    From the numerous threads you posted on this forum about the mare, you told us never had a vet look at her until after you bought her.

    Yet you knew better, as you posted on this thread that you started.

    I don't think that you should ride her because you will probably never feel safe on her, but I don't see how you can justify calling her "bad" if you safely rode her for 5 months.

    The best kids horse that I ever owned once violently bucked a person off. She kicked the horse hard to try to make her gallop; then she chickened out and pulled so hard on the bit that the horse went straight up in the air in a rolling rodeo buck. The woman flew right off. My poor horse's mouth was bleeding because of the woman's rough hands. I took off the bit, put the reins on the halter, and let her ride home. I never took that woman riding again. That horse safely carried many children for many miles on trails. I kept her until she died at age 27.

    I never called the horse bad, she's not bad she was bred and raised as a yearling to buck. She wasnt safe for five months took three months to get good.

    OP, I'm sorry you encountered a dishonest horse person. It bites that now you are paying for it.

    That said... there really aren't full disclosure laws for horses like there are for people. Horse sellers can, and do, lie. If your dad chooses to sue, he will likely just lose money in court fees.

    If the horse isn't sound and you're riding her... She is probably uncomfortable and acting out. That part IS your fault. You are asking for trouble by riding an unsound horse.

    Actually...unless someone gets hurt, you would be in small claims court - although I have no idea if they have that in Australia. In small claims court, if you could prove intentional misrepresentation, you should be in good shape. Deliberate lying to sell damaged goods is frowned upon. "Buyer beware" has not described American law for a long time. However, small claims courts in the US tend to follow the personal whim of the judge, and not the law.

    The horse was mentally unsound, I kept asking what her physical problem was to the nice lady who owned the horse way before me, and the vet deemed the horse unridable due to extreme dangerous behaviour.

    My dad is going to sue regardless I have allot of evidance, and her previouse owner said she would be able to help me. The previouse owner is angry about the horse being sold to me as a riding horse, the horse was sold to this lady only as broodmare under receipt so I am going to contact cody who breeds the bucking horses for the rodeo and wil have evidance that jazzy was a bronco, unridable and dangerouse.

    My dad is friends with cops and my grandma wants her lawyer to send a letter. She will pay I know where the owner lives she has no money but I don't care she can lose her house or car. I have evidance that this horse was unridable, I will get evidance that the horse was a previouse bronco.

    I hate to say it, but here in the US, just because a horse is bred to be bronc horse for rodeos doesn't mean the horse is dangerous. I know several bronc horses who after their careers were sold and turned into great riding horses. Once was a top notch barrel racer, a couple were fun trail horses, and I know one who's owner started jumping him. No idea how he's doing now though. I myself looked at a few ex-broncs. It sucks that it seems like this person lied to you, and after reading your other post, it sounds like she wanted to make a quick sale, and you were so interested that she decided to go for it so she could get a few bucks, maybe pay off a bill or something. That doesn't make what she did right, but there were quite a few red flags, and you chose to ignore them. Your posts and comments seem to be a little contradictory, first she was starting to do better, then it sounds like someone recognized her, and told you she was "dangerous", so you decided to agree, especially after she acted up after being off for a bit. My first thought would honestly be to get a chiropractor and saddle fitter out, and make sure that the equipment fits properly, and the horse isn't acting up out of pain, then start taking other steps.

    If the seller can reasonably sway the court to believe that she told you to get a saddle fitter out or something (whether she did or not is a moot point), that she cautioned you at all about the horse, and possibly needing work etc, chances are you guys aren't going to get a dime in repayment for false advertisement. Hopefully something can be figured out, but here in the US, it pretty much is buyer beware, and if you bought a horse that was too much for you to handle, no matter what the advertisement was, as long as you weren't injured, you aren't going to see anything, its on you for buying the horse. No idea how it is in Australia, but I'd be prepared. Especially because if she lied about what the horse can do, then she'll probably lie in court too, so no guarantees that things will go your way. Sorry that you've had to deal with this, but maybe next time you look at a horse you'll get a more professional opinion before buying.

    I got the horse a chiropractic vet who did acupuncture and also got the horse many massages, from a qaulified myotherapist. The vet checked my saddle to and said it was fine.

    She is goimg to suffer for what she did to me regardless if she can't get in trouble. Ill ruin her reputation.
