My BO and a bunch of other people and I went on a road trip to go look at horses for me and someone else. I tried at least 3 - they were all jumpers. This is the one I really really like and am pretty sure I'm going to buy. She's pretty green which is what I want but she already knows ENOUGH to have fun on. She just needs a little refineing over jumps and the canter. The owner of the stable owns at least 100 horses so she was one of the more unknown ones, but you can tell she's had some training and is pretty healthy. Nice clear eyes, good weight, healthy feet. She had an accident with getting kicked in the mouth by another horse so her front teeth are a little banged up but she can still bite nad nip other horses :P
Her name was aretha, but if Im going to buy her.. im re naming her Nova. Please excuse the position ..... I was pretty tense because he wasn't sure what she does cause he was away when she came in and was ridden.. and the canter isnt smooth lol so its going to need some practice on my part and her part as far as not getting so excited. But she does a lot of her own self carrage I didnt have to do much. The owner thought we made a good match, and my BO pretty much demanded that this was the horse for me LOL!
BUt even though the owner of the stable wasn't 100% sure about her, he was completely honest with what he did know, and didn't hide a thing about the rest of his horses. He's mostly a buy/sell stable.
I tried another one 14.2H Ill have a video of her up soon. But she's a little to short for me, and a little bit TO forward... and needed a german martingale to keep her head down SOOO we decided that wasnt a good choice.
