When your buying a horse, will you overlook any conformation faults if they fit your needs? (In example, my mom purchased her gelding who has crooked legs because he fit all of our other expectations and she liked his personality that much.) I was talking about this with a fellow boarder the other day and just wondered about everyone's thoughts on this, because let's face it, no horse is 100% perfect.
Personally I've always had the thought that if the horse had a minor fault, but fit every criteria I put it through and I liked it's temperament I would go for it, faults or no. Then again, I just pleasure ride and do trail, so whatever discipline the horse likes to do I'm game to try out. (Now if the horse was unsafe because of these faults then that would obviously be a no lol)
If applicable, what if it had any health issues? Just curiosity spiking here!
