    Also, both parents are negative for HYPP (Or what the initials are). So under AQHA that makes the colt/filly automatically negative. Also belief is if she was positive for HYPP she wouldn't have been able to survive the cowboy training.

    She's not a bad looking little mare. She's got a ton more bone and a lot better angles in her legs than most halter bred horses. I question the "started right" part of it if they put a picture in the ad of her with her reins around the saddle to set her head, but if you're okay with re-training that, then I'd say go look at her.

    I asked about the started right, she said that she meant ground up. Lots of introduction and and manners. Vocal commands and respect, than worked with it under saddle. The reins are held infront of her in the picture, the ropes from the bit to the saddle were an act of a german martingale.
    I agree she has more bone, how do her hocks look. Decently angled?

    Because her tail is in the way on that one side picture, I can't tell the exact angle, but they don't appear overly straight.

    Unlike a lot of folks, I don't hold an aversion to halter bred horses for performance disciplines...so long as they've got the conformation to stand up to it. Heck, I used to have a grandson of Impressive who was a stellar team roping and reining horse.

    I think she looks decent from a conformation standpoint. Better bone, legs, pasterns and feet than many halter bred horses. Her neck is a little thick, and shoulder fairly upright, but I think she looks like she could be pretty powerful through her hind end.

    Her front legs look funky to me, but I can't tell if its just the picture or not. Almost seems like her entire left fore is crooked and lighter boned than the other?

    The only stock horses I have a hot clue about Other than the Goers Design babies are the Obvious Conclusion kids because I delt with quite a few and had a daughter. The geldings were worth their weight in gold as junior WP horses. They did GREAT as WP horses and had the best minds for a junior rider. They learned fast, didn't fuss, weren't spooky, once they learned their job you could leave them for months, load them up, go to a show and they were flawless. You could go down the trails and take them swimming, push cows, use them as a pack horse, teach a few lessons and then show on them. Just fantastic all round horses. The mares OTOH could be wonderful like the gelding or could be a nightmare. They seem to be a bit flakier. Some had to be on regumate or they were basket cases, some would fight you every day over stupid little things like going past a rock they had seen for the last 6 years of their life, some disliked people and were just misserable to ride ( ears pinned, tail whipping), some were very dominante and beat the tar out of the other horses, some were neurotic and would walk the fence, keeping them sound was neigh impossible. The geldings seemed to be spared this, it was just the mares that were nuts. Not all of them but enough to make you wonder.

    I was told she was a tail whipper and is a dominate mare. That's all. Ill have her at my place for a week before we decide to buy.

    Well as a gaming horse the 'tude might just be a PIA but you know that in a rail class that tail and those ears will knock you right out of the ribbons. I will say that those Obvious C. Mares were TOUGH as a coffin nail and seem to be athletic as heck if you could get them to do the work. Just a matter of what you are willing to trade off. 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.
