She sounds like a very good horse indeed. With such a great pedigree, I hope the deal somehow works out and you get possession of this mare.

So that lady didn't call me back all week! I don't think I want to see the horse though anymore, because after we told her she would have to ride it before me, she cancel on us! Kinda shifty if you ask me. I think she was just trying to get rid of a horse she doesn't want by giving it to someone who doesn't know what they're doing. I'm going to try out this new horse I went and looked at the other day in two days though! I'm so nervous! Here is the ad for her, Beautiful Paint/thoroughbred Mare
We're kinda tight for money in horse cost-wise, and her owner said she could do $500 instead of $1000, as well as a payment plan, which is very nice. When I went to see the horse, she was very sweet and very pretty! She has never been cross-tied though, which is kind of annoying for me, because we only have cross-ties at my barn which is at my house. So, if anyone knows any tips on teaching that skill, it would be much appreciated! She also hasn't been in a ring much, and we do have one at my house as well as trails, but I'm assuming with some hard work, it won't be that hard to teach her to ride in the ring. She has a good health history and is getting her feet done tomorrow. What do you guys think of her? I'm worried that she'll be too much horse for me, or something! I'm probably just over-reacting like always though! I'm so nervous for riding her on Sunday! Haha! :)

CUTE! From those photos it does appear that she has a slightly longer back- watch out for that when you visit her.

Definitely look at her, she's gorgeous. Although I am a little worried about the paint's front legs... Make sure to get a good look at them when you see her, because they look.... wrong, to me. The pictures aren't the best, though, as you can barely see them anyway. But I suggest watching them.
As for being worried about her being too much horse, don't be. You have your trainer with you, and you're being cautious and riding her before you commit which is great- take your time, don't worry, and if she's The Horse, I'm sure you'll know. Good luck!

I was thinking the same thing about her legs too when I saw the photo! I think it's just her markings and how the photo was taken, because when I saw them in person, they looked fine. :)
