    Finally May Have Found One: Possible Buy

    So, last time I tried to buy a horse--I also posted her in a Possible Buys post--someone on the forum bought her the day after I saw her .

    I've moved twice since then and am in the process of selling my MFT gelding so I can afford a better horse that will suit what discipline I want to do. I'm getting a job in March--The day after my 16th birthday I start :P--so I will probably have to wait until then to purchase a new horse but I started looking anyway.

    Blue Roan Horse

    After years of looking at horses I'm hesitant to say that "I've fallen in love with him" but really, he is a really nice in progress horse for what I'd like to get into--reining, cutting, competitive trail, along with the occasional fun show--.

    He's a good age, sounds like he is reasonably trained, not to far away and the price is to die for.

    What do you guys think of him though?

    I do wonder why they are selling him so cheap although I couldn't find anything in the ad or video that was a huge red flag. He does seem to pull on the bit quite a bit and not flex but my trainer and I can fix that pretty easily. I've had to do it for all my horses .

    Also, as a prospect for what I want to do how do you think he scores?

    Any reply is greatly appreciated but please keep it constructive and polite.

    I only saw one photo of the horse. Have you ridden him? He looks nice from what I have seen. I am going to guess that the reason his price is low is that he is unregistered and did they say "unregisterable"?

    There is a link to a video of him at the end of the ad to see him more but yeah, there's only one picture :P.
    I haven't ridden him yet nor even inquire yet. He lives about a three hour drive from me so its a big decision that has to be made to go up there.
    That makes sense now that I think about him not being registered. They didn't say anything about being unregister-able although I will ask. I've never registered a horse before, what is the process for one as old as him?

    For older horses registration fees can be incredibly expensive.

    Go to the breed association's website and it should give you all of the information.

    IF you like him don't worry about those papers.

    He is a great mover. I would bet that he is low prices because he needs an experienced rider as well. That could be because he is really sensitive. You see how he does all of his crossovers and leg yielding and stuff. That is done by leg cues. So any little squeeze you give him might set him off. So you have to really know what you are doing on him. Hard to tell in pics but really doens't look like a blue roan but maybe different up close.

    He looks like fun, unless you want a relaxing ride at a walk! Lol. Looks like he may be able to do much of what you want for sure. Hopefully he will still be available when you are ready.
    He will have to learn some patience along the way.....just standing, or walking to open a gate (without the prancing around) but he may also be an easier ride without the spurs, too. I personally would hate all the pulling.......all else looked good. He sure is good looking.

    I think he had some so-so initial training. He's rushy, his gaits are very quick and stabby and it looks like they just held him in to the pace they wanted instead of teaching him how to slow down. Hence why they ride him hard on his face but yet use spurs on him... If you don't want to ride him on the mouth and have him constantly dancing under you because he doesn't know what to do with himself then you will need to put quite a lot of retraining into him. However, if you have a trainer and/or know what you're doing that's not a hard fix just takes time and patience to teach them to move correctly again and I'd prefer it over some other issues. He is cute and looks pretty willing and isn't afraid to go after the cows so with some more training I think he would do well for what you want as long as you are up to the challenge of riding and training him. He is definitely not a good horse for an inexperienced or timid rider though.
