Personally I wouldn't pay 500... In this day and age people lie a lot I'm not sure I would trust it without a VERY thorough vet check and the possibility that she may require joint treatment of some kind, alterations of feed, special farrier work, etc... Just because a horse looks like it isn't hurting too bad doesn't mean it isn't in a whole lot of pain.
if you're alright with that and you know for a fact that her training is up to your ability then by all means I'd say give her a nice semi retirement home as a beginner horse. If this sounds like it's too much for you, winter is coming and hay is getting more expensive that's a fact so it's very likely you'll find what your looking for at the same price point and no major issues to boot.
life has no remote control hitch them up and drive them your self
