Critique this horse I'm interested in buying.

I'm looking into this horse, Conti. She's 7 y/o, 16.1 and an ottb. She's been off the track since 2006. Thanks!








Isn't she pretty?

Cute!
Conformationally, her shoulder is a little too upright for my taste, and I'd prefer to see more length in her neck. Also, her right front worries me -- is there a story to that? Or maybe I'm insane and there isn't anything going on there.
Overall, she's put together very tightly with a powerful hip.
What would you want to do with her?

Well, she's still not super trained, and as for the front right, I think its just the picture. I'm looking for a possible jumper or maybe eventer with more work. But she's only $1,900 as shes from a racing barn, and they don't have the space for her. And I feel with work, she could become something.

Thats what I thought, too. I saw her, and she just kind of like stood out. She's gorgeous in my opinion, I just wanted others.

Very pretty!

How is her mind? Is she calm?
I recently got a TB off the track to and I'm really lucky that he's got such a great mind :)

But gorgeous horse!!

She's calm, she loves to trail ride. She's a total love bug and has great manners. No vices either.

She looks like a warmblood to me! She's stunning, but I'm biased when it comes to dapples.

Her neck is a little short, and her shoulder is a little upright, but these won't cause lameness or anything of that sort, she just may be a little harder to rider [neck causes collection difficulties somtimes, and upright shoulder makes the ride jarring]. I agree with Shameless about what she said about her front, it almost looks like she bowed a tendon, but you said it was the picture.

How thorough of a vet check are you getting? When it comes to OTTBS, you really have to get thier legs exaimed thoroughly, even if that costs more than the horse.

I'm going to have my vet look at her. He's a great vet in my opinion, and several of my trainers use him and have said nothing bad.
