You may get a great athlete at a very good price because she is such a snot-nose to ride. That was the only way I ended up have horses with Any talent at all when I was younger. Good luck to you.
Thank you! With all your information I am really looking forward to see how much stuffs itself into her category. I was warned she used to be a bit of a snot nose, but they said that's why they got her into cowboy training. The man literally warned her not to come out there until her training was over, people don't like to watch what their horse goes through in order to gain some respect.
This time I PROMISE to take videos of her movement and how she acts during certain processes.

I have seen quite a few nice horses on there, even a few barrel horses.

Aes, as a side note, if you are in Texas please take a look at horse's coming out of the track Rudiso Down's, especially ones bred by the Heurta's. That clan ended up with some of the Phillips and Whitley broodstock from the 40 and 50's. Their bloodlines are priceless but let's face it, if it get's to the track and doesn't want to run how much is it worth? For your sport look for Mr. Prospector and more specificly Carson City. If you can find Forestry or Mineshaft that is good to. If you must have close Northern Dancer look for Deputy Minister- he produced some of the most ridable winingest sport TB's. Excellent minds, huge hearts, great athletes and Brave. They are very people horses, they will try till their legs come apart. Vice Regent is another nice sport line but not as forgiving, they can be difficult.

I bought the 2005 mare. I took her to get her xrayed because of a slight limp. She has stage four navicular in both front feet and is up for sale as a brood mare and trail horse. I don't know what to do with her. The seller won't answer calls or messages (which have been read).

Yeah, obviously not getting the money I got her for but if she goes to a good home all is good. For now I'm I'm going to breeders and people who breed and train horses for a business. I have another thread called barrel prospects. All of you were so much help here, take a peak at that thread. I just wanted to let everyone know here what happened after I purchased that mare.

I did get one, the vets said a leg X-ray wasn't necessary.

:( That really sucks. I just went through re-homing a mare with hock arthritis that I didn't catch until I'd owned her for six months. It is no fun. I hope you find her a wonderful home and find something sound to compete. Best of luck.
