The one thing that turns me off is the poor quality of the pictures... otherwise I'm a little bit concerned about her temperament. I've yet to meet a 5-year-old mare who's one step away from being bomb-proof. Even our dead broke 20-somethings are more spirited than that. (We can put a 6-year-old who's never ridden on, and then ride them ourselves and have a lot of fun.)
She's obviously a prospect for jumping. Are you looking to jump? If so, she would be a decent choice. But for pleasure, at-home riding and not showing? I wouldn't buy her if that's what I wanted. If I wanted a leisure horse I'd be more inclined to buying an older horse with more experience.
I thnk it's a good deal! I bought my previously psycho green 3 1/2 years ago for 6500! He was 17.3 a 5 year old and completely psychotic and knew nothing! I think its good(: she's pretty too! Posted via Mobile Device
Not a bad deal...But she might have some tendon/hock issues. I don't like to start horses over fences UNTIL they're five...and she is 5, already doing 3' courses...I would have the vet take X-rays. She should be sound, but some horses aren't done growing until they're 5, and there might have been some damage done. Always better to be safe, than sorry. Good luck finding your horse! :)
Yeah we were about to buy stormy a fabulous horse....in CA. We weren't able to go check him out so we needed to have a vet check. The vet checked this perfect boy out and guess what? He wasn't sound.....we didn't get him

Very true. Getting a vet check is a MUST for buying a horse in my book! Posted via Mobile Device
Deffinately go out and check the horse out yourself! See if you can take her for a ride.. and decide from there... take into account your personalities... and if she seems drugged when you check her out
