    Ya I can agree on the soundness issue but I have a coming two in March in training right now for wp. She doesn't grow fast so I'm not worried about her legs because she is starting slow. The plan for her is the big 2 and 3 yr old shows...but she only stays in training if she is physically and mentally able to do it. She might come home in a month and rest for a year. Some horses just need a job when they are ready for it. All ground work and manners are done she is ready for something else. I do understand the waiting part but I feel that it would be a waste to sit in the pasture just to 'finish' growing. O ya and it's just a little bit harder to ride a 4 yr old than a 2 IMO.

    I agree with holding off on backing them until they're four... but that may be partially just because I'm around lots of warmbloods that take longer to finish out and grow like weeds when they're young. Whatever the case, I don't think that holding off on backing a young horse would have too drastic an effect on how hard they are to ride. There are limitless things to do on the ground and with bombproofing and so on. I think it would take four or five years just for me to be content with the amount of groundwork and bombproofing I'd done.

    This said, it's doubtful that the four year old you've shown us had been in as rigorous a groundwork regime as I'm speaking of... so from that standpoint you'd probably have quite a bit more "ground to cover"... *cough* didn't really mean for the pun. ^_^

    My horse won champion at congress in the junior hunters when he was 4
    She is worth the money, she looks like she'd have a very snappy jump
    If she was made and finished she'd be worth 40,000

    I personally don't think the horse is over priced. I think it's a good looking horse and it's a purebred. Having said that I find it interesting the horse hasn't been started and the add doesn't make sense to me, sounds a bit sketchy. They say they don't have time for her BUT yet they are willing to trade for another horse?? My question is WHY are they actually selling the horse? I would be concerned.

    I think this horse just isn't right. The first strike against it is that it is 15.2 and she's not going to get any bigger. HUS horses need to be 16 hands at LEAST. A lot of them are 17+ hands now. She most likely wont move nicely for western because of all the english breeding in her background. She is pretty to look at but she is not even started under saddle. I think in this economy she should be priced lower.

    I admire people that don't automatically jump on their horse at 2. If they have the time and patience, I see nothing wrong with holding off. Especially with a jumping prospect. Hard work on those legs and joints.

    The mare is reasonable $ for her age, breeding, etc. The ad says MAY trade - they are specific for an AQHA or APHA with color. This mare is an appendix.

    As far as needing to be 16+ in the HUS ring, wrong. The horse needs to have abilility vs size.

    I looked at the ad again, but it says for her breed is AQHA American Quarter Horse, and that she's registered with the AQHA.. no appendix there. Unless you can register an appendix with the AQHA

    Her registration number is : X0646493

    The X indicates appendix.

    Oh. I just took that as they didn't want to give out the entire registration number.

    Thanks for clearing that up

    I would not pay more than $400-$600 for her! She is nice but you can get a much nicer horse with a better price tag. How soon are you planning to show??? Do you really want to train her. That price is a bit steep for her with no training. I paid $400 for my aqha mare and she was not trained but that's whtat I was looking for. She now about to start showing hus....take the training time into consideration. Good luck
