Hey everyone, some of you may have been following my posts about my search for a barrel prospect. Now, my budget is fairly small because I'm 16 and paying for everything myself. I get a $100 a week, so payments are ideal.
I came across an ad for a $200 horse. I contacted the seller and here's what she's told me:
5 year old bay gelding, broke but has pretty limited training.
Walk, trot, lope
Back up, slow but straight
Needs work on leads/lead changes
Started neck reining
Hasn't learned how to move off your leg ds (sidepassing) yet.
Loads, bathes, stands for farrier, leads, worms, ties all good.. so no issues there.
Hasn't been ridden in about 9-10 months, so needs a tune up.
She lives about 2 hours away, and is willing to meet me in a town about 15 minutes from me with him. And she's asking $200.
Does it sound good? Or do you think something is wrong with him?
The lady was very nice, and talks about her horses like we do lol.
Should I take it? She's sending conformation pictures tomorrow morning.
