She is a very cute horse. I see no stifle stiffness, but her way of going is a bit like a deer, "pronking". I see that a lot in Arabs. But, again, it could be that she is being chased , so is moving defensively.
She is downhill, for sure, so you might not like that. How old was she? She may still have some growing to do. Look at her sire/dam for a good idea of the adult conformation.
She has really good balance and knows exactly where her feet are. Did many perfect flying lead changes. She seems really level headed. Several times she asked "can I come in now?" not really scared.

I think she'd make an excellent trail , all aroud horse.

The "deer" movement is exactly why I think the current owner stated she would not be a good "serious" dressage prospect..she called it "up and down" movement. She reminds me of Kevin Costner's mare on Dances With Wolves. I have never really been attracted to buckskins in general, but something about her really caught my eye.

She is broke, but has only been trail ridden..nothing serious. No vices, loads clips etc. Sounds like a very sweet mare. I have spoken with the person selling her, and the woman is VERY honest and forthcoming..she tells me the mare will never be a serious dressage prospect. She says she is "too up and down"..which is fine I am only looking to do lower level stuff with my instructor..no competing. I really like this mare though.

When you go ask them what grading this mare got on her American Warmblood inspection. You need 60% to pass and I suspect she just got the bare minimum.

When there are no riding videos or pics it's the loud ring bell to me. If the horse does trail riding even if its green you can still show how it behaves with the rider on. Basically that's what I meant by "funny feeling". Also that "not a good project because of the up and down" just sound strange to me. I wonder if she has any health or behavioral issues under her belt. Not trying to scare you away because I liked her, just I'd go with the vet check and at least a trial trail rides when you'll check her out.

Ditto this. That's a long video of a woman chasing a horse around a ring so it gallops around -- none of that is very useful information to someone wanting to seriously purchase a riding horse.

It's good you are going to see her but have the owner ride before you get on just to be safe!

They're asking 12,500 for an up-until-now trail horse?

From what I see it is worth no more than $750.00

i'd have to agree with this. For just a trail horse (as imo that's what she looks best suited for), $12,500 is WAAAY too much money regardless of if she's registered or not. Personally, i'd like to see the horse doing a lot more than just being chased around (as I know other people have said). How is she being led? How is she being tied? What are her ground manners like? How is she being saddled and ridden? <-- these are things I like to see in a seller's video.

She doesn't look like a bad horse, just not a horse worth what they're asking for any reason. Of course, i'm not the one looking to buy her so... ;)
