Jomamah - Chestnut Arabian for Sale in Brooksville, Florida FL - FREE Ads

thanks.
I almost bought Ice. He's a nice little horse. I told her I would pay her asking price pending vet check. She emailed me that night and told me unless I could pay for him the next day, that some girl was coming with a trailer to pick him up. It seemed very sketchy.

I'm not sure. She got all weird and i think was trying to get me to buy him without a vet check. She said, unless you can get the vet out here and buy him by tomorrow, some girl I've been emailing with about him (who hasn't met him yet) is coming to buy him and is picking him up tomorrow.

Don't trust people who won't let you vet check. She could just be wanting to move him on quick so she's pressuring you. If you really like the horse I would just send an email saying "Unfortunately I will not purchase a horse without a vet check but if this sale falls through feel free to contact me to arrange a vet check time" or something. That way if she's bluffing to speed you along she can email you, save face by saying "buyer fell through" and you can get a check. Also, I don't trust people who ride with thongs (flip-flops for Americans - which it looks like girl is wearing).

I don't now how tall you are but remember Arabs are pretty small. I stopped growing around 13 - 14, but I was already 5'6-7 ish. A 15hh QH would be fine for me - but I'd probably look way too big on a 15hh Arab unless it was a chunky build. The get really fine. Also, is an Arab the best choice for what you want to do? I like them as a breed, but I wouldn't buy one if I planned to do dressage, SJ and eventing.

I like the Chestnut Arab best as well - but definitely take into consideration what Macabre said about energy.

Why don't you make a "requirements list" of what you want? So you know exactly what you are looking for?

Well this would be a step up for me...the only horses available for me to ride at my barn are 14.3 hands and under...except her TWH/spotted saddle horse but I didn't like his gaits and I found him too bulky...

You'll probably still grow a bit...most girls tend to grow until they are around 16 I think.

You shouldn't be too big, but it also depends on weight, and how long your legs are.

regarding the chestnut arab in the ad, he looks like he is not pure arab. Maybe some qh? It's just his whithers and length of back and tail set that are atypical of arabs.
