    Awww...my OTTB gelding was a Forrest Wildcat baby. He is a six year old. He had a wonderful personality because he was very inquisitive. He had a dominant side to him...so he could sense any person or horse who was timid and be a challenge. But he was very smart and very athletic. He is only 15.2hh and built like a QH. Good luck.

    He's cute,but looks smaller than 15.1hh in pics?? His size for his breed is a set back/harder sell ,most people that look at TB's want something taller.Think he is a bit overpriced,will they look at offers? The description sounds like he would suit your needs.You will get a better idea of his training once you try riding him. I know you never rode him when you went to see him,but would have thought they would have shown him to you ridden, at least a little...

    His owner said his price was negotiable, so if I end up making an offer, I'll probably say around 2800, maybe a bit less. I'm still shopping around though
    But I'm a sucker for dark bays and his markings are so perfect...

    I have to ask - WHY didn't you ride him? If it was by choice of the owner and there was some sort of excuse, be wary.

    You said you didn't want to jump or trail ride though & that is what he liked to do, according to the DH ad. Can't imagine anyone not trail riding, though-do you just stay in an areana all the time? Sounds like a nice horse,but might be a little overpriced. I like his size-did he seem calm to you?

    I had the same question! When I thought I was serious about a horse (first day), the owner round penned & rode her, then *I* took her in the pen, rode her in the arena... I even hung out with her after I'd put her back in her paddock! Don't be afraid to really spend your time with him (within respectful limits) unless the owner mentions that they're on a time crunch. Your first horse is a big (and fantastically exciting!) decision!

    She offered to let me, but I had just left work after having a horse get out(chasing the stupid thing) and mucking 30 stalls. I was exhausted and couldn't fathom riding. He was a sweetheart, but he definitely didn't seem drugged. He still had some nice kicks in him in the round pen when she was testing him in different directions.
