I am under the impression that 10 is considered pretty old for a reiner.

I don't believe that's right. I've skimmed some ads and I've seen 11, 12, 16, and 17 year old reiners for sale. Any horse that's sound and well taken care of and well trained can continue their jobs for years past and expected date.

OMG, I love her....and the rider is doing her no justice. But I would have her hocks checked for sure...they look "sticky". She probably has arthritis and synovial fluid in the those joint comprised which requires maintenance to keep her at top form (like hock injections or Legend injections), but if you just want to trail ride her, she's worth that price. If she were close to me, I would get her for a western lesson horse.

It can be if joint maintenance was not top priority. But reining horses are usually retired around that age and just a bit older, simple because of the toll reining takes on joints.
