    I wasn't being rude, I gave you my input on her conformation and why I think she wouldn't do well as a dressage horse, and was told it didn't matter because any horse can do what you are looking for.

    I would do exactly what MIEventer said to do.
    I would test the horse out to see if your personalities click. Vet Check/ride/possibly trial the horse
    ANY horse can do the lower level stuff, so long as she has a great temperment and can stay sound, she'll be great. The horse doesn't have to have perfect comformation. :)

    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.

    Thank you MIEeventer, I didn't think I was being rude. I am aware that sometimes my lack of knowledge about a certain subject makes me fumble words and I do tend to shoot straight from the hip so to speak, but that is just my way and if it offends someone I do apologize.

    You have no reason to appologize for anything, you've done nothing wrong. You're just being honest as myself and anyone else on this forum - someone wants opinions, they get them whether they like it or not.

    The joys of forums :) People are quick to misinterpret words on a computer screen, easy to do with no facial expressions or tone of voice.

    Just be yourself :) I like ya :)

    I don't see much about her that I like. She just doesn't do anything for me. But she's a really good price if she's as broke as they claim, and if you really like her, go for it. I don't see why she couldn't do dressage and eventing. :)
