He rode it around and decided to go with it, since it was 14 yr old and was a been there done that horse. He brought it home and the first night he rode it he did ok. Tried to take off right when he got on but my dad got him under control. The next night he rode him, my dad got on and the horse bolted and my dad couldn't get him back in control and ended up bailing and going to the ER with a broken nose, and fractured cheek bone and eye socket. While he was gone my brother got on him and he did the same thing, by brother was trying to put him in a circle and the horse wasn't listening and ended up breaking a rein. And he had to bail too. He got back on and the horse immediately started bucking and threw him off and bucked all the way back to the yard.
Sorry about this novel but it is just so frustrating to have this happen to good people. I mean we do our research before we buy but lately it seems like people will do whatever to make a sale instead of taking their time to make a good honest horse.
