She could go look at and buy what ever horse she felt she had the means to do. She posted it and I have a right to comment on it.
Wow, these comments are totally uncalled for
. Since you know absolutely nothing about this person's life other than a few lines posted on an internet forum, I really don't think you're in the position to judge. Besides, why turn a friendly thread into something bad?
To the OP: did you end up looking at the horse? I do have to say that my arab was ridden much like this mare. They even gave me the running martingale with him. I've had him for about a month and a half. In that time I can now ride him on a loose rein, he has 3 very nice gaits, and he is absolutely bonded with me. I just took the martingale in the house after it sat in his bin for all this time. Point being, I will never use this on him and the difference with just giving him a little space has been AMAZING
. I would not consider this a horrible issue if you are a confident, patient, and calm rider. If the horse were bucking and rearing (which I wouldn't blame her for given the way she is being ridden), then it would be a different story, but she really isn't trying to do anything wrong. I personally would give it a shot.
Also, there isn't anything wrong with bringing the trailer and if you really don't like her you can just bring it back home empty. If you do like her, well it's all ready to go
