    She said that she's happy to pay 950 at the most so I guess my mum will have to be happy with that

    Good price, if you're comfortable selling a horse that's been vetted lame as a jumper... Not a position I would want one of mine in.

    Can you post pictures of her feet from the front and from the side? You are likely describing typical heel pain as in 'Navicular syndrome'. Most likely, keeping her toes very short and rolled will help more than bar shoes.

    And by all means, get a different Vet's opinion. It would be nice to contact the Vet from the previous owner and see if this horse was actually diagnosed with any foot or leg problems. Aging a horse is not that difficult. Any good horse Vet or old horse trader should be able to do that for you.

    I can't remember how the mare was passported - did it not give the previous owner on it or was she sold as 'from Ireland' where they didnt enforce them until 2011
    Trouble is even if the potential buyer isnt being totally honest with you all the time you have the horse its costing you money to keep her
    I'm attaching a link to some info on what they call the Galvaynes Groove on horses teeth - now its isnt 100% reliable but its does give a rough idea of age and is really simple for you to check yourself

    We don't actually know if she has been vetted lame because this is just what the loaner is telling us. She was never lame after jumping with me so I don't know. The loaner was trying to get the price down before she even saw her so my mum thinks it's a lie but then again we never had her vetted because my grandad trusted the people who sold her to us. Like I said she's always been sound with me no matter what we are doing.

    Cherie she's about 2 hours away at the moment so I can't take any pictures

    Edit: Jaydee sorry I didn't see your post. She doesn't have a galavayne's groove

    Have you actually checked these people out?
    I don't know what to say - you need to sell the horse and they might be your only chance but why would someone want to buy a horse with all those problems they are claiming to have found?
    Your tack and rugs are probably worth nearly as much as they're offering.
    Why not get her vet checked and put her in Leominster or Malvern sale if she does prove sound?

    Oops, sorry. In your first post when the lady said she would have her vetted, I thought that had been done and the soreness and light hacking was the vet's opinion. Is that the lady's opinion, then? The one who wants to buy her?

    If its true your not going to get much at all. But red flags pop up when someone wants to buy a horse like that, I would have your vet look at her and determine if any of it is true or not.

    I know she might be the only one but I'm worried about what she's going to do with her. At first she said she was looking for something to do shows on and then she decided she was just going to hack and then when she came to to see her she said that she was going used in lessons for some beginner rider she knows. She keeps on changing what she's doing with her and complaining about the price. My grandad said that we might end up putting her in an auction or something but I'm not too keen as most of the horses end up going to slaughter.
    My grandad was shocked to find out that the saddle is worth more than the actual horse

    WSArabians- I think it's just her friends opinion

    Oh, okay. Well, in that price I would get her checked by a vet and a certificate filled out.
    They may be trying to get a deal on you. Honesty sometimes falls the way of common sense and responsibility.
    You should be able to get a fair idea of her age by looking at her teeth, though.
