Anyway, I am looking into buying a horse and I keep coming back to these off track thoroughbreds. I have been told to stay far away from a few friends, but I know of a few OTTBs who were amazing! They just simply haven't seen one with proper handling and training after their racing life! Anyway, I have been looking at a few on this website. I like Red Rok Spirit, Bankers Reserve, Poison Ivy, and my least favorite is Mr. Painter. I have absolutely no idea about conformation except I'm not a fan of Painter's neck and withers. I was wondering if I could get some pointers on the confo of some of those horses. Who do you think has the best? A friend said she thought Bankers Reserve was really downhill. He is only 4, so he could still grow a bit, right?
And does anyone else think I'm crazy for considering it? I have been riding for 8 years and I have had experience working with some horses with issues and previous abuse. I helped one horse get through a lot of his fear after he was abused. I do have much more experienced people and trainers that would help me every step of the way as well. Just wondering if anyone had any other thoughts.
