She looks smart and quick, just perhaps under conditioned. I love a sassy QH!

I would agree except that I am not willing to get something so young I know what I can handle and my current mount I have been undoing bad training for the past 2 years starting with breaks and giving to pressure. He now has awesome ground manners and can be ridden in a snaffle. I cna handle small vices but I will be picky on what I get I'm not getting the first horse I look at made that mistake before. This mare was actually 1100 last week but they lowered her price today. I am just not willing to get a baby I won't even ride my ranches baby I'm not up for the needs of a baby.

I'm actually a little on the fence... Overall, she's nice, but I feel like she has a long back and I just don't really like her back end. I think she's at least worth going out to look at, though, as those pictures aren't the best to go on. I feel rather 50/50 on her, if that makes sense lol.

She can be started on the pattern right now.

You aren't going to get a horse that's pretty much ready to go for the price you want. It just doesn't happen. You're either going to have to go younger, even if it's by a year, or buy something that's had the living daylights rode out of it and is lame. Horses are selling cheap here, and I still havent seen what you're looking for happen.

I never said already barrel trained I have a trainer specifically for barrel who will be helping me with that no matter what I get however no I do not HAVE to go lower on age and not all 5 and up are ridden to death I have found many that havent been just wrong breed or size as I prefer something upper in height. Now again I would appreciate you stop trying to shove a younger horse down my throat without knowing my situation as I did not ask for that kind of opinion I simply asked about this mare.And you really don't fully know what I am looking for.

You are asking for a broke horse than you can start on barrels right away, correct?

It's time to be realistic here with an example: A 15+hh horse, broke to ride, has a solid foundation, decent conformation, little or no vices, and is over 5 and less than or equal to $1000.

That does not happen. Once a horse has good conformation, papers and has been sat on it's worth $1000.
After a good foundation is put on it, add another 200, per say.
Add, for example, 4 years of riding: Add another $800.

What I mean by now is really ride now not worry about joints not being fused or having that immature attitude and games that babies play. I want something that has atleast walk trot lope and stop on him/her and atleast 5. This is common around here however breed is not which is why I stated above I will be picky and am not getting the first horse I see I have something to ride now I am not in a rush to get something else. This mare is a perfect example of what I am looking for she has more then the basics on her and is UNDER 1000.Also height doesn't play into price it is just what I prefer and I said small vices are ok not that I wanted little or non I am ok with taking some time to work out vices I've taken a year a half undoing my current mounts bad vices pulling back ,extrremly cinchy ,rearing when mounting, taking off when mounting, no brakes, and little ground manners. I have found ONE 4 year old that I would concider however I do not want to go younger if I can help it.
