What do you think about her?

Take the Press, 6 year old, 16 h mare | Finger Lakes Finest Thoroughbreds

I am still looking at horses, even though I know the earliest I could possibly get one is spring, since I need to save for shipping... but I feel like a new horse would help with the healing process.

I quite like the mare in the link above but I'm curious as to what everyone else thinks.

I *really* don't like her hind end, it almost looks like a roach back through the LS and back. Hocks are fairly straight, and the front pasterns scare me a little.
Personally, I'd pass. Sorry hon...

I was wondering if her back was a bit roached.. I'm definitely glad that I have everyone on here for unbiased advice though.

Sorry mate I agree with JDI. I wouldn't touch her with a 40 foot barge pole.
Horrendous back end and a very weak shoulder.

My suggestion to you if you want to continue learning Dressage, is to wait a little longer, save as hard as you can, and find something with very good conformation and 3 good paces. Don't rush into buying something just because it's cheap and quiet.

I'm definitely going to save up a bit more, although I wish summer would hurry up since that's when I'll be working at the pool again. I'd just like to find a decently priced horse with good conformation and a bit of potential, I can hope anyways. I do want to start learning dressage with said horse, as that was something that I wanted to try with Indie once her training was more progressed.

OP It is definitely worth the money for a pre purchase exam on any horse you buy. It can save you a ton of money and heartache in the long run. The horse you originally posted was definitely off as well. Good for you for letting that one pass by. I would be willing to bet that horse would have some issue with soundness long term.
