Red face What do you all think of this mare and how much would you charge for her?

I'm interested in this mare and I really think she is perfect. I doubt I'll outgrow her anytime soon and I think she would be perfect to help me along with my riding,
But what do you guys think about her?

Confirmation etc.

Her AD.

"Daisie - A very solid mare who is very kind and genuine. Daisie hacks alone and in company, has hunted for 2 seasons and is very quiet and simple to ride. Always snaffle mouth, she has successfully competed showing, sponsoured rides and unaffliated showjumping. Very good to clip, box, shoe, catch, hose and with dogs. Daisie is happy to live in or out and never gets flustered. Ideal for a nervous rider or more experienced rider"

Age? Breed? Size? These things are important for a price.
Could be a 1000.00 horse or a 10,000 horse

"she is ideal for a nervous or more experienced rider"? That doesn't make any sense. If she was ideal for a more experienced rider then they would hopefully not be a nervous rider. That doesn't make sense.

This horse does not go as great as they try to make it sound. She looks like a hot horse who needs a more experienced rider. She runs into her canter, she twists her body over the fence and doesn't stay straight.

She is a very flashy horse and has potential. I don't know what exactly you are looking for or what your ability level is, but this horse is going to need some work.

I think they mean like she'd be perfect for a variety of riders. And she knows how to react to certain types. Like she'd be laid back and a packer for a nervous beginner, but if you have experience, she'll move more forward and give you a good ride. (That's just what I got out of it.)

And I think she's cute! :)

I agree with pepper. Looks like this horse has a lot of potential in the right hands, but needs a lot of work.

She is not quiet with her head at all and seems to look around a lot, she could use some work over fences (im certainly no expert but even I wouldn't take this horse over such a solid, high wooden fence like the triangle thing).

I would pay around $1000 for her, it kind of depends how the market is around you though. To me a grand is a bit at the lower end of the price spectrum for something sound to ride.

She's cute! Depends on what you are looking for. She seems pretty green to me too and like she needs a strong, firm hand. If I wasn't extreme confident and patient or if I wanted a horse that I could just get on and go without worry I would probably pass.

She's cute though! I don't know what the prices are like where you live so I can't guess :)

I think she looks good.

You said you wanted a horse that will help you along with your riding, and, I'm sure it's not what you want to hear, but I don't think that would be this particular horse. This horse looks VERY green. To an untrained eye she might look good in the video, but that rider (who appears to be rather experienced) is really working to make that horse perform well. She almost refused every fence she was taken to (and did refuse one of them but the rider made it look good) and that rider had to really sit down and drive her on to the fence and then be right there to take her back on the other side because she was coming out strong too. The horse is really driving at the bit and they have her nose clamped down in a flash and a rather strong grip on her so for a green or intermediate rider she might be a little too much to handle. I see mismatches all the time with horse and riders and people get too caught up in appearances and feelings to really dig down deep and admit that the horse might not be a good match for them. I'm not sure of your riding ability, but I think that if you buy this particular horse you are going to be spending a lot of time training and really bringing the horse along when it sounds like you want a nice, quiet schoolmaster type mount to bring your own riding along. Not sure how old you are but you will have your whole life to get a green horse and bring it along. Do yourself a favor now and buy something so that you can become the best rider that you can be while you are learning. Hope this helps. Don't be offended. Just offering what I saw.
