Hello! I've been pouring over these boards and learning so much and refreshing my knowledge, so thanks for all the help
So, I had a horse growing up (spirited/hot) TB/QH, took lessons, etc...but haven't had a horse since I moved away from home well over a decade ago. I have a nine year old daughter who has been taking lessons since about age five. We just recently moved to a house where we can keep a horse. A very experienced horse person lives on the property and we also have access to the trainer who my daughter takes lessons from. I basically want a trail/WP horse. I'm not interested in anything competitive. I am a horse enthusiast/lover and its how I want to enjoy my free time.
The horse we are looking at was rescued from a guy who was over breeding broodmares hoping to produce racers. He had about a dozen neglected mares and some foals. The horse we are considering was his personal horse so she was actually the best taken care of and ridden the most. Here are her stats:
12 yr old registered TB (Minstrel was her grandfather so she has Northern Dancer in her bloodline)
She has very nice groundmanners and a sweet temperment.
I don't know how many foals she has produced...
Basically, I'm interested in all your opinions as for her conformation as a western pleasure and trail horse. To my rusty and untrained eye I don't see any glaring faults. But definitely don't trust my own opinion! Haha
