Potential horse..... yet again, hopefully this one will be it!

So here is another potential horse, I am really hoping this one will work, she has done everything that I want to do. She is almost finished on the pattern (just started adding speed) she has been started on goat tying, breakaway roping, poles, she has been used as a ranch horse for brandings, she is a seasoned hauler (as in she has been hauled to many jackpots and rodeos) so I could finally have that horse that I don't have to teach and I can just get on and ride. Anyways here are the stats on her.

Name: Truly Sweet Breeze aka Cricket

Age: coming 6 years old Truly Sweet Breeze Paint

Gender: mare

Breed: breeding stock paint (un-colored paint)

Height: 16.2 hands tall (the person riding her is 6 foot 2)

So here are some pics and videos of her being worked on the barrels.

Someone else must have been looking at this horse too. I have seen those vids before somewhere .

Anyway, her confo is pretty good (though her feet need done). In the vids, she doens't look that bad. In that first vid, there are some parts where she seems to be resisting the bit. Also, I would love to see some vid of her being ridden with loose reins. In all those videos, they kept direct contact pretty much the whole time. And I really wish they showed some video of her walking under saddle. You can tell a lot about a horse's temperment by the way they walk with a rider.

Other than that, she looks pretty good. From the ad, she sounds pretty well travelled and pretty versatile.

Funny story: I checked this thread out earlier and that was my thought too! I've met horses that look totally calm trotting and loping but if you ask them to walk....

She's a pretty girl! I'm also envious of her lope...It looks really smooth and snuggly. Heehee

Lol smrobs and wallaby, I had her on here once before. The only reason I didnt get her then, was I thought I was going to get a diffrent horse (but it didnt work out) and since she is still for sale, I want to give her a shot this time.

Overall I like her except that there is something about her left front leg that bothers me. It may be the way she is standing or needing her feet done but it just looks off somehow.

Ya I agree with you iride. She needs her feet done ( the owner is getting those done next week) and I think she is standing on a rock, so its making her look that more awkward. But im also worried that her leg is crooked.... I asked for some more pics of just her front legs on even ground, so I can see if that makes a diffrence at all, or if her leg really is crooked. And if her leg is crooked, that is really going to suck, because I will pass on her then.

Even if it is just slightly crooked (though I don't think it will be after she has her feet done and is standing on solid ground), that may not be a reason to pass on her. Provided she passes the vet check, there are undoubtedly millions of horses that work their whole lives on crooked legs and stay sound. But wait until you see the pix after her feet are done to make that judgement. I wonder why nobody ever thinks to stand the horse on concrete for the confo pix . That is the ultimate flat ground and there is no weeds or grass to hide the feet.

I know smrobs! I mean you would think people would take confo pics on even ground. Its like they just don't think I guess lol. That is true, I know of a really good barrel horse here in Prineville that was pigeoned toed but he was a 1D Barrel horse. That's why im not going to rule her out just yet, im going to wait to see the pics of her on even ground. I am going to definantly get a vet check no matter what, wether her leg is crooked or not. It just worrys me, especially with barrel racing, since it is such a demanding sport I need her to stay sound for a long long time. I hope that she is just standing on a rock or something.

I know the owner has a 12 year old sister that rides her around, and she throws kids on her all the time, so I think she is pretty calm. And if she a little hot, it doesnt bother me, I like the horses that are a little hot (call me crazy).
