So, long story short the last horse I was to buy ended up not working out so here is my potential buy (to be).
I went and saw him today and ended up putting a down payment on him but wanted to know everyones opinion. The for sale pictures are NOT that great. Not sure if the english saddle makes his back look awkward, or what. Also, he looks older than 12 to me, but he is registered so I have no clue. He is very much so lacking muscle so that could be to blame for his awkward looking body. Also, his tail is in such an odd spot for his body.
Anyway, here he is! He is trained in WP but not sure if it was me, or him but he didnt really seem to respond as much to neck reining as he did to leg aids.
Also- in his ad it says he loads. Well, after we put the down payment down I was told he neds 'patience' when being loaded. I asked what he does and she said he just needs some coaxing and he goes on but being he isnt loaded very often this is why he does this...ugh. My worst nightmare is horses who don't load! Hopefully he isnt so bad. Apparently though, every summer he is trailered to her trainers to be used and ridden then trailered back but who knows. Even her trainer said on the phone that he needs patience being loaded. I have plans for showing next summer so the loading issue will definitely have to be solved beforehand if he's really that bad! (crossing fingers he's not)
