Thoroughbred Prospect - Opinions?

1996 Dark Bay Mare, TB by Mistrel (Private Dawn) out of Dawn On
Kinbally is a 12 yo, 16.2H, TB, mare, dark bay with 4 white socks, star and snip.

Kinbally has had tons of training level show experience at schooling shows with both a young teenager and adult amateur. Consistent scores in the high 60's. She has also had overnight show experience with the annual PVDA Chapter Challenge and annual USDF Adult Team Championships. In 2005, 2006, 2007, and 2008, Kinbally led her team to numerous awards. Currently, Kinbally is ready to show first level and has been schooling second level movements. In addition to dressage, she is a willing jumper and loves to trail ride and hack outside.

Kinbally is an extremely kind, honest, predictable and low maintenance type. No supplements. Front shoes only. Good in group turnout with mares and/or geldings -- not aggressive or bossy at all. Loads and travels with easy. Would fit in well in a lesson program as she adjusts well to different riders. A Pony Clubber's dream horse.

Kinbally is a candidate for TB breeding as she has wonderful bloodlines: Bold Ruler, Northern Dancer, Seattle Slew, Native Dancer. With her quality conformation and movement, Kinbally should easily be approved by warmblood registries for breeding purposes.















SORRY about the super huge photos.

* But this is Kinbally, what do you think of her? She was is 1000$. I've known this horse for a while, and I've known her owner for a while too. She's being sold due to her owner going away to college. Does any one have anything to say about her? Thanks for the input!

I guess my only concern is that if she has great bloodlines, behavior, and consistently places well then why are they only asking $1000 for her? A higher caliber horse with lower pricing usually throw red flags in my opinion (albeit sometimes unnecessary). Just curiosity on my part.

She was, originally listed for 10,000$. But this add is also 2 years old. This is when she was at the peak of her career. Now, she has just been sitting. And her owner just wants her to go to a good home.

She's really lovely, do you happen to have conformation pics of her and a video?

From what I see I like her but she is 'over the bit' and needs to be released a little more and taught to work more off her hind quarters. Fixing the over the bit thing is difficult. The horse needs to learn to raise her neck and break a bit further up at the poll instead of the crest. An over the bit horse is actually not working as well as she could off her hind quarters.

With as long a lay up as this horse has had and the low price, she is worth the risk if she vets.

I know, this add is old. She's been a pasture puff for the last 3 years.

I agree with every word in this post! Exactly what I would have said.
