would it be wrong?

So a lady at my barn knows im looking for another barrel horse, or prospect really. She told me about this gelding her mom has for sale, whose started and sounds like a nice horse. Well my friend is looking for a barrel horse too, or so she says. She jumps from barrels to english alot and just about a month ago sold her horse to find something better. But she says she's looking for a barrel horse right now. My budget is quite a bit higher than hers, so I told her about it instead cause for what she can pay there's not going to be so many nice horses. Well there was a show yesterday, I offered to go pick her up and bring her to the show and afterwards we'd go check the horse out. Show was at my barn, and only about 20 minutes from the horse. She's to young to drive and her dad is busy alot so I've offered to take her to look at a few horses. Well she never acted like she wanted to go so oh well. She didn't even remember the price of the horse, and the lady said she didn't act real thrilled when she told her about the horse. She acted interested while talking to me, but hey I offered to go out of my way so she she could go look at him. Now id kinda like to go see him for myself because he sounds like my kind of horse. I would just feel bad doing so...

Why feel bad? If you like the horse, check him out. Her loss.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Ditto! Life is too short to be wishy-washy, let us know what you decide.

Why not start by asking if she is interested in him, if she is, then you'll have to decide what to do, if she says she isn't interested then you can move forward without having to worry

When someone is really interested in something you usually can tell. If she doesn't express too much of interest and you liked the horse then just go for it!

I wouldn't feel bad for 1 second. If you don't go look you will never know and if it is a nice horse someone else will snatch it up and niether of you will get it. If I were horse shopping as a teenager I would be walking there to see it if needed, bugging my parents or jumping on your offer in a second. But when I set my mind to something I get it.

Why would you feel bad? She obviously doesn't care. I mean really, have you ever had to be "talked into" to go look at a horse? If she was really interested she'd be up your bum ready to go to the show with you to see him. Her loss, go for it!
