That's a darn persuasive ad! I'm so jealous seeing all these been there done that horses, haha! From the ad this horse seems a lot more finished than the other one you posted (although for useless superficial reasons I think the other is prettier).

I'd have to go see him for myself. The picture of his face doesn't give him a very kind eye but it's not fair to judge personality from one measly picture.

Foe some reason I like the gelding but they both look to be well broke. I left a message about the heels on the mare on other post

What are you looking for in a horse?
What do you want to use the horse for?
What experience do you have?
These are some questions that I would like to know before saying which horse would be the best match for you .

pony horses are definantly well broke horses, have to deal with a 1000 pounds jumping and bucking and throwing fits right beside them. and then all the crazy screaming fans. I like him, nice and hunkey definantly worth a look.

quarter horses.....simply the best

Afterparty- sorry I should have mentioned that in this post, I vaguely mentioned it in the post about the mare. Most importantly I am looking for something SOUND, low maintainence, and FUN! I mostly trail ride and like to camp with the horses. I also want to do mounted shooting (so the horse can't be easily spooked), team penning, and maybe gymkhana just for fun. I have been riding for about 19 or 20 years, mostly doing english games with pony club as a teen, eventing, foxhunting, polocrosse. I've only ridden western for a few ears have never competed in any western events.

The gelding sounds like hes done more. But that is only based off the description, I haven't gone to see either of them. I have never owned a really well broke horse, so that might be a nice change from all the green horses I have had.

Churumbeque- I'll check that message about the heels.

Is it just me or does the gelding's hooves seem to be trimmed incredibly short?

I would do some more checking on the gelding. I like him, but I think that's a little cheap for a been there, done that, attractive 12 year old. I'm also curious as to why this horse is leaving his career as a pony at the track? You can make darn good money with a good pony; and I don't ever think I've seen a track pony advertised FOR SALE as a track pony - people either keep them or someone else at the track snaps them up.

So a little investigation might be in order before proceeding.

I haven't looked at the add for the mare, but I love the gelding white face, makes him different. If the add is accurate he sounds like he could be the horse for you. Definatly worth going for a look!

I'm not sure why he'd be leaving his job. He was posted earlier for $2000 and I had expected him to be sold. The guy has 2 pony horses for sale on canterusa.
