course, so flashy and well fit. Sounds like you are going to be in India so it makes sense for you to buy a horse there and why not this one? If it feels like a rescue to you, that's fine too. Everyone I know acts like they 'rescued' their horse, including me, the stories vary from farm hands beating the horses to 'yahoos' jumping on once a year and just being idiots The worst offenses are still in the show ring, what they still do to these horses even for 4H is ridiculous and is rampant. If the horse is in a show ring it shows to me he is probably not irrevocably damaged (ie un-manageable) so a loving home should do him well. Good luck and keep us posted!
