You're gut's most likely right. I had the exact opposite thing happen. I found a horse who, when I went to see him, didn't have a nice trot, was a bit too thin, and much younger than what I wanted, but he had a nice personality, a good mind as they call it. I left thinking I'd keep looking. For the next two weeks, my gut kept screaming at me to go get that horse. I ended up getting him and found myself with the best TB I could ever have hoped to find. He's just the sweetest boy in the world. Trust that gut! You'll do fine.

I really think they were trying to push you into buying also. I bet lots and lots of people can share with you stories of how those kind of horse purchases go terribly wrong. Definetly trust your gut when all the red flags are popping up, but when you find a horse you love, be careful, because you will be following your heart then. That's why having a more experience person with you and a pre-purchase vet exam are necessary when buying a horse
