Have they done X-rays or any other diagnostics to see if anything is impinging on the spine? Are you wanting a pasture puff, or a riding horse? I honestly would not expect to buy her as a riding horse in case there is something just a hair out of place that slips and something tragic happens. If you just want a pasture puff that's a different story - just be prepared to put her down if and/or when she starts showing worsening symptoms.
A couple of things to keep in mind - you likely would never be able to sell this mare; if you for some reason cannot keep her, I may suggest putting her down - you cannot guarantee a home after you. Of she ends up sold on and on from yourself, she may well end up in a can by no fault of her own. So you would either have to be in it for the long haul, or step back now and allow her to pass.
