He is a very pretty boy and I love his big bones. :) Getting him to canter shouldn't be that big of a deal and I have no doubt that you can handle it. *of course you could always send him my way for a few months* LOL.

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/

UPDATE- sooo. We had a down payment on the dun appy. Come to find out my BO knows her and we heard that she doesnt do such nice things to her horses. So we asked if we could take a trial on the horse for 7 days and she said deffinitly not...not for the price were paying for him..? (we were going to pay $1500 for a horse not even trained to canter yet...) so we assume theres something wrong with him...like he was drugged or something cause she would NOT let us take him in a trial. So yeah. Back to looking :]

I was looking at the ads and in the horse pictures... well it's a dumb questions but do horses get bruised all blue and such? I wonder why all of them have bluish patches on their rears and near their shoulders/necks... am I just missing something?

I don't know but from the sounds of it you should steer clear of that one.

I'm my spare time I ride dragons and runners, practice my Harper skills, talk to dolphins and hang with MasterHarper Robinton.

That is a major downer. :( Sorry it didn't work out. You will find the right one eventually.

Paint mare was my favorite out of all 3...

Yes, the refusal to do the trial gives a HUGE red light! It was smart not to buy him. Good luck in your search!

I don't think it was that much of a red light for her not to give you a trial (if you wanted to take the horse off the property) Since you are only paying 1500 for the horse, what's stopping you from just stopping all contact and walking away with the horse that you only put a down payment on (not saying you were going to do this, but its something that a seller has to look into)
If she refused to give you a trial if you were going to come to her barn then yes that is a red flag.

I hope you have better luck on your search!
