Second photo is unusual to but I can't place why...

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

Yeah there's something about the second picture that I can't put my finger on either. I do think its strange that both people are wearing matching outfits, but that's not about the horse

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.

It's a buyers market out there. Plenty of horses that are in good flesh and already seasoned for under $1000. Unless you can see it in person I'd pass.
You'll be 6 months feeding this one up before you could ride her. She does look young to me too.

I agree about this filly looking stressed in the first photo, and THAT points to the trainer. You know, when it comes down to it I don't like her. If indeed she is a 3yo, I would like to see a more substantial rib cage on her. She looks too delicate to be a good physical specimen and this from someone who loved her Arabian, "Corporal" (1982-2009, RIP) who had a more proportional frame that this filly does, when I bought him as a 4yo.
TWH's, who have Percheron in their pedigree and TWH-crosses should also have substantial bone, although people started breeding them to look like an Aktel Teke a few decades ago, to their detriment.
I'd say, pass. I also don't like the meeting 1/2-way. **shudder** You do that when a friend is transporting for you say, when you are moving out of state, NOT meeting at a rest stop or some other place with a total stranger.

I talked to the person that sold her to the guy that's selling her now. She told me everything about her. I found she was not gonna be the horse for me, so I am gonna spend a little bit more money and buy the right one i'm looking for. I wasn't 100% that I was gonna buy her either.I really don't trust some people. Thanks everyone who commented.

That's what I am gonna do. I have $1500 saved up for one, so i'm sure if I wait long enough the right horse will come along.

He can rack. I was showing in the Juvenile classes, like Juvenile Country Pleasure, since i'm gonna be 18 next year i'm not allowed to show in those classes anymore. There is only two class I can do with him and it would be Ladies Country pleasure that they just added that this year and Open Go As You Please. I'm not going to buy the mare I posted about I am going to find something that suit me.
