wish did NOT work out! she is crazy!

well as you know I took a horse on trial to think about buying her, well we lunged and rode her today, and she was bucking like crazy! and she kept charging at us! we are taking her back as soon as posible. we are going to look for a gelding trained jumper. so If you know of any male trained jumpers in the area of waynesboro virginia, tell me.

Aw, I'm also sorry it didn't work out. :( But you know what, it was a good idea you at least tried her out, & this is why they have trials. LOL! Hope things go well in the future!

Ride more, worry less.

Definitly do a test ride. Just some advise but you should do what you plan on doing with the horse. If your going to trail ride, take it out on at least an hour or more trail ride. If your going to jump, take some jumps with you if they don't have any and do some jumping.
We just trail ride, but the girls we have now we took on a 4 hour trail ride before we ever started talking money.

wish didnt work out

Hey Im sorry to hear it didnt work out and as vida said you are doing the right thing by takeing it back . And i agree with vida completely when you try the next horse make sure you try it at the type of rideing you plan on doing then you have a lot better chances with getting what you want, and try to ride it a couple hours the first time then go back with out calling the people and try it again just for saftys sake in case it has been doped a little (YES IT DOES HAPPEN MORE OFTEN THEN PEOPLE THINK )

oh I am sorry it didn't work out, but it is a wise decision & if you want to do jumpers a trained one sometimes is an easier way to go anyway. I am sure the right horse is waiting out there for you!
Yeah Vidaloco is right, if you are getting a trained jumper if they don't jump it & let you jump it there is something wrong. There is a lot of things you have to be weary of when buying a horse people aren't always honest so you need to look for the catches etc yourself. The best way to look at the situation when you are looking at a horse is that the seller hasn't told you anything & you are accessing the horse with no previous knowledge just means you have your eyes open for any signs of problems or naughty behaviour!
Good luck looking for your new perfect boy!
