    Potential Buy? Opinions needed (:

    http://tinypic.com/r/o58hp1/7

    This is Liberty. Her owner is a good friend. My friend doesn't jump and needs a western horse and I agreed to come ride Liberty and if I like her buy her. I need a horse that will jump (since Blue is a meanie and steps over it) and this horse has potential I believe. What do you all think? Would she be awesome as a jumper, eventer, or hunter?

    No I'm keeping both horses I'm just going to use Blue as a trail, possible barrel/pole horse. He enjoys western more than english and this horse enjoys english more than western

    I like her! I think she's really cute-looking. She looks like she has a smooth jump and canter and she took care of your friend too.

    It is really - REALLY - hard to judge a horse's potential with a rider that doesn't know how to do a certain discipline. Your friend is more or less along for the ride, and the video doesn't show much more than that the horse is a saint, and seems quite confident towards the jump. The jump is really quite small, and most horses would be able to canter over it like she demonstrated.
    A better test would be to put her through a proper jumping chute, or get the help of a trainer to assess her in person.

    ShutUpJoe - No one could take the place of Blue! He's my baby and I'll never sell him I just think he'd enjoy western more than he enjoys english. He's too lazy to jump. It takes awhile to get him to jump it properly.

    Romantic Lyric - Yes this is what I thought too. I think she'd have so much potential as a hunter and hopefully move up as a jumper. She's 9 so she has plenty of time for showing!

    I agree, I'm looking at the horses forwardness to the jump and how well she clears it. Obviously she needs work. But I am loving the forwardness and how smooth her jump is. With a rider like myself that knows how to jump I think she'd do well. My current horse refuses right at the last second or steps over it so what Libby has is a major plus for me. This is the only horse I have found in my area that will even consider a jump.
