    Possible purchase critique?


    I am still looking at everything that meets my basic criteria for a purchase, and I came across this boy on CL of all places!

    I truly do not know any more about him than what is listed in the ad, but I have contacted the owner for additional information.

    Would anyone be willing to look at the photos present and provide a quick critique of the basics, given what is able to be seen in these photos?

    For those not aware, I'm looking for a pleasure horse, to do basic riding, English, with possible small jumping and much trail work that would likely include small natural obstacles, and just a horse to love and enjoy riding, whilst improving my skills and his, as well! I do not ever plan to show, so that is not a consideration in terms of "quality"...

    Thank you in advance for any critiques offered! :0)

    Almost impossible to say anything based on those photos.

    Neck is set low, legs look nice and sturdy, and that's about all I can tell.

    All the pictures in the world wont tell you much. You are looking for a riding horse, only way to judge that is to ride him. Go ride him then get a vet pre purchase exam.

    Absolutely...PPE is the ONLY WAY for anal retentives such as myself! :0)

    I hope to hear back from his owners today about his additional info, and schedule a first ride if all seems within normal limits! Thanks! :0)

    $1000 for a 7year old pretty riding gelding sounds awful cheap. Did you get to meet him?

    No, actually, his owners haven't gotten back to me yet, so perhaps they aren't super motivated to sell? We'll see, but I think that's about the going rate in this area for basic riding (non-show quality/specific training level) horses-- $1000-$3000 max for basic horses, and the more the owners are in financial crisis, as horribly, MANY, MANY FOLKS in this area, especially are (due to so many illegals taking the horse-related jobs that lots of horse people have counted on for income).

    I like him. Definitely worth a look-see.

    As far as his conformation, he looks Appendix to me, or at least has TB in him not too far back. Maybe not, but he sure looks like it to me...
