    Potential Purchase - QH Mare

    I have not ridden her yet but I am going back on Thursday or Friday with my saddle to do so. She is 12. Was purchased by an elderly lady who visited her every day and loved on her and groomed her but never actually rode her during the year or so she had her. The lady passed away about 8 months ago so she has been sitting for almost 2 years now. This video was the month after the lady passed but she has been a pet at the boarding barn ever since.



    NOT SURE WHO DID THE VIDEO BUT I GUESS THEY WERE HAVING FUN!
    PERHAPS IT WOULD BE BETTER TO TURN THE SOUND OFF WHEN YOU WATCH!!

    I see no good conformation pics. But her canter looks very off, almost like she's sore somewhere. Do you have any conformation pictures?

    Sorry I may have posted in the wrong place. I wanted an opinion of exactly what you said, the movement in the video. If I decide to go forward I will go ahead and get a vet check from an equine vet. Just so expensive, was quoted about $500!! But, I guess that takes into account 2 hours travel time too in addition to the time to do the exam itself. If they found she is unsound it would be money well spent however.

    Her canter looks like a Western Pleasure canter..so almost a 4 beat.

    Have her checked. I like her.

    It does look almost four beat, but without training for the discipline requiring four beat couldn't it be a symptom of pain or lameness? I agree, vet check. Do you know what she was previously trained for? Who owned her before the lady or her medical history?
    Te carriage of her body doesn't resemble a western pleasure horse.

    She was a reining and sorting horse. The man who owned her retired her at 10 and wanted her in a good home. He says she was sound when he sold her. But this is hard work on a horse so she may have arthritis.

    I should say I am looking for a good trail horse. I ride about 2 or 3 hours, just kind of ambling along 5 or 6 days a week.

    If she was sound then why did he retire her?

    Either way, if she has arthritis or any lameness issue if get it checked before purchase. Long trail rides that often still can take it's toll on pained parts of the body. She looks sweet and kind, but definitely get her legs and hooves checked
