I agree that she has a longer back. She also seems heavier up front than in the rear end. I dont think her neck looks funny at all and I prefer a high withered horse....saddle doesnt slip hehe I think she just needs some consistant long/low work to build some good muscle.

the videos have arrived From them I gather she is a head tosser and needs to relax her neck. But this lady has had her a year working with her and she hadn't been worked for a full 2 years before that and just used as a broodie. They also have videos of her last baby Lady if you look up their other videos. She looks like a fun project with a good start. I did notice one thing,but I won't say anything yet because I want to see if anyone else notices.... :)

Thats what I thought :/ I wanted to see of anyone picked it up because I thought I might just be over analyzing. I think it is her right fore. If she truly is off I wont be getting her. I could have my vet look at the videos,but I think it is fairly obvious. And since she is "100% sound" I am worried at this point. The price is excellent,but I believe there is a reason based on what I have seen in the videos :/

Yea she's def off! She kind of marches about like she's in pain. And this rider isn't overly handsie so it would probably explain the head tossing and ear pinning. If nothing else very short strided... I think I'd pass. At this point she's not a top broodmare choice or a riding horse without a thorough vet evaluation.

I was going to say something about the hip angle. Her croup is very flat for a Hanoverian, even for a QH. She is kind of cute and her back isn't all that long if you compare it to her neck, it's close to normal, from what I can see.
However, I am always leary of a horse priced really low. That is the seller's dilemna ; If they price too high, no one can buy. If they price too low, everyone wonders why.

With the way the economy is, it's so hard to tell anymore if they're in a financial bind and just need the horse sold, or if there's something actually wrong. The good thing is, there are other horses out there.
