I didn't think you were being rude draftrider - don't worry about it.
Exactly drafteventer! I've seen horses with not so great conformation end up being wonderful mounts for low level riders. Heck, I've seen horses come out of the Kill Pen as rescue's at auctions end up being phenominal horses.
It's all about whether the horse is sound, sane, safe and a horse that can help a low level rider grow and mature.
Get a Vet Check, meet the horse, get on the horse, take it home and do a 2 week trial - that's the best bet.
If you are that concerned about the horse, make sure you bring educated eyes with you when you go out and see the horse. Someone who has been in the business for a long time, someone who can pick out little things that another wouldn't even notice.
It's one thing to look at pictures on the internet - but another to see the horse in person.
