Belgian/QH Cross

This Little Missy will be used for trail/pleasure riding only.

She is for sale (I'm thinking of buying her) and as you can see they have some no-no's in their choice of equine care.

All that aside, she rode like a dream and cleaned up very nicely. She is like a diamond in the rough. Healthy, current on everything now. And has seen the farrier since these pictures were taken.
I will get her in May if I proceed with the sale.

These were some pictures they sent me when I inquired about her being for sale. I was going to get more pictures of her but forgot, these aren't the best.

I have since went to ride her and she is amazing on the trail.

She is 6yo. 15.1-15.3HH. Belgian/QH cross.
Although she is meant for a trail horse, her confirmation still needs to be up to par. :)
What do you think? Remember she has draft horse bloodlines. :)

Anyhow....she looks good if she's just going to be trail ridden. Very beautiful.

Barbed wire with horse hair deco.

She looks like a sweetie, I see no conformational flaws that will give you a rough ride on the trail.

I really wish people would take better pictures of the horses they want to sell. But you never know, some people just don't have the skills and when you see the horse in person it's WAY better than in the pictures.

That's why I said there were some equine NO-NO's.
I don't approve. Haha!

Actually they have since replaced it with braided hot wire.

That was a part of the pasture that didn't hold horses and they had to move some there while they were dealing with down trees and such after some bad weather.

Good to know she is kept in better conditions, huh?

Some of these folks in the south just don't get it. :)

I didn't see/feel any major confirmation flaws either.

I am also getting a pre-purchase exam on her as well.

She looks pretty good for trail riding. ;) I say go for it.

Ride more, worry less.

Something about her front legs bug me. It looks like they curve in.

She's back at the knee.

I don't see anything that would prevent her from being a trail horse.

She is a little back at the knee. All in all I don't see anything that's going to hinder her riding ability in the future.

Is it just me or do many draft breeds have a little of the "back at the knee" look?

She's very nice. I don't see anything bad about her, should be good trail horse (if not spooky!).
