Possible Buy-Western Pleasure

I'm looking for a horse that I can do open shows with and this mare looks like a candidate. I'm just interested in your opinions on her. Thank you!

Take Me Captive - 5 Year old AQHA Mare

Sire: Last Captive

Very nice all around show mare. Broke very well. Been shown very successfully by a 13 and under and won many first places. Finished in showmanship, western pleasure, horsemanship, Hunter Under Saddle, Equitation, and trail. Very nice mare to be around. Incentive fund enrolled. Trail rides great. Great horse to get the kids or novice amatuer started in AQHA show or open shows. $6000

I like Last Captive babies. They seem to have really good minds and do well in the show ring. A friend of mine has a last captive mare (she's a youth) and does really well on her.

I'm not crazy about the tail carriage on this horse but I do like it. It's definitely worth a look.

Thank you farmpony. I have also heard good things about Last Captive babies from friends of mine.

In vid 2 and.....4, her lope looks stiff and kinda off-balence. But that's just me. Maybe its a WP horse thing.

No thunderhooves, it's not a 'wp horse thing'... She is very unbalanced and stiff, and I'm not quite sure why. She looks stiff in the jog in her trail video also.

Get X-Rays! I don't think she's worth 6k in this market, she's needing lots of correction.

I think she's just heavy on the forhand. I would look at her. Vet checks are always a plus though. Last Captive babies go for a high price because of his proven record. I actually got to see him compete a few years ago (he's gelded now). He's a nice nice horse, great attitude.

For $6,000 I would recommend getting a vet to do a pre-purchase exam... Doesn't hurt to be safe when making the investment.

The quality of the video is pretty hard to tell, but she looks like she's paddling quite a bit on her front left. She also looks pretty stiff in her front end, particularly in her left shoulder. I think she's worth going to look at but definitely get a vet check on her.

Thank you all so much! I'm fairly sure I could get her for around 4,500 and of course a vet check would be done.

Being a fairly green rider, do you think I would be able to work with her with weekly lessons, or should I look for a horse that might need less work? I see what you mean with her lope, it's a little iffy.

And also I agree, her tail is quite annoying.
