Smile is this horse worth it

im looking 4 a new horse and ive found one and ive emailed the owner of
the horse heres what was writen + im a beginer/inter rider and i can be a bit unconfident

arabian gelding 8yrs and is broken 2 saddle been 2 pony club and taken 4 endurance rides a bit spooky on trails and has reared once,his name is Poede Charmed One he is grey and will need a firm hand he is 14.1 hh
and is a bit of a sook on the ground,the owner has only been riding 4 a yr and has had no probs put still is a lil pushy
my parents like it a part from the rearing part

If you're unconfident (even if it's only sometimes) then I don't think this would be a good horse for you. I don't mean to sound rude, but this is a horse that could easily take advantage of an unconfident, beginner rider. It would be better for you to find a "been there done that" sort of horse that's older (probably around 13 or 14+) and is a school master. You need something you can build confidence on and I do not believe that this is a horse that will do that for you.

I think your statement "i can be a bit unconfident" along with the seller's discription of the horse needing a firm hand and being pushy on the ground make this a bad match.

You also have to consider that most sellers understate horse's problems in a sale ad.

That email sounded very confusing and contradictory! Glad you found a nice horse for yourself...I've just bought my first and I wouldn't have looked at that one!

Ditto, regardless of the rearing a few spooks will really make everything go down hill fast
