    Critique: Ok lay it on me,Gypsy!

    Im selling Gypsy and so far I have only had e-mails but no shows. Im asking 2,000. I paid 1,600 she was still green when I bought her I put TONS of work into finishing her. I think if I lower my price I wouldnt be making a good profit. Here is her basic info...

    14 yrs
    15.2 hh
    Training:
    Nat. Horsemanship training.
    Solid level dressage training.
    Goes English/western (neck reins)
    Also jumps.
    Is an awsome trail horse can go out alone or in group crosses water/bridges.
    Excellent ground manners...ect.

    So give me the good,the bad and the ugly. Im good with handling crituque so lay it on me!

    Here are her new shots





    I know this isnt the best riding shot, I think we were doing a firgure 8 to loosen her up. But yah...


    ...So would you be interested in buying her how much would you pay? What would you use her for jumping? Western? Dressage, english? A penny for your thoughts.

    Id probably only pay $1500 because of the problems you've had with her.

    Oh that sucks. Huh... Yah she's a better trail horse then an arena horse. The other day she spooked at a horse sneezing. But out on the trails she's great but for the tight areas. I wonder if I should just get her super great on trails and sell her that way? I think she just gets bored in the arena and that's why she spooks. Because I've done everything with that problem....At least I can handle it now.

    Maybe you could sell her as a great trail prospect. Or get her good at the trails and sell her as a trail horse only. I can see loads of potential in her.

She's actually came such a looong way from being to scared to come out of the barn and now to be able to go out on trails by her self and walk trot canter! Ok im a little proud of my self but we actually CANTERED up a hill...lol ya ya many of you can do it. But it was my very first time it was soooo fun! She did great. We first trotted and I was like "wweeeee...Weeee WEEEEEE." lol true I said that then we cantered. But she has a LOT of get up and go!

    See we think she use to game, cause when my trainer was on her in one of my lessons gypsy could "turn on a dime" my trainer was yeilding her for taking over and she got on those honches so fast and was like boom down to the other side... But don't you think she is to old being 14? I know she's the second to the fastest horse here. Her canter in the arena I mean sheesh when cantering in a group I have to be first and then im even on the tail end of the group.
    But my trainer swears up and down that her lesson horse sunny has the fastest gallop, you can't tell by his canter tho.
    Thanks for help by the way!

    14 isnt old at all to do gaming. There was a horse at the show I was at last week who was doing barrels at the ripe old age of 28! Boy could he run!

    Wow 28 that's amazing...! I always thought the horses that did gaming were younger. I don't know why. As much as I want to jump and go to shows I never get to and probably wont until I get my own truck and trailer.

    Hmmm so now she will be a trail horse/gaming prospect...lol I don't know she can just do anything with the training, work that's been put into her.
