This is a horse I'm buying Thursday only $200. Critique as harsh as you want.

15 hand tall Appendix

Minimal ground training but not pushy
Not very trained under saddle. She has no idea what you want if you ask her to move forward, but no buck or rear. Plenty of energy...

I usually get the oddest horses, I like showing up at shows with the wackiest horses and taking 1st place in the jumper ring. But she's defiantly the most average looking horse I have owned.

The only one thing I don't like about her is how bad she toes out in the back but she's very narrow right now it might change with muscle. I'm going to use her for the show jumping ring and kids lessons as I have some advancing little riders.

Picking her up for only $200








Heres how she moves out at a trot (the owner is horse ******ed) but very nice.

She seemed so willing when I got on her she just had no idea what I wanted. So I walked her around and asked the lady to trot her in a line. The owner thought I was going to work her hard but I don't want the horses first impression of me to be "the one that barged into my home and made me work" she lives in the ladies backyard and is never worked. So im going to take things slow with her, maybe pony her allot because she can use some walking muscles.

That sounds like a good plan to me. Building a good, strong relationship is very important!

Nice looking horse. Needs muscle, especially in the neck but she has a nice overall build. Slightly cowhocked in the back but nothing too extreme to worry about. I think she would do well for what you want with training & a nice price too ;) lol

Super nice horse! What a deal! Looks like she could be a really sweet horse. She has a nice face and looks very sweet. I would say lunge her and get some muscle in her neck! Then she would look great!
