    Green Broke
    An OTTB may one day be a nice hack.. but it usually takes a good lot of time and training.

    I "broke" and trained more than a few horses.. and rescued a few.. and I learned that it takes as much effort to take a good one as one with issues (conformation or soundness). Pick your battles (or training prospects) wisely!
    Ultimately, if a horse has possible soundness issues coupled with conformation issues, you put all the effort in one end and don't get much out the other end. It costs as much to keep and train a good one as a not so good one.. choose good ones.

    And.. remember.. advice is worth what you pay. ;)

    He's cute but NV has nicer horses :) And nicer ones coming.

    I see him as a pleasure mount and and any horse can do the lower levels of anything. Since he did have surgery I'd request his records.

    Have you considered Lisa Molloy Training stables? Home Page

    She used to run the KY NV facility and now has her own barn and brings in horses from 3 different charities. We have 5 NV horses (3 from her when she was there) and 1 Turning for home horse. Turning for home does full diagnostics on their horses, ours had a core lesion and he came with full x-rays, ultrasounds and attending vet contact.
