Possible buys. Please Give Opinions!

okay. Well supposidly this lady caught her husband cheating and needs money for her and her daughter to get an apartment...she therefore she has to sell all of her horses for cheap too. So please give me opinions on them. They are all supposidly good for beginners. Im going to look at 4 of them tomorrow and I only found ads for 3 of them. Thank you for looking.

Horse #1- 7 year old Overo Paint Trail Mare
She said she will take $1,200 or $1,300 for her if I liked her.

She said she would take $1800 for him or $1500 I can't remember.

Please tell me what you think about theses horses. Im going to look at and ride all of them tomorrow hopefully. The lady even agreed that if I liked one of them that she would trailer them to the barn for me for free pretty much cause she just needs the money as she's going through a rough and nasty divorce

I like the paint gelding the most and the appy

They all look like good horses, you should take them for a "test ride" before any big is decided.

Very nice colors..!

I really like the paint gelding the best... The other two say in their ads that they walk/trot but both of them don't say anything about cantering which kinda worries me... Test them out and see what you think! Good luck!

I noticed that too Wallaby, which made me think 2 things, either the paint mare cannot canter because she will rear/buck/ do something bad, or because of arthritis was advised not to canter.
I'm sure with the app that he doesn't have a solid canter and will need work on that.

I do like the paint gelding the best, and depending on the conformation of the horse, you'll be able to lower his head.

Good luck tomorrow!

If I was looking for myself, I think I would be interested in the Dun Appy first followed by the paint mare. Since they are all in the same place, just try them all and see which one you like best and as always, get a PPE.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

The fact that there are no pictures of the appy under saddle kind of bothers me. I personally am in love with the paint gelding.

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

okay so I went today and rode the one mare that I don't have listed above and the Dun App. I am in love with the app. He is the sweetest 4 year old I've ever ridden. The only problem with him is that he needs to be ridden in a ring more...since he was primarily used as a trail horse. I took him out on a trail with 2 other people and he was awesome. He jumped the mud patches it was funny. She wanted 2500 for him but we offered her 1500 cash and she said she would take it....we put down a deposit on him and im going to talk to my friend and my bo about it. They know these people coincidentialy. :]

That's great, I am glad that you liked him. You have enough horse sense to work him through his issues with the ring and with him being only 4, you will likely have a VERY long time with him. :) I wish you good luck and I want pix. ;p
