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.
