    Sorry to double post. They e-mailed me back about her and I looked at her walking video.

    Hi, Sara.

    If you go to our website www.oakridgefoxtrotterhorses.com you can see
    A short video of her. This was made last spring. I'm leading her so
    You can see that she's calm on the lead. I will tell you that she is
    Young and has things to learn. She hasn't been ridden a great deal so
    The saddling process, while not difficult, needs careful handling.
    She doesn't spook at anything particular and has learned to go into
    Water. She's really great on the trail. We've had our granddaughter
    On her and another young rider just the other day and she was fine.
    She will stand for the farrier once she remembers who he is. She is
    OK with the vet - I can give her her shots. I haven't noticed any
    Particular problems when she's in heat. She is not an aggressive
    Horse and seems to get along with other horses.

    She was born here on our farm so we've raised her. She looks striking
    Under saddle. We are anxious to sell her because we have just
    Acquired too many horses for the amount of land we have for pasture.
    In other words, we'll make you a GREAT deal.

    Link to her video on youtube. She squares up when she stops so maybe you can get a better idea of her height and build?


    Now keep in mind, that video was shot Dec '08. She's probably filled out a bit more since then and she's probably a bit taller than video'ed

    If you were going to use her for trails possibly. I wouldn't honestly spend more than maybe $300 on her. In this market, she just isn't worth it.

    Agreed. And there are LOTS of little "hidden" messages. If she's such a great trail horse, then why exactly is she a problem for saddling? Don't let the wording fool you - for one reason or another, this filly is a problem to saddle. And she stands for the farrier "once she remembers?" Ok, so is your farrier going to be impressed when she tries to kill him because of lack of proper training?

    All I see is a badly conformed, half-broke bucket of problems with a nice big hefty price tag. If you're deadset on having her, make sure you count on the next few years you're going to need getting her properly trained.

    If its any consolation, my instructor doesn't like her either. But I am going to see that TB mare, Dutchess on Sunday. =D
