One thing that concerns me is her age for her training... If she was greener than they say she is there might not be a problem but it leads me to wonder how early they started her for gaming. May lead to joint problems early on in life if they started riding her pretty hard at around 2, and it can take awhile to train a gaming horse. Again, I'm not sure how well she's trained under saddle but the fact that they're showing her already makes me wonder.
If anyone thinks differently, they probably know better than I do, though. Take my opinion on this with a grain of salt! ;)
Thanks I think she just started on gaming recently and I haven't tried her out, she sent me a video of her friend riding her when her friend has never riden before and she looked really good, the show they had was a county fair and I know she needs more work on barrels, she got a 24 and the winning horse was 17, I am going to be leasing her for a month and then if I like her do a lease to buy.
