Hi! I am looking into purchasing an OTTB filly if I like her personality and all goes well with her. She is listed at $3000 but the owner has offered her to me for $500. The owner is a family friend. I know that as a 2yo she will fill out considerably till she’s about 6, like most TB.
Honestly, not too worried about showing. I ride hunter/jumper but I just love horses! So if I really like this mare, as he says I will, I’d love to just get her and ride her, perhaps trail rides if she’s calm enough and into it. She will be 3 in about 2 days, and these pics were taken last year. So i’m sure she’s changed a bit. I’m going to see her this weekend so I will get some pics then.

I am a bit unsure of the poultice/wraps on her front legs. Are those something they wear while racing? Or should I be worried? I’m definitely going to ask the owner about them either way!
Her current owner says she’s so calm and well-trained I could ride her blindfolded. I’ll believe it when I see it, but I do think she could be a sweet, calm, rarely spooky horse. We shall see.
Thanks so much for your help! Please be as detailed as you’d like! The more opinions, the better!
