Thoroughbred Gelding

I have another thread about two mares I was considering, but this is a third option. I REALLY like this horse, and I think the price is pretty good. Can you guys critique the horse? Be brutally honest! (Pictures and Video)

I think he's pretty cute. Are you local to him? I'm in NC. He looks very solid. He didnt seen to mind the horses in the paddocks going crazy :)

But he isn't particularly flashy, but that's okay. I got the chance to talk to his owner, and he just seems like a solid, good guy who is beginner friendly. Did you think the price was reasonable?

ehhh. A good horse like that around here goes for $2500. My gelding in FL could have been sold for $2500, but here in NC, probably worth $900. I think theyre asking too much.

Hmm. The owner was open to negotiations, so maybe I'll talk to her about that.

HOLY COW that's expensive, For that much I will haul you down a sane, nice APHA mare that is beginner friendly and ok on the trails. FYI my cousin is down there in the Sandhills and for that price she has a really nice apendix mare for sale. She is started over jumps and stuff too. I can get you her info if you want it. Aberdeen NC is where she is at.

he's nice looking, but i'm wondering about the whole long rein thing.... the pictures only showed him with long reins and sticking his neck out too. If he was raced (it said something about jockey club) he might still have the racehorse attitude of go fast when there is pressure on the bit.... they would have had to teach him to respond to the seat or something to stop. Maybe i'm wrong and it's just his preference to go on a long rein, but to me it's something that is not trained correctly then. He does seem like a nice horse, and i'd go look at him just to find out. Nice TB's are worth it, I helped train one for 6 months, and they really get attached to you if they like you =)

to me he seems expensive too.... but only because horses are dirt cheap here... where I live there are more horses than people!
