What do you think? 24 YO QH mare

I am looking for a nice little horse to take on trails and what not and I found this little girl. She is 24, AQHA registered, and Look at this she is pretty!
Here is her pedigree
Skeiters Kid Cricket Quarter Horse
She was a broodmare (I think she had a lot of babies)
Please be as honest as possible
I love how she looks great for a 24 year old, she seems like a sweety pie
I will ask for some better shots of her tonight also

Definitely doesn't look her age!

Keep in mind at this age no hard riding. A short lope is fine. I used to let my horse set his own pace as he was quite sensible. If he needed to stop and rest that was fine with me.

^I know! My mom came down and was like "Is she 8" I was like "Nope, 24!"
Yepp she is just going to be a trail horse to ride around

I think she looks great. I love how sweet her face is and that kind eye. Her back is beginning to hang a bit but that's pretty much to be expected at this point with her age and the fact that she was a broodie. I'm sure that quite a bit of that could be corrected with some good work under saddle.

There is nothing wrong with asking a sound horse of any age for a decent amount of work, just make sure that they are properly fitted for it. The more you ride her and work her, the more she'll be able to comfortably withstand as she gets in better shape.

^Smrobs that was what I was thinking. I am not going to expect her to go out and do a barrel race the day after I get her lol. She will be muscled up and taken care of. I was told that this is one of the first times she had been ridden in 5 years. They rode her today and it was windy and there were other loose horses where they were riding and she was perfectly behaved. She rides in a snaffle bit and is very calm.

What do you guys think about her pedigree? I see a couple of horses I know, but I am not great with lines.
    06-10-2011, 12:01 AM
Eh, her lines aren't great (nothing of note in several generations), but that really doesn't matter much.

^Ok thank you! =]

A horse of any age, as long as it is sound and in good condition can be expected to have a decent work load. My gelding was nearing 30 and still actively competing in timed events. I know of several members on this board that participate in high impact sports with their 'seniors'.

I think she is adorable. If her personality matches yours and you guys get along, I see no reason to say no.
