Well, you DEFINITELY need to assess her rotation and you DEFINITELY need a good farrier/trimmer and vet on board. And then add about 25% to the recovery time, 50% to the cost, and 100% to the time invested in care and you have a place to start from. Just to be ultra conservative. That is assuming that the farrier and vet think she has a future as a riding horse.
You can ask about her training, but take all answers with a huge grain of salt. If they have videos of her being ridden, you could look at those.
I am playing the waiting game right now because her owner had given her away and the deal was she got her back if the girl couldn't keep her. So she wants to ride her because the girl hasn't rode her all year. This waiting sucks. Posted via Mobile Device
