I'm a newbie here! Little bit about myself: I have been riding since I was probably 6 yrs old. 20 now. Senior in college at University of Alabama. Since I've been in school, haven't been able to ride much...except for a summer rodeo queen pageant (which I won YEA! ) Anyways, today I have decided that I absolutely cannot stand to not have a horse ANYMORE! So, I am visiting a boarding barn on Friday morning (100 a month for full board with 6hrs a week of work---GREAT DEAL I think ) And hopefully, I will be looking/riding this horse on Saturday. Back when I was riding often, I was a member of several horse forums and critiques help out sometimes so I was wondering if any of you wonderful horse people could help me out on this guy. He is a QH/TB cross, registered with AQHA, 10 yrs old, has been in shows, trail rides, and has even jumped a little. Sounds too good to be true almost. But anyways, any opinions (and don't be afraid to give an honest one - I know the pics are kinda dark sorry) would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks in advance!
he looks like a nice horse, with correct training and work, he can develop up his whole topline and his neck should improve with that. It doesnt look like a conformation thing with his neck, just lack of muscle
WAY TOO SKINNY! Looks like he needs about 100+ pounds on him! Look how his back is sunk in and his spine is sticking up. There is no way I'd even ride him in that condition. IMO if they are asking $1700 for him that's insane. Poor fellow. :(
