    Yes, the first horse is definetley a pass-you already see her faults. The second horse looks much better & she has more of the training you are looking for. The price sounds good-but you are new at this job-maybe getting a reserve fund built up for emergencies, first, would be a good thing.

    There's a 17hh 6yo TB gelding I also emailed on that I just got sent pics of. If I wasn't on my Droid, I would put them up. I like him almost as much as I like that second mare. He's listed at $500, I believe. Has been started jumping a little, but has mainly been a trail horse. He reminds me of my friend's OTTB she rescued to be her boyfriend's horse, just with better confo. I always loved that horse.

    Cacowgirl, if the powers that be (aka-my sales manager) are to be believed, we get $2000 plus commission every month, and commission is paid every check. Most of what I have heard supports that, but there's one person who insists it's straight commission. As I said, if you ask the managers, they dodge the question better than Superman can dodge bullets.

    There is something way off with the first horses back foot maybe club footed.

    For what you want I'd take the second horse hands down. Me personally for what I want, trails and some arena work, I'd take the first biggo ugly mare in a heart beat. I know I'm weird LOL

    Lol, would an 18 hand horse be a comfortable ride for trails? I've always ridden 14-15 hand horses, and still got smacked in the face with branches...

    Another part of wanting a bigger horse for trails is that I have guy friends who are taller and not lean that wouldn't be comfortable on a short, lighter horse.

    Have you had your trainer look at the one you are thinking of buying? Suggestion. If you are looking to learn to jump, Have you thought of leasing from someone nearby? Reason, she's got a big jump to learn on.

    Btw. With more weight and muscle development, that first mare might not look so bad, just saying.

    There aren't many horses for lease in my area and the ones that are around here tend to be older trail horses that their owners just can't bear to part with, but don't have time for. Jumping is not a big thing in this small, primarily ranching community. That first mare is four-ish hours away from me and Tiara is about 2.5 hours away.
