I know someone who keeps buying OTTB's for their daughter, who is 14 and never been taught to correctly collect a horse (just yanks them down into a false frame)... daughter has no say in the matter!

Dp, but I found this just now...
Horse for sale : Miniature Horse

Buckskin and white mini... buckskin? I think not! The "and white" is even debatable :/

That is an equally crappy situation as the possible"kid-in-charge" scenario I alluded to above! Both for kid and horse. Still = cruddy choices being made by mom n dad! (someone should at least suggest lessons to parents of said kid-yanking-OTTB-into-frame (?). Ah, who knows, that's a whole different thread! ; 0)

Ha yeah... I have said OTTB now, not MY horse but I'm riding her. Owner (teenager's mother) is trying to sell her for more than she's worth, and I basically offered to ride her to take her off owner's hands and put in some correct (hopefully!) education to make her worth what the owner is asking... I want this mare but sadly can't afford the price the owner wants.

Then I'd hope your charging them for training her. If they didn't have you to fall back on, they would have to send her elsewhere and pay a pretty penny for it in order to get the horse to a standard that they can get the money they desire for her.

Nobody is going to pay $800 for a lame almost 30 y/o pony... I'm sorry, but absolutely not!
I can't imagine anybody paying anything for that poor ol girl. Here's hoping they see sense and give her to somebody who will retire her and let her out to enjoy whats left of a life that has no doubt been led by kids yanking her mouth off and kickin her in the gut.

Nope, I quite enjoy this mare so working with her is payment enough. Just wish her owner would drop the price to something I can afford...

If you really want the mare, I'd suggest asking for either cash to school or or tell them you'll pay $XYZ for her. If they want to pay you to school her, then you'll be building up the money to put towards her while they wait on somebody to buy their overpriced horse. That's just my way of thinkin anyway

I already offered to do it for nothing but once I've sold my filly I might make an offer... she won't be gone by then, I'm building her up slowly the right way and she's therefore not really going anywhere training wise. Not until her topline and condition have picked up some.

Bep .. thank you for caring enough about this mare to help her. In the short term it might look like you're helping the owner and not getting paid, but in the long run it's the mare that you are helping ..

Thank you.
