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.
Totally agree with this post. That said, I have a very hard time believing this is a 15hh, 3 year old. 14hh 2 year old seems more plausible. I've worked for a standardbred breeding facility, so I've seen my share of 'em at all ages.
