    It might be the standardbred that is the long legged ancestor. There are almost two distinct body shapes in the STB, a tall willowy body type (very TB looking) and a big muscled and broad bodied STB. She might be from the willowy lines.

    She's a very pretty girl but first photo looks like he struggling to hold her .... And to me she's appears stressed but could just be me...
    Second photo is unusual to but I can't place why...

    However photos don't show everything so may as well check her out 😀😊😊

    Since he is not a purebred where would you show her? You obviously would not be doing breed show so it Throw me a bit when you were talking about showing but looking at this horse which I think would be limited in showing. She looks very small in the photo where she is being ridden
    and that photo was a summer photos she had to be started very young

    Around here it don't matter what breed they are to show in gaited classes, as long as they have a gait. She is 75% Standardbred & 25% Tennessee Walker both "Gaited Horses" Standardbreds are known as pacing horses. Tennessee walkers have a nice slow gait and the running walk. Pictures always make things look small or big, you never really know the size until you see it in person. I bought a goat once and he looked really big from the picture, when I went to pick him up he was way smaller than I thought. I have also took pics of my 15hh and then once I look at them on my computer he looked like a pony, No Joke.

    If she's 15hh that woman has some VERY long legs. The filly, to me, look about the height of the filly I owned, who was rather small (just about 14hh). She LOOKS about the same age also (2 years old)...and my filly was immature for her age too. She could be older of course but I'd really question her nutrition with the way she looks, and why they started her so darned young.

    Personally I would never buy a horse I hadn't ridden first- but that is just me. Good luck either way!

    If you do buy her sight unseen, I personally would have a vet perform a pre purchase exam. Along with all the health questions, ie sound, weight, worms, teeth.. Ask him if she was easy to handle and her living conditions. Good Luck!

    ^This. This this this this this.

    I can see purchasing a horse before riding it: but I get along with 98% of horses, so the thought doesn't shake me that much. But, I'm not sure how I'd feel about purchasing a horse without even seeing it in person. Videos and pictures can hide a lot...
    absolutely you make sure you get her checked out by a vet. That could open up a whole 'nother can of worms.

    IMO, $750 is not a lot of money for a horse. For that much you could buy it and sell it for $500 if it doesn't work out. Plus a PPE would probably cost more than the horse is worth...

    It's a $750 horse, you take it or you don't. If it was a $7,500 then you might have to go look and get a PPE.

    Just be honest about what you want. If you want to go show tomorrow, this is not the horse for you. If you want to spend a lot of time and money on a fixer-upper, then go for it.
