Too true, I've ridden quite a few that I did all the groundwork on and though "Wow, that was easy, this is going to be a cake walk...then I step in the saddle and it's a whole different world". I've also trained some that all the groundwork was a fight and I just knew that they would be some horrid monster under saddle...then once I was mounted, they just walked off like they'd been broke for 10 years or so an never cause a single problem LOL.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I own the horse you guys are talking about. I had some bad feelings about getting her. I bought her a few months ago. Anyway, lately I've been looking up stuff on her dam and sire and tonight came across this. I did talk to the breeder but they just said sometimes horses going to auctions just happen. They also said there was no papers. We called them just after we got her. I am so in love with this horse I hope she doesn't have anything wrong with her. She is so sweet and a quick learner. My heart is truly breaking thinking something is wrong. I should have known better than to buy and not look into things. I did find a lot of stuff fishy but didn't listen to reality. She follows me around like a dog. If you guys know anything else about her please let me know. I will be getting her tested. Sad that people don't seem to mind doing this to others.

I would just have her HYPP and HERDA tested. I would be more concerned with the HYPP but while your at it better safe than sorry!

We did receive a horse in for training that the owners bought at auction, a REALLY pretty, nice, good personality mare. So obviously QH, she looked very well bred, for halter, but she was sold as grade with no papers. Yeah, she ended up HYPP N/H. We begged the owner to test her, but that fell on deaf ears until she had a very bad attack... her first one but not her last. Now she is a really nice looking pasture pet.
