I was worried about a saddle,but I have a passier that seems to fit everything so far....I hooe it would/will fit.
Despite some mixed reviews I think I may go ahead and get her. I think she will look much better with some muscling and weight...and standing even. Her price is reasonable and I am a risk taker :) If I get her (which the transport company thinks she could be delivered mid feb.) then I will be sure to post pics asap :) thanks again everyone for taking the time!

What is her breeding (sire, damsire, etc..)?

Is she branded/registered?

Is she in the studbook?

Before breeding her you need to keep these things in mind. If she is not in the studbook, she cannot have Hanoverian foals.
Lines would be useful for critique.
She is built fine for doing low level stuff, but make sure to get her vet checked thoroughly - she is 15.

Her sire is Goldrush : Goldrush

Her dams side has some registered quarter horses which kind of confuses me,but apparently she is still a Hanoverian. I am pretty unfamiliar with the breed to be honest and am not sure how it is alk worked out. She is double registered as a ISR (sport horse I think) so she would have been inspected I think according to their website...So her foals should be able to be registered if inspected I thinkkkkk. She is sold guaranteed sound and she is sending videos this weekend that I will likely post to see if she looks off.

Like I said I know little about Hanos.....are her sires bloodlines good?
I will have to wait and get more info.... :/

That was my thought too.

She has a pretty face but even with a 7 hour drive I don't think I would buy a horse without seeing it with my own eyes.

Here are her bloodlines....for under $1000 I think she is worth the chance. She looks sweet and I am looking for a good fun riding horse. If I end up breeding her I will definitely find a stud to even out her faults. And breeding her is not certain. And if she turns out to be completely not what I am looking for I can sell her. I bought my arab colt several states away sight unseen and adore him....I know I got lucky

Garbo Hanoverian

I think I put the wrong stallion...her sires name is gold rush,but maybe not that gold rush....can hannos have the same registered names? I am confused on that,but oh well.

I will just decide for sure based on the videos because her bloodlines don't really mean anything to me right now. If I do breed her I will be looking at them more in depth later of course..

She doesn't have "some" quarter horses on the dam side, that's what the whole first three into the fourth generation are! So yes, she's got some hano from the sire, but she's just as much quarter horse. Also, the Goldrush stud you posted doesn't have a pedigree that matches her sire's according to allbreed....just a heads up.

I'm not sure I like her hip angle, especially in the second picture, maybe it's how she is standing or angle but idk. She's really cute however (and cheap!) and could take you through the lower stuff and be a pleasure ride easily I'm sure with the right temperament. Sight unseen always scares me (with anything!) but that's your own choice there. Post the videos for sure!

ETA: She actually has a couple purebred thoroughbreds starting in the fourth generation back, no hano's on dam side that I see though.

This horse cannot be a registered hanoverian because her dam is a quarter horse. That's a red flag if that's what they are marketing her as. I would skip on this horse.
