    Horse For Lease ] Black Thoroughbred Gelding
    Thoroughbred Horse For Sale, Florida, Spring Hill

    Those are two different ads for the same horse. The craigslist one has the pictures, so that's why I posted it.

    I am going to see him tomorrow morning. I am concerned that he is "already trained" in jumping at 3 years old, though. Any thoughts?

    I don't think I would lease/buy a horse that is "trained" and is jumping when he is three. I know some people do it but I think it's better to wait. He looks extremely tense in the pic of him trotting and his rider in the jumping pic looks rather incompetent about jumping at all IMHO

    Agreed with the above poster. He looks very strung out in the trotting picture. Personally I don't mind if people begin jumping horses at a young age, pending on the growth and devlopment of the horse. I small jump here and there "shouldnt" hurt them. I never liked young thoroughbreds. I find I personally don't have the patience to deal with a more than likely high energy young and green horse.

    Go and visit him. Ask someone to ride him and watch him carefully. Than ride yourself and see how you like it. It all depends on what you are looking for in a horse, and what you know you can handle.

    I went to see him today. The owner never answered my call, and was not there when we went. I saw him in his paddock and he was all beat up.... he has lots of swelling in his pasterns and something going on in the tendon area of his back legs. Nope! NEXT!

    Poor guy. That is just horrible. From the sounds of the ads, she is looking for someone who will lease the horse and pay her while they put the training on him. :( Why can't there be more honest, kind horse people in the world. :,,(
