GOT NEW HORSE... Need some help

Okay, as of tomorrow my bill of sale will be mine and I will be the proud new owner of a redish buckskin palomino appaloosa mare. I will get pictures for you guys tomorrow. (sale of Tank fell through, seeing as he got given away sooner before I could pay for trailering lol) Shes really beautiful, and $200. Her back legs are scarred from being caught in a fence, but is sound.
Now, Im going to ask for help, so I make sure I do this right.

I needs tips to help with:
Halter training
Leading
And starting under saddle.

She is halter broke, but doesnt lead to well, and she hasnt had anything done with her for 2 years. She was going to the meat factory, so Im giving her a chance. So, Im going to ask for some help :) She is up to date with ferrier worming and shots though, so thats always helpful. Looking forward to help!
Any tips will be great!

Thanks guys!

I would get a vet check to make sure her back legs are ok, for riding and everything.How old is she?

"a redish buckskin palomino appaloosa"? How much do you know about horses? I would highly suggest finding a trainer that can help you, or at least someone knowledgable in working with untrained horses.

I agree with getting a vet out. You want a good physical done on her, blood work pulled, vaccinations done, and her teeth floated/filed. You should also deworm her with whatever you vet recommends. Keep her quarantined away from all other horses until the vet gives her a clean bill of health.

Now that sounds like an interesting color.....colors. Hmm. Pictures?

I second the trainer idea. A horse that needs halter training as an adult is not something you should take lightly. A $200 horse never really is $200.

Well see its hard to explain her color. Shes red-ish yellow. Shes registered red roan, but shes more golden color. Reminds me of like a buckskin palomino witrh a tinge of red. I acctually know a lot about horses thanks, and I have trainers in my family. Im not doing it completly on my own. She has had a vet check, shots and everything. Her owner is the vet. I will post pictures as soon as I get one sent from my phone.

Also, she is halter broke, but just enough. She is stubborn on the lead.

Buckskin:


Palomino:


Are you just talking body color? Because otherwise, they look different. So the horse is red, but a golden red?

Red Roan:


I just needed pictures for reference. I do it all the time.

Heres some pictures. They arent great because it was from my phone. I posted for help because I do want to try to do it on my own. I have trained horses before, but they knew a little more then Savhanna does. I know how dangerous it is, but she is very calm. Shew has been in a trailer, tied, wormed excetra. She hasnt been completly left alone.

She's really pretty, looks just like my friends appy mare, Dancer. How old is she? Looking forward to seeing how you progress with her :) My only advice is to take things slow and don't overface her with anything. I'm sure you guys will do great together Any questions at all or just need to chat, feel free to pm me :)
