    What discipline have you in mind for your new horse?

    I'd pass on the horse you pictured, I am not a fan of the long pasterns.


    Are you sure you want to rescue? You can never resell that horse should something happen in your life. So say the dream comes true and you put all the training into the horse and it becomes a $10k horse, then you face divorce, death, something, you can't sell that horse on, and have to return it for free.

    If that's ok with you, that's ok, just checking.

    This is NOT the case with all rescues... To the OP Do your research and read your contract! Also most rescues are flexible on the rules/regulations and will alter certain parts of the contract providing you can be a responsible owner (most of the time not a problem). If you disagree with the contract offer a resolution. There are too many horses who need homes for a good/legal rescue to turn down legitimate homes cause we "insist the horse comes back for free" or any other scam excuse... JME though
    .. The rescue I work for is nothing compared to people's experiences on this site. Quite sad if you ask me... a good home is a good home despite training, breeding, etc... as long as the horse isn't abused or neglected... JMO

    I'm hoping to do mainly hunters with some jumpers and Eventing thrown into the mix.

    I think I know of something. Is NY too far away for you?

    Not necessarily - for the right horse.

    Thank you very much! I've seen the one from Brandywine before and I'm hesitant because she mentioned a knee chip..

    I would board in Manassas because the board is cheaper and my friend rides there. It's only 45min which is only 10min more than where I take lessons. But During the spring and summer months, I practically live down there; even now I'm there at least 3x a week. My friend has a TB of her own that she's had since a 4yo and can help me out, too.

    I think my top two from what you sent me are
    Virginia Equestrian.com and 5yo 16.1 Mare - $500 (Brandywine) but I'm worried about the knee chip? They said it was removed, but I don't know much about that certain injury. I know more often than not, when I hear knee chip its followed by 'light riding only'.

    Also, could some better trained eyes critique the bay's confo? I rather like her:

    The chestnut has a video from another ad, where she's advertised for more: 4yo Ottb 16.1 Mare

    If someone could critique her as well?

    My grace is for sale. I am more conserned that she goes to the right home rather than just selling her. Here is a couple pictures she is appendix. She is 6 and rides western but shows alot of potential for english so I have been told.
