    CW - I rode Grace about a month in my lessons before I decided to lease her. For sure at least ride Belle once or twice before signing anything. You just never know what they can be like under saddle. When I was horse shopping, the sweetest horses on the ground had issues under saddle - remember that gelding that tried to throw me when I went to test ride him? Nicest boy on the ground.

    I just missed her bearing her teeth in that picture, and with the blues eyes she looks quite evil.

    CW, I find that when horses get stubborn if you make them do small circles and figure 8's for about 10 minutes or so, they start listening, at least my horses do they don't like circles much.

    Hahahaa Hunter does circles when he won't load into the trailer, now he usually only has to go around twice before he is heading for the trailer. He loads pretty great nowadays.

    Even if I don't ride her but the owner does will help decide me

    It sounds like she is convienent because she is so close to you. But I am with the others, do not sign anything until YOU have ridden her. And before you ride her, make the owner ride her first. ( very important)

    She could very well be the right horse for you so don't write her off yet.

    But definitely make sure she is rideable.

    CW-Glad you found a horse that may suit you-those pinned ears kinda threw me,but as you can see-other horses do it too, & they are OK to ride. So, take your time, try to bond w/her & do please ride her first before you sign a lease. But, 3 days sounds like a good deal & being close is nice.
