Sick of me yet? :) 12 yo. Appendix QH gelding

He sounds dreamy and I have a crush on him. Thoughts?

has a lot of muscle on the under part of his neck - seems that he's definitely not working through his back at all - his tail is also set on kind of high.

he does seem safe though, with all of those stupid tricks they're doing on him....and i like his eye.

Is getting him to work through his back something that would be easy enough to do? Is a high set tail something to worry about or just something you noticed?

I did realize that none of those shots show his confirmation without tack or a blanket. I will request or take myself some pictures sans blanket/saddle.

getting him to work through his back won't be "hard", but it will require a lot of effort on his part, because he doesn't have the muscles to do it yet - he's just gone around with his head up on the forehand (nothing wrong with that if you're just pleasure riding)

tail set kind of high - it's just the way he's put together, and won't affect performance at all.

I don't think that he's too awfully low in the back - but pictures with out tack on would be good to have :)

If I ended up getting him I'd need tips on how to him work through his back end.

Still waiting on more pictures; I may to take them myself :)

Horse you are looking to buy

The horse you are trying to buy his name is Native Greyace right?, I used to live on the property with NIcole and her fiance Matt. They live in tustin. 16143 21 mile road. I used to live there as of last week. He was sold to her free as a 14 yr old first of all, and has a intese rearing problem. He will rear everytime you tell him to do something he dont want to do. LIke for instance.. puddles, or going a certain way down a trail. He was given to her for free becuase he reared and flipped over on his previous owner in the arena for a barrel race. Just letting you know because i read somewhere on one of your posts that your a first time horse buyer. So when you go to ride him make sure you take him around instead of around the pasture where she will have you ride becuase he does tricks. Just so you dont waste your money. Please do not bring this up to her, as of we already have our problems toward each other. Just letting you know, but she may of already told you this. He is very agressive in the pasture too.

Whoa...small world. And I guess that's his registered name, that would make sense. And that is the name of the woman I've been corresponding with. Well, that's disappointing. I don't even know that I'd want to waste my time driving 1.5 hours to test-ride a horse that rears like that. She said he'd "pop" if his rider wasn't confident, but nothing about rearing and flipping over on someone.

Thank you for the warning.

native greyace

he is not registered. He is grade. Father was a appy mother was a quarter horse. The people never registered him. He rears very high. like a good up in air no less then 4ft rear. He is very sweet. But just not a very everyone safe horse. I left her property because when i was on vacation she tied my 3 yr old to a tree all night becuase it kicked her mare..... it was not a big scratch at all.. and threatend to sell all of my horses. So i moved.. unforunatly becuase the place is really nice. but your welcome for warning you. I just thought it was ironic that the first topic i looked at was that... im new to this forum. Small world lol.

Dang....man, I'm bummed. She sent me more pictures and he has a kind eye and is very pretty. But 4 feet in the air is no joke. She never said he was registered (unless calling him an appendix is registered). She said his sire was a TB...and honestly, rearing doesn't sound safe for ANYONE.

You're SURE it's the same people/horse? I guess it would tough for it not to be. What's the horse's barn name that you're thinking of? (I'm just double checking, I don't doubt your story).

horse for sale

When i was there she was calling him Ace. She put together Native Greyace because she was calling him Ace and a horse with a name that sounds registered sells faster... and Native makes people think of native dancer and thats a nice throroughbred bloodline, so that is where she got that one. Do not get me wrong he is a very sweet horse! I was just making sure you knew. He would rear with nicole when we would make him go through puddles, or back up. He does it almost imediatly when you ask him to back. He does it less with nicole than he does with her fiance. But we used to laugh about his rearing becuase he is so good at it that it is almost like he has another gait... walk, trot, rear, canter. It is really smooth and is good at it, but i just would like to know if it was me instead of wasting the gas money. But it may not hurt for you to go and look at him. Just do not tell her what i said.... She rides him usually with a tie down but it dont stop him. so i think she gave up riding with it. he does not rear to go home or anything he just rears if he wants to go a different way down the trail. he was used in barrels before. That is when he flipped over on the girl... that is why nicole has him. We met the lady at a mcBain Gas station and she litterally heard her talking about horses and said i have one you can have and brought him over the same day just for ten bucks in gas money. That lady had him sence he was born. But she did not like riding with a saddle on him becuase he would rear and she did not want him flipping over and the saddle horn going into her stomach like it did to her daughter. The last time someone came to look at him he did not rear... but the did nothing but go up and down a fence line by the pasture. There is a trail there. If you do go you should ask her to have him back or go for a ride so you can see. She may of gotten him to change.. but i have only not been there sence last week. I really feel bad becuase i dont mean to be mean to her or anything, so dont think im bad mouthing her... I just wanted to let you know.
