What do you think of her?

The pictures aren't great as I don't personally know her but she is local and I was thinking of attempting to convince my mom to atleast have a look at her since I really am looking to find something I can step up and actuall advance with.She would be used for barrels, trail and just general riding.

She's pretty. Make sure you are able to give her a job to do in addition to just trail. I've found that those type horses need a lot of work or they get "testy" when bored.

Hmm. If you're going to spend the money, at least spend it on a butt! She looks nice, until you get to her bum. It's lacking for my taste.

You'd think with all that foundation breeding she would have a butt. LoL.

She looks decent. Might be worth a look in person...

QHriderKE- to be honest looking around there surprisingly aren't many nicely bred quarter horses out here that are under 1000, broke and over 4yrs old. Mainly arabs and more english style tbs. I think with the correct workouts I could get her butt plumped up some :]
CLa- I agree hahah she might get more of a butt with correct workouts but depends on her really

Why not get yourself a 2 year old to work with?

Because I don't have the experience nor the time or money to keep a 2 yr old that I won't be able to run for another 2-4 years depending on how/ when his/her joints fully develop. I'm looking for something I can get going now hence the min age of 5.

Ah. Even a started 3 year old? Chances are, you aren't going to find a good horse under $1000 that is over 4 for 5. Most likely, it will have some serious vices, require a ton of retraining, or is lame as the day is long.
