    She's so pretty- her color, tail, back, legs, etc. She's a good price, too.

    Do you think her neck is too short?

    Here are some pics of her working under saddle.

    I think she is nice for the price. But im a QH girl so I don't know much about oldenburgs lol.

    She is gorgeous! A really nicely put together horse. Her neck might be a touch short but I don't think so, depends on your personal preference I suppose. She has well muscled shoulders and hindquarters, could use a nicer topline and some muscle=ing along the top of the neck instead of underneath.

    Cool! Thanks for the replies!

    Her neck may be a touch short. In the riding photos, she looks like she may be a little hard to ride(at this time). She isn't able to use herself correctly in any of the photos.

    What I see is that she is not useing herself well--- Like moveingOn said.

    She is a nice looking horse and I think with the right rider she can go far, She is worth a look!

    Why is she so cheap???? That's the first red flag I get..
    But otherwise she is really not spectacular.... I don't really like any of the under saddle pictures and her conformation doesn't scream dressage.
    I have a suspicion that there is something wrong with her physically or mentally if she is (a) that inexpensive and (b) not even in a training level frame at 9.
    Go out and see her a few times, get a thorough vet check and pay the money you save on purchase price to have her in training for 3 months (with a good trainer) if you do end up buying her.

    She has a bone chip. I already have the vet check and xrays. The market has bombed here badly too. She's sound, sane and healthy. She does need some work but the trainer I've found for me has also looked her over and agrees with some work she'll be good. She's sound for flatwork. Which rules out eventing on her, unless I have surgery done.

    I'm really just looking for a second horse to learn dressage on.
