    What I saw in the video was a *very* made, very ridable Chidlren's Jumper. Perhaps the other posters were looking for something that would go more like a hunter? I like this horse very much, and I particularly like how adjustable she was and how she's taking care of the rider. She looks to be a great first show horse for the jumpers, to build a rider's confidence and show them the ropes. Looks like she's also capable of advancing under the right rider as she can clearly handle more height.

    $750./month is not outrageous for board + lease fee for something capable of doing rated shows. Show barn board in my area is at least $500./month, $250/month on top of that for an experienced show horse seems pretty reasonable to me.

    For a pleasure horse or a local show horse, yes, it's a lot of money. Horses capable of qualifying kids for indoors lease for lots more.

    If you like her when you ride her, and your trainer thinks it's a good fit, I say go for it. The great thing about leasing is that if it's not all that you expected or not working, you can always terminate the lease and go on to the next option.

    Good luck!
    I agree with this ^^..around here $750 is not outrageous for said horse/services, and board at my barn is $525 a month, I guess it is just different prices in different areas. She seems like a good little horse to me. She looks very capable of advancing also. I think she would make a pretty good lease.

    Hi Hunter!
    While I do agree that this isn't a ridiculous price, I feel like you could find cheaper for such a nice horse. I am a fellow Arizonian, and know what prices are like. Just had to add that hey, that's Twisted Tree! I have friends who used to board there and their mom had a horse there (Molly, Hannah and Alix B, if that rings any bell whatsoever). They also LOVED Janet.

    The horse seems nice, and if you like her, go for it. I just think that her price is high... but that's my opinion. I have seen many horses of that quality going on leases for about half of that, if not less. I happen to know of somebody who is giving their hunter/ jumper away for free, or even a free lease. PM me if you want any more details. I'll just tell you now that he's a been there done that horse.
    Sorry for kinda trailing off... but she could turn out nicely for ya. Good luck!

    Rbarlo32- haha, the children's names are Molly and Hannah and their mom is Alix! Lol

    Hunter-
    I've personally never worked with Janet, but I've seen her a several Grand Prix's with my friends... and wow! She is awesome! I wasn't at the Scottsdale season final, though that would have been fun... right now I'm doing baby stuff with my horse, he's a great jumper, but I'm... not! Haha He gets a tad bit energetic, and I'm still getting comfortable with it!
    Now, were you at the Scottsdale season final?

    Hunter- In total agreement here! I'm there to watch the rated shows... lol! I've done the Copperstate show once... but that's more of a schooling show, with a low rating... not sure what it is though. I'm sticking to 4-H shows right now. Certainly is cheaper, only $5 a class!

    I think that is absolutely a ridiculous price for that horse. You definitely can find something much nicer for much less $$$. She does not look like a push button show horse that's going to WIN shows to me. She looks strong or at least resistant to the bit to the fences, and when she gets to them, she barely gets over them (as clearly illustrated in the jumping picture you showed of her, where her knees are just showing above the fence midway through her jumping arc). To me, she actually looks like a lot of work, and like she is going to knock a lot of rails. She is not stylish and even enough for a hunter, and not careful and clean enough for a jumper. Looks much more equitation to me.

    I would keep looking. I'm sorry, I know that's not what you wanted to hear.
