But she also has a really high headset; hence the martingale in the riding pictures :) But she does tuck nicely on the lunge line. She's also a nice mover. She does look like she gets distracted easily--obviously high-spirited! Also note the repeated pulling on the lead to keep her from walking ahead.
If you would like a get-up-and-go horse and have fun with her, I'd say go for it :)
She has a longer back, which an make for a smoother ride, but also prone to swayback.
Also, she has very white feet. I wouldn't be surprised if they did have a crack in them, and she would require a lot of careful attention to her hooves.
I'd be willing to bet the low price is because people expect a more mature, calmer horse by 16 years, and she, like they said, needs an experienced confident rider who wants a lot of energy :)
