Smile is this horse worth it

Im looking 4 a new horse and I've found one and I've 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

Thanks

Sorry can't get a pic but he is a beautiful horse

Sounds alright might want to "try before you buy" though!

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!

The horse in all the photos I have he looks very very calm and has a sweet eye I think he might be better than what she has written it to be
And that other horse has been put way over priced so you never know
(try before you buy)

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