    16hh QH gelding critique!

    Hey everyone,
    I'm interested in a qh gelding. This is what his ad says:

    2002 16H Western Pleasure QH, Congenial Chip aka Ruben is a grandson of Zips Chocolate Chip, has been successfully shown in NS in Western/English Pleasure, loads easily in trailer, easy to clip & bathe. In perfect health and no vices. Has an wonderful personality and is a sweetheart in the barn. UTD on vacinations and worming, has excellent feet and is great with farrier. Selling because I have no need for a show horse at this time. A good home is a must!! Transportation available. Serious inquiries only.

    His price is $6000 neg. In everyone's experience, exactly how neg. Is neg?

    Thanks in advance!

    Free horses usually have hidden issues and the fact that there are free or unregistered horses out there doesn't have much to do with the question the OP asked.

    OP - It's hard to tell (for me) confirmation wise from that photo. He certainly is a cute horse, I'm curious what "showed successfully" means. I wonder if it means he's been in the ring, in the ribbons, or has points. I'd be curious to see a video of him. I really don't know if he's worth that much money or not just from the ad.

    My suggestion for you if you are serious about him would be to have him vetted since he is a western pleasure horse. Only because, depending on the amount of training and riding he has under his belt, he could have hock issues and you'll want to know that going in. He's cute though. I'd be curious to see a video.

    First I am going to ask what you want to use the horse for? Are you going to train to learn western pleasure showmanship or are you just wanting a horse to trail ride. We also don't know what part of the country you live in and horse prices are higher/lower in certain areas as opposed to others. These couple things may help us answer in regard to the price.

    Also a confirmation critique really needs to have the horse square and no saddle on. There are many defects sellers can cover just by saddling up the horse.

    Pedigree is a good reference, but that's all it is, I think one of the best ways to sum it up is Secretariat was a great race horse, he put a lot of foals on the ground, but none have sadly met his reputation.

    In this case a video would help to see the movement.
