    He's okay. Nothing special jumps out at me though. I thought you had wanted a Warmblood anyways, or am I wrong?

    Ringbone is not a condition you want to deal with if you're not absolutely in dire need of owning this horse. Selling as a 'quiet trail horse' means the horse is not sound for much more. My vote?

    Pass! You can find much better horses for that price IMO

    Ringbone will prevent him from doing much other then very very light work and standing in the field.

    The Cob I rode last year had ring bone and it was a lottery as to whether he was sound or not when we rocked up to a show! He could go onto the lorry sound and come off lame. He is now only just sound enough to sit in the field and sun himself.

    So NO he would not be suitable as he cannot do dressage.

    It is how we transport horses here. Like a trailer but a truck instead.

    I'd say big "No". They are honest upfront saying he will not be able to do any heavy work or shows. Frankly he may not be good for anything but be a pasture pet, and I thought you were looking for one to show (if I remember correctly).
