Possible lease critique

Ok this is La Bamba she is a French Breed mare is very sweet and easy. She has experience and resultsin the Children's Jumpers. La Bamba is 15.3h, she is sweet, fast and fun.
I've never ridden her but i've seen her ridden and she is amazing.

Friendly bumb!

I'd say it'd be hard to tell if she is a good fit for you until you ride her. She looks like a fit, sane horse. But like I said, I'd like to see what she carries you like :)

Honestly, I'm not that impressed with the video. She can jump, yes, but she looked to be fighting with the rider for her head.

What is your level of riding experience?

She seems pretty flat and on the forehand to me. Is it a free lease or...?

I am an intermediate rider in hunter on the flat but I have only been jumping for a few months. The lease fee is 750 dollars a month.

Thank you all for your input.

$750 a month?

Is that standard fare for where you are at?

She does not look like a $750 a month horse to me.

Yeah that's pretty standard for the barn i'm at right now. :/

Wow, no! That is a LOT of money for that horse. I don't know about where you live but I keep my own horse + extras for that much a month. You can easily get board+food+basics on your own horse for hundreds less here and I'm in Los Angeles!

That is a lot to pay for a horse that is not yours, not spectacular and might need work.

Totally unrelated, why is there a big scary cactus in the arena?
