I helped sell a registered QH with impeccable breeding for a friend years ago. She was sold as a broodmare ONLY, no riding, with a foal by her side and bred back. Broodmare only,NO riding period. The mare had thrown previous babies that were sweet, and trainable for anything.
Anyway, she was sold with a written signed contract about being unridable and a broodmare only. The new buyer knew and signed the contract, was told by me and the seller numerous times about not riding, broodmare only.
New owner bought the 3 in one package for a great price. Was happy as a clam that the mare was so docile and sweet, her babies were sweet and loving and gentle and easy to train.
Guess what? The new owner decided that there must be some mistake, that surely this mare could be ridden, that the seller was just being silly. Well, she saddled up this mare and promptly got thrown, bad enough for a concussion, ear damage and some vision damage, plus broken arm. She tried to sue the seller. Basically the judge threw her out of court, she had a signed written contract stating the horse was a broodmare only, so when she decided to ride the mare, she was taking her own chances and therefore seller was not liable.

In this case with the OP, when a seller(and everyone else on this forum) honestly tries to tell a buyer the horse is not a good match for whatever reason, or tells someone "broodmare" only, then I think the OP is out of luck. She figured she knew better than the seller about the horse and lost.

I had to stop reading at this comment from the OP :

She is goimg to suffer for what she did to me regardless if she can't get in trouble. Ill ruin her reputation.
Can you even hear yourself? Take a chill pill and chalk this up to a lesson learned. The horse was not that expensive and this mistake is on YOU.

If you insist on going through with a lawsuit I highly recommend you delete your posts and account. Horse Forum comes up high in Google search results and every single one of your posts in this thread and the others you have posted here are very damaging to your case.

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 dont 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.

In this thread, your horse is certainly not mentally unsound, though you are told you are accident waiting to happen. Your mare is extremely tolerant and safe.

You did post in an earlier thread after purchase that your mare is unfit for riding because she had been a broodmare. That is something that could have been determined previous to purchase during a PPE.

My guess is that the OP won't be back, since none of us are siding with her whole "she done me wrong……" mentality. At least not the THIS thread. She probably will wait and start another thread the next time this happens.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......

That horse is by far a saint in that video. My own horses wouldn't tolerate some of that stuff.

She is absolutely NOT "mentally unsound" here...

By looking at your other posts and videos, OP, you are not going to have a leg to stand on in court. I showed my mom (a lawyer and horse person) this thread/your videos, and she actually laughed. You have never fallen off of this horse. You were able to ride her after she was off for a year. You threw a tarp over her head and she didn't flinch. I'm not thinking that this horse is a "ticking time bomb".

Also, in this thread (My Journey with Horses), you said you want to "sell her in under a year and hopefully make a little money". How is that at all different from the seller having bought her for $300 and then selling her to you for $1200? It seems to me that she obviously did a lot of work with the mare and so the price would be justified.

There is sooo much to read here so a lot of it didn't go quite in so if you don't mind I have some questions and if i say something that has already been cleared I apologise in advance.

The Horse I looked at to buy yesterday:
In this thread you put up a link to her add. The link says that she is a "lovey quiet mare". If you were not told about any rodeo past (if she indeed had a rodeo past) then you will get something in court because she was not as described.

However I don't like the way you are treating her. Ok you did mind her go through the basics like back teeth ect and are feeding her but you are really giving up with out a fight. It is like as some one previously said you are treating her like a toy. It stops working you try basic things like turning it on and off again ect but then after a short time you stop trying to fix the toy and throw it in the bin.

The fact that you are considering putting her down after such a short period of time is sickening to me. The amout of ponies we have had who have been hard and all bar 1 who was declared clinicly insane were all turned around with TLC and a firm set of ground rules for manners. I can give examples galore on demand. All you need do is ask.

If you have let her get away with bucking what on this earth is going to stop her trying again??? Bucking for those who get away with it is a great and fun way to get out of being ridden. And if they are not told it is wrong then how are they to know.

Things aren't going to change over night. And you do need to keep at it even at the point of giving up. Her improvements aren't going to be visable to you as they only happen little by little so mabey take a video every while to compare and if you are doing it right you should see a difference.

I don't think this mare is a right off as when you went to go see her there are pics of you or some one else riding her bare back and if she was a right off you wouldn't have been on there for long enough to take a picture before she bucked you high in the air.

I hope you might reconsider and either work hard to get a result or sell her to some one who will.

Good Luck in court and I hope your mare gets what she deserves.

From the video she looks like a lovely, incredibly patient horse. She also looks like she's possibly a QH, she doesn't look anything like what most broncs do, at least not here in the US.

Something I observed was that she has shark fin withers, so tack fit can be a bit of a nightmare. Id personally have a second saddle fitter look at her, as well as a chiro.
