Talking Horse breed, confo, looks, and ability.

This horse.... Cross Country Prospect - Thoroughbred - Horsezone

what breed does she look like to you... (i know you can see her breed, but if you had no idea.. what would she look like to you?)

how high/tall does she look (again, i know it says, but still )

Her confo... what do you think about it!??!

and her looks... do you like it/not like it, and why?

and what do you think she looks like she can do? (as in you know how you see some horses and you think... that horse would not be able to jump)

Thanks heaps!! (:

She looks very thoroughbredy to me. Cute but all the pictures seem to be from two years ago and if she's that talented under saddle how come there are no pictures with anyone on her showing off her stuff?

I dunno, I would be wary that those are old pictures and she looks totally different now. Not that that's bad, you can always bring her back if she's healthy and willing

Good luck!

Thank you... im pretty sure there were some recent photos, also why theres none of her actually being ridden is cause the lady who owns her can't ride her, and she didn't take any photo's of Kevin McNab riding her.

I'm pretty sure the only old photo is of her just OTT 2 years ago.

thanks heaps though!! (: i'll always keep that in mind!

If I were you, I would be nervous of these excuses. They are selling a horse, they should be able to borrow a camera.

If you are interested, go see the horse, but let someone else, preferably the owner, or trainer, get on it first.

no, you can see her muscle has developed more, and she looks more mature.

Although I'm no expert, she could also be a standardbred. Despite her not being freeze branded like almost all the ones here are, I wouldn't rule it out. If you can get her put through some paces, see whether she will canter. If she can't/won't I would say that increases the chances she is a standie.

I would be very suspicious of this ad. "Cross country prospect" What the heck is that? It's either an event prospect, or a trail horse - there's no such thing as a cross coutnry prospect. Then - "Has been exposed to jumps once" What?????? You've "exposed" it to jumps once, but you're sure it will do well show jumping and eventing?

I would assume these owners got the horse off the track, found reschooling her was more than they bargained for, and are now looking to lease or sell.

All that aside, she is a nicely conformed, athletic mare, and I definitely see TB. Her most obvious flaw is that her neck is a tad short and also underdeveloped. (Typical in an OTTB)

I don't know what prices are in your area, but I would assume that very little has been done with her since the track and that her price should reflect that.
