OTTB Possible Buy! :) Critique ASAP, please!

She's a 3 y/o, unraced, ottb mare. She's 15.3hh. She was too slow to for them to race her. I'm looking for a hunter / jumper project horse. I want your opinions. I'm going to look at her and see how she looks in person tomorrow morning. And what would you pay for her? (I know what they're asking, but I want to see what you guys think she's worth just as an ottb. I'll tell you what they're asking after I get a few replies.)

These are the pictures on her ad:

Her shoulder seems a little bit steep to me but that is all that really stands out about her conformation to me. Her legs seem nice and straight (and looong LOL) but I am wondering about the bump on her right hind cannon. The angle of the pictures makes her neck look short, but I don't think it really is. She is a nice looking girl.

I have no guess on price though. Depending on her level of training, I probably wouldn't pay more than $1200. But that may just be my western eye looking at her.

She's got a short neck and looks quite front-end heavy to me. I also don't really like the look of her back legs, couldn't really tell you why, but I don't like them. I probably wouldn't spend more than $1000 on her. And that bump on her cannon...don't like it.

The ad and the woman said she was sound, so we'll see tomorrow. So I'm hoping it's just a blemish now and it's not a problem spot. I'll be sure to pay particular attention to that spot when I'm feeling her down and checking her legs.

And for the record, they only want $500 for her, which I don't think is bad.

Just make sure you get a full vet exam, would be my advice. :)
    07-27-2010, 09:43 PM
Yeahh, that was the plan. I just want other people's opinions, too. :)

Anyone else?

I think she's cute. She sure looks like a young three though. I don't know enough about hunters to know what you are looking for but she looks to be a nice enough hacking horse. Does she have any saddle training? Has she been started? For 500, she might be worth picking up

That is a good price, especially for unraced. They will get cheaper in the fall, as you probably know, as the tracks close for the winter......ALWAYS a vet, even tho a $500 horse, just bc it is ottb.....imo.
Good luck!
