Personally Im not a big fan of paints but I think she is cute and has a good jump.

I love her markings, they are very interesting. She looks like she would be a good investment. She is very pretty and has good conformation.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

She has very nice conformation.
I'm not seeing anything wrong with it, and she has a good jump.
Seems like a good horse for what you're looking for.

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

Update...I saw a video of the horse. She seems a bit stiff on the front end. She doesn't have a lead change. Seemed a bit uneasy going through a grid although the higher the jumps got the more she seemed at ease...small fixable problems. No balking, no hesitating, no craziness. And the edit was a constant video that showed it editing...which is nice to see. She knocked a rail down and just kept going on without being weird or anything. Anyhoo... I told the seller that I wasn't willing to make a final offer until I rode her myself but my offer price range would be 3000-4000. (She's listed at 6). So we'll se what they say.

I really like the look of her and it sounds that she's honest with her jumping, and needing a only minor areas fixed/improved. I hope the seller will be interested in meeting with you.
