hey, I talked to the owner again and asked for a video of her free jumping before I made a final decision. She hasnt been ridden in 2 years and the lady was rather rude when I asked for the video and was not willing to cooperate. She said that she is very cheap and basically isnt wanting to do any work to sell her. I am running away. Thanks everyone!

if she is that difficult she should be free... good horses are going for very cheap and bad horses are being given away. Great breeding and looking pretty doesn't go very far if you can't ride them or even handle them. I think she is stuck with that one

I think that's probably the best idea. Get yourself a horse that you can have fun with, something that has something of a mind ;)

it think that you made a wise decision not to get her, she looks like a difficult mare in that video and you can bet that that wasnt her straight in from the paddock, also something looks just not quite right about her back legs in the first videeo.

why post a video of the horse being so bad? I guess honesty is good but I bet this is her on her best of behavior
