Definately not a eventer prospect. Your going to have issues. Keep looking.
whats your price range and what state are you in?
I'm in TN and looking for something under $1000. I'm willing to travel to surrounding states for the right horse.

I really liked the rest of him but as soon as she sent me those pictures, I knew it wasn't a good thing. The first pictures, I tried to say, maybe it's something with the way he's standing but clearly I was just trying to convince myself I'd found the horse. Back to searching!

I have looked at some OTTB's. My trainer actually events on one and I've ridden a few. Thanks for the suggestion! I'll have to look at canter again. It's been a while since I last checked them out.

Caitlin, my gelding is off the track and you wouldn't know it looking at him, once he got the drugs out of his system he was as sweet and obedient as can be! You should definitely consider getting an OTTB! :)

Here's another gelding in kentucky. Don't know how you feel about greys, some people seem to just not like them, although I do, but I think he's a decent horse. Most of the tb's on Canter looked very light in bone, or were also over at the knee, though...

I personally think his price is high.....he is older, and by the time you train, he is a cribber. That would make him a no go for me......It is early in the season tho-Canter is always getting new horses, at least here in the east.

Yikes. Worst front legs I've seen. Poor guy. Maybe someone can get some great farrier work and keep him sound for a trail or pleasure horse but yowza, would never put him to a jump based on these photos.

I actually didn't read that... Oops, lol. I was kind of excited to find one on there that didn't have either no bone or really strange legs.

I LOVE that TB mare from canter... she has awesome bone in her legs for a thoroughbred.

The pastern angles on that first horse made my heart stop. I'm kinda surprised he's walking. Lol
