    Number two does have a better attitude than number one from what the trainer told me. Number three is a no go and I'm not going to her barn any longer.

    Sometimes people put chains on just because they had one bad experience with the horse.plus the chain doesn't seem to really be in use on her but she still seems pushy. My new trainer has taken a ex-racer who everyone said had to have a chain and put a simple nylon halter on and after a few mintues of some manners the horse completely changed. Although I do agree the second one seems way calmer I would go with her just becuase I like her calm quiet eye

    Another thing that I like about number two is that she only needs front shoes. Number one is still racing and pulling in money on the grass. She is being retired from racing because she isn't making money on the turf. I like that he only uses number two as a pony horse. She has been retired from racing for a year and is 6 years old. He said he has a 7 yr old apprentice who comes out with his grandpa and that is who he has him ride. I guess I was leaning toward number one because of her build and athletic abilities but I really do like how rounded number two is. I would love to hear some conformation feed back on horse two.

    IMO Number two would be faster training wise... Being that she's not racing so no let down period, and you'd have less re-training with her...

    Another plus to number two is that she is $800 less than number one which is good for my wallet.

    Number 1 is the better horse of the three. I would be skeptical of number 2 and number 3 is an absolute no.

    Keep us posted!

    Number three has already been marked off. Would you mind explaining why you would be skeptical of number two? I prefer the build of number one as well.

    Idk if it's the picture.. but #2 I don't like the way her neck ties in it looks high, the withers look a bit shark fin style to me as well. I would buy #1, she will take more training, but looks like she is curious, not wild. Very athletic girl.

    Number 2 has a swan neck and appears to be standing drastically under herself. The stance she has taken for the photo does not help. She is also slightly behind at the knee.
