What do you think of this mare? (PIC HEAVY)

Stella is a jumper that used to be competed in AO/speed stakes classes. My trainer bought her off of a grand prix rider we know for her daughter. She got an amazing deal on stella because she has a low bowed tendon that is set now. She jumps 4'6" courses without a problem. My trainer's daughter wants a car so she is selling her, and I am the one who is showing stella this summer/fall. We were made an offer to trade one of my horses for her and I am not quite sure what to do. I want to compete in childrens jumpers which is anywhere from 3'6"-4'. Stella's age and low bowed tendon make me worried, should I be worried about the tendon? We would have a vet check on her, but I'm just not sure yet.

More info on Stella
Breed: Holsteiner/Dutch Warmblood
Age: 14 (I'm not sure about the age either)
Height: 16.3h
Sex: Mare

I am not on stella in these pics, I am going to see if my mom can take pics next time i ride and jump her

I think she's absolutely gorg!
She looks to me like she may be overjumping in the 2nd and 4th pics, but I'm not expert on jumping!
She looks great, I love how she snaps her legs up.


Showjumping is like dressage with speed bumps!

Well unfortunately I am not getting her now because the day that we were going to sign papers she went back sore. I went to jump her that day and she was a little slow but nothing un usual and then I went to jump her and she wouldn't even go over a x-rail. The vet looked at her and said she was back sore so she is on stall rest now! I am so sad!

I'm sorry to hear that. Is there another chance that you could get her?
