We haven't seriously been looking, but we are looking. Thought on these guys (I'm 5'1") and would like to do large pony hunter 3' or green 2'9"

1) something about this pony's hooves bother me...they don't look right...they look too long or something...I'd definitely want to know if it's been on a regular trimming basis
But I love the color and he looks like a great pony!! Good jumper also

2) looks like she's moving downhill on the one flat picture they had...but it's soo small I can't tell. She seems to be a great show pony and has the prettiest color

3) I like this mare's extentions...she's reaching far and looks balanced. I'd like to see a good confo picture and since it said she could jump, some jumping photos

4) something about the neck and face I don't looks way too big for that little body, but that might be the odd angle of the photo...I'd want to see square shots

5) looks like a good pony...but don't think he's worth that they are asking (please note I'm not paying too much attention to what gender they are)

I like the best...but I'd like to see some jumping photos to say for sure since they did say she could jump...definately get more pictures on all...they all look good and would definitely be worth the time to look into

There are more pictures of her and some jumping. I didn't see them before, her jump isn't great.

I just watched the video of her...definately an over jumper...she's a cute mover and looks cute over jumps, but she's not 100% good over them

I'd say either 2 or 5 then

1- Nice color. Yeah, I'm not too fond of the hooves either. That may be an easy fix with some farrier work. I don't really like his head for some reason.

2- Looks very nice, a lot of good qualities, & lots of experience. I don't know the price (it is not listed) but I really like her. She seems great.

3- She also looks pretty good. Looks like she has good confo. ;)

4- I think she has a big head, lol- not too fond of that. :P She looks nice, but I'd need more photos to see more of her confo.

5- I don't really like his jumping picture...something about it. I also agree, he doesn't sound like he's worth that much. I'd like to get some more shots of him to be sure.

Here is another one I found
14.1 3/4 12 yr mare

I loved the 2nd one. :) 5th one look good, but not much confo from pic. I didn't like 4th one much - head/neck look huge and unproportional (may be just pic, but...).

Diana looks okay...I'd also like to see more shots of her but she looks nice.

Personally to me I like # 1 and 2 . It depends on how high you want to jump. How high do you want to jump? Oh and for # 1 someone doesn't like her hooves she could always fix those. Just my opinion.

I'd personally have a hard time paying these prices for an unregistered horse....(ok, let the comments start flyin'!)
