Which rules out eventing on her, unless I have surgery done.

I'm really just looking for a second horse to learn dressage on.
There's sound for flat work, and there's sound for dressage. A dressage horse has to be just as sound or sounder than a jumper. If you want to learn dressage, then find a schoolmaster to lease.
In buying a horse with bone chips you are buying something with very little resale value and the potential to cost you a lot of money down the road.
If the market has tanked in your area then it should be very easy to find an educated, sane, sound horse for much less than it is worth as well.

Good Luck!

I agree...she doesn't know how to carry herself in a nice frame...

Definitely get a vet check, but considering the market is down in many areas, the price may not be because they are hiding anything. I'd say she's worth a look and a ride...

Eta: just noticed the bone chip post...In retrospect, guess you may want to keep looking!
