    What do you think of this horse?!

    Ok...so I said I wasn't going to "actively" search for horses but this one came up on an add and I emailed them for a picture...I want to know what your opinions at first glance is...

    Of course I'd go with an experienced person to look at her if I decided to go look at her...the person selling her is willing to take payments and the reason she's getting rid of the horse is because she needs to downsize from 4 horses to 2 before her wedding...

    So...let me know what you think..

    She looks a bit underwieght. I would ask if you could lease the horse for a month or so to make sure she isnt too much for you to handle (it said must have experienced rider)

    I have no experice in conformation, but I can say that she looks sort of skinny to me, especially looking at the hips. And something about her hind legs is bothering me, though I don't know what and it could be the angle of the picture. Hopefully someone cames along soon with a better and more helpful critique!

    I didn't know advanced beginner meant experienced >< How confusing...

    She does look a bit thin...a little bit like the horse I just had on trial... actually she looks a lot like it...but who knows...that's why I'm asking.

    She is definitely thin and in the pic on here maybe kinda post legged? It could be the pic and the fact she is underweight too, I do like her coloring and she looks like a sweet horse. If I went to look at her and did not know to much of horses, definitely take someone with you who is experienced!

    Wow, poor thing is seriously underweight. If you take a look at her get a vet check. And find out why they aren't feeding her. If it's health issues, has she not been wormed, is she being fed with horses that aren't letting her eat. :(

    She does look very very thin. She also has a long back which sometimes makes it diffcult for the horse to be a good riding horse.

    She definitely needs to gain weight. ;) That's not a very good pic to critique since she's not really standing square & all.
    I really like her coloring.

    What I'm looking for is a trail horse that I can lead my daughter around on and get more experience with horses for when I want to move on to a gaming horse...
    I know an older horse is what I'm looking for but it's kinda hard to find one that's just right..so maybe I won't look any further into her...I'm not sure...

    She's very thin and downhill. I'd pass on this one.
