Went and looked at this mare the other day while I was on a trip out of state.
Coming 8 years old, been leased, been a lesson horse, been used by a team member on a college equestrian team.
Original owner, came off the track at age 3 sound.
Does dressage (not that I would know anything about that...
) and has hunter/jumper training. O now does stock horses and this mare is the last of her hunters. She was at a training barn, being used in a lesson program, and she just came home a couple weeks ago (shes been for sale for awhile tho, but the barn she was at was too far away for me to go look), and she's....SKINNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNY.
I have no one horse savvy to take with me when I try a horse, so instead it was just my dad, sitting there, and later insisting that something must be wrong with her, she's so thin. No comments on her movement, ect. I did take pics tho. Didn't go over any jumps (I've only done flatwork, need something to move up on, that knows what it's doing). She was very honest on the flat, not pushy, pretty much a doll with a really nice trot and canter.
I need more experienced eyes....What do you think of her conformation, etc etc. 003.jpg006.jpg007.jpg 010.jpg014.jpg020.jpg
Ignoring the troll in the red shirt with really bad position and short stirrups
She also has a "dead nerve" in her tailhead, so she doesnt "swish" it.
Video of her jumping a few months ago: http://
