I know someone in vic, that was selling her horse for 1 thousand somthing, and has competed in shows, and can jump, and she was only selling her because she (person) had a knee surgery, so there is horses out there that are experianced but sold cheaply due to circumstances

If your dad has his heart set on this horse, and the horse is not dangerous or lame, and he is paying, maybe you better cooperate. Dad may lose interest in the horse thing if he gets put off.

yea so I have to be careful, because if I say no we shouldn't look at this horse than he probably will get put of at looking for horses for me. I think I should check out the horse.

I asked to get pictures of the horses feet. So if they are decent good feet than its worth having a look.

You sounds like you probably could handle him. Try not to think of it as 'if I don't get this one I might not get any' though. That will make you think you like him, when you might not deep down. Go into it thinking as though you've got all the horses in the world to look at. I would try and get the price down a little though if you do decide to go for him.

Since I was bored and love window shopping, I decided to have a look around for you for other horses to check out if this one doesn't suit you xD

No idea if any of these match what you want though. But maybe show them to your father and say 'Hmm, maybe we should look at this one if the gelding doesn't work out'. Show him the other options so he knows you're going in with an open mind.
Grey Part Arabian Gelding - Nice and chunky.
Grey SB Mare - If I had the money, this mare would be mine RIGHT NOW. She's young, so you'd be able to make her into what you wanted.
Stock Horse Mare - Could be a prospect if you want something a bit more challenging.

I have to say though, cheap Victorian horses seem a lot more difficult to come across than cheap New South Walers!
