    I know how you feel.
    I hate when people like, give up on the HORSE, like they say 'oooh im selling this horse because it can't jump for crap!" or some other problems that can probably be fixed by training, & really if you got a good trainer it would probably jump great. Ah, some people just don't understand 99% of the time it is, in fact, the rider's fault, not the horse's. Ehh. I know what you mean. :)

    Personally, if someone wants to sell their horse, it's their ordeal, so I would stay out of it and if you care so much then buy the horse.

    Well if you won't take the horse, why should someone else keep it?
    Maybe she is selling it for confo issues, the same reason you don't want it either.

    I was the same way with my ex-trainer's stallion. He did dressage stuff I wasn't able to do on other horses (i.e. Get on him with just a halter, and we'd do just about everything - from piaffes to extended trots to tempis to jumping.. I even took some kids for their first canter on him (with a bridle of course)) he is simply amazing. We clicked. He wouldn't do any of this stuff for anyone else, so it was just... ahh I can't even describe it.
    Anyways, I was going to buy him.. but he wouldn't pass a vet check because of a stifle injury he sustained when he was 3 (back feet slid out from under him in the winter) so he wasn't sound trotting out after flexion tests. However, never took a step lame while he was exercised. And exercise actually made the injury better. He was still able to jump over 4' and excecute all the movements I wanted him to in dressage... but my parents would never buy a horse that wouldn't pass a vet check. Hah, this was back when my parents supported my horse habit.
    He's now gelded and sitting in a paddock doing nothing.
    It's breaking my heart, even now. I go visit him every once in a while when I can, but sometimes I can't even stand doing that, but I know he needs some love.
    I would buy him today if I had the finances to... but I can't take that chance right now because I wouldn't be able to sell him fast if I absolutely needed to if I came into a financial crisis. It KILLS me. He's only 14 or so now...

    So I know what you're talking about, and I still get upset over thinking about it.
