    Smile Thoughts on Potential Mare [[TB]]

    Hey guys! I might lease this mare, then if I like her, I may buy her! So, I would like opinions on her, I plan on doing hunter or jumper with her, and no, I haven't gone to look at her personally yet.

    She is... 18?
    Thoroughbred mare, mainly does eventing, but I think she has decent form, other than holding her head a bit high.

    Opinions wanted!! Thanks!

    She's cute! I think the lease-to-own thing is the best thing to do! That way you can really make up your mind! She's very pretty! I don't think her head looks held high to me but I don't have enough experience for my opinion to mean anything ;)

    No thank you! Yeah, you never know when a horse is drugged, if they will get along with the other horses, ect. So I would rather spend a few months learning about the mare before forking over the cash. Thanks!!


    To everyone else- I do realize that her legs aren't perfectly straight...

    HI! She looks cute! She looks like she is tolerant, and with a different rider might do even better.

    She's nice. I'm sure she'd go far with a better rider. I couldn't watch all that video. That horse got hit in her mouth so many times, I'm surprised she's still willing to jump.

    That horse is obviously very forgiving, she deserves a better rider. Watching that made me want to slap that girl. Ughhh just because she's doing xc doesnt mean you shouldnt release, or ride properly for that matter.

    OK I have a sort of unrelated question. I see this kind of nastiness on this forum a lot and I really don't get it. You want to slap her? Really? Watching the video many of the clips are stated they were taken a long time ago and it seems to document the progression of horse and rider ... why it was used for a sale video I dunno but that's beside the point.

    The person in the video may or may not be a good rider and they may just be learning. Sometimes the level of judgment on here is ... impressive. It just reminds me how easy it is to hide behind a computer and pretend like you never had to start out and learn or how you never make or made mistakes.

    It just makes me sad :( Especially in instances where the rider isn't actually asking for critique -- this poor girl isn't even here and people are bashing her and saying the horse deserves better. Bleh.

    Agree'd. A simple "looks like a great horse, but the rider could use some improvement', or 'Horse looks awesome, but the rider should release more' would suffice. We where ALL beginners at one point and everyone makes mistakes.

    Otherwise, I think she looks REALLY cute. I love her orange wraps and saddle pad

    I think the horse is gorgeous, and I love the bright orange! She could serve you well. I agree that the rider isn't that great, but we did all have to learn. I'm not that great now, everybody has to start somewhere. No bashing is necessary.
