What to do with the agressive horse?

HI everyone thanks for checking out my post. My friend is interested in a horse from a lady that i know but im concerned about the safety factor. This mare is 7yrs old and is being sold because she pinned another mare and beat her so baddly the beat horse almost had to be put down(ruptured uterus). From what i know she hasnt been agressive toward people. The lady is willing to give it a trial run to see if the horse works out but i wanna know if its worth trying. My friend currently has no horses and if he gets this one it will be alone. My friend is a little timid so i dont know if the horse will be too much. Is there any way to calm down an agressive horse or any way to get them to stop agression to other horses.

P.s. this is an alpha type horse

If he is timid about horses, it will become a dangerous situation really fast. This horse even IF considered will need a strong hand, and someone that can show him who's boss. IMHO NOT a good idea.

Why would she choose this type of horse? There are hundreds out there that would be a better choice. Why CHOOSE heartache and danger. It'll come on it's own soon enough.

The reason is the horse is FREE. bad reasoning but for someone who has low income but just enough to care for a horse they feel they cant be picky choosy

there are tons of free horses right now that are safe, useful, and young. your friend should pass this one up for something better.

Like the others have said, not a good idea. If she beat another horse that bad, I hate to think what she could do to your friend.

the cheapest part of the horse is the horse. Seriously if you cant afford to buy a horse you cant afford to take care of one.
