    I think he is a very nice looking guy. However, he appears to be slightly "off" on his left foreleg-pretty noticeaby by the end of the video. Also, he tosses his head a lot. Perhaps this is a result of the way he is being ridden, or an indicator of pain. Someone once told me that all arabs toss their heads, but, that is baloney! Whatever horse you choose, take a trainer along to try it out, and budget a little extra for a vet check- it might save you a lot of hassle down the road. Happy horse hunting!

    Very pretty boy! He has a lovely way of moving and seems very attentive and responsive to his rider. I say go for it!!

    He is gorgeous, and he does seem very responsive! I am going to go for a test ride if I can get in contact with the owner, and I am going to get a vet check. ^^ It will just take a lot of work getting money saved up.

    She just told me that because of his tendon injury he's not suitable for jumping! =/

    Forget that.

    Personally, I wouldn't touch this guy with a ten foot pole. He's extremely fidgety, not at all happy in what he's doing, looks very "pully", going around with his mouth open. Can't see the bit but I'm willing to bet it's not just a light snaffle. He's very stiff and short strided in the back, maybe the beginning of arthritis? He's pretty, but that's about it. From the ad, we know he was injured badly enough to need surgery, and that they recommend him for an experienced rider, which more than likely means he's pretty strong, or has some issues. Not likely a good choice for a first horse, especially considering your particular physical concerns. But that's just my take on it.

    Keep in mind, I'm not sure of your actual location or price range, but I fell in love with this guy. Although, he still might be a little on the green side. Without a video, I can't tell as much.

    Thanks ^^ I think that's a little far, but I'll keep it in mind.

    Personally, if it were me I would stay away from him. I would want something that didn't have any past issues that required surgery, ect. "Limited endurance distance" just wouldn't fly for me. I would want something that could go all the way. Good luck

    I think he's pretty and he obviously has a lot of training, but he is still in the green stage and at his age, should be past that. The head tossing could be a pain issue, it could be teeth, and it could be a bad habit, either way it's going to be work to fix and then the tendon injury has me shaking my head no.

    My opinion is keep looking, but he is cute.
