I'm thinking I might drive out there and take her for a test ride, it's an hour away though. If I do I will try to get video.
I asked about a lease with option to buy, but the terms seem a little steeper than I like although they probably aren't bad terms. They are selling for 800 and the lease with option to buy would be to lease until March (first schooling show) at 150 per month which would be 600 by march right there which I wouldn't get back if I don't buy her but go towards sale cost if I do. Then I have to pay for her winter shots, all farrier, vet, board, feed, tack etc. No tack will come with her. Every horse I leased in the past the owners paid for shots, teeth etc so...not sure on this one.
She says he only concern is that the horse be used instead of sitting, but yet...I don't know. I know this horse would need a LOT of work before going into the show ring. I may be able to do intro at most the first year.
In the vids she seems to me like she's trying, she just doesn't quite understand because her rider is speaking a different language than she is used to.
