I am going to look at diff horses in 2 days, so if I don't like either im going to look at, I will try him again :)
I understand that there are a lot of really aggressive young riders. However, if this horse is still that green.. how did this girl outgrow him and move on to a greener horse? Sounds like they don't know how to really teach a horse. This girl has probably been clinging to the horses back. I would be hesitant because it sounds like the parents/people selling don't know all that much about horses/riding/training. I wouldn't trust what they tell you, because it sounds like they are lacking a lot of knowledge.
