    Trained
    It is absolutely better not to get a horse that you are not comfortable with. I'm glad that you are going to look for a better trained horse. You can't go wrong that way.

    West coast sucks my butt! XD If you need some connections, I know of some really great people who sell GREAT horses for really good prices!

    She's overpriced for sure, and there's lots better out there(:

    You can PM me if you want

    Oh thanks :) I went to a tack store earlier today and got 8 numbers for people.. Geez I'm leaving to soon! But still leaving to late, poor Casey! That horse in the video (that I visited today) I am sure I could have done stuff with and enjoyed her (eventually) but I want a horse that I could learn to do dressage\jumping on that enjoys it and boosts my confidence. Plus, although I would love to train a horse, I would still want a jumping horse that is trained- I do NOT currently have the funds for 3 horses!

    Yeah, I know someone who has a lot of horses available. She puts really great training on them, focusing on dressage as a foundation. (: She always has horses available, and they move through quickly, so she's a great contact to have! She's one of the most amazing horsepeople I've seen, and has a lot of great experience and success under her hat

    The horse I visited today is awesome! Pretty Palomino mare, appendix, eight years. Jumps three foot. She is a nice mix between the two horses in visited, the first was a 12 yrs old confidence booster and the second, a deadhead on the ground but a bit green over jumps. She was a little lazy and I had a bit of trouble getting her going in the dressage saddle as it was to small for me and there were those huge blocks that hold your leg n that I'm not used to. When I moved into the jumping saddle I got her going easily and she was great! She is a point and shoot jumper once you move her forward, great for a confidence booster for me.

    I can't think of any cons but one thing.. She had tendinitis as a three year old, don't know what from. I have no experience with this, anyone know much out it with jumping horses? I know what it is and such but nothing about ever using horses who have had it in the past. Obviously it depends on the horse but.... We will have a vet check but probably won't be able to come down to see it. We would have to do it over the phone :/

    Okay, vet check today! She passed with flying colors leg wise. The vet thinks it was actually just extra fluid in the leg sheath and that she is completely recovered and should be great for jumping! He also said she has a very sweet personality. He said her hoof material suggests she probably will still need shoes (at least on front hooves). The only things were she needed her hooves/teeth done, needed to loose 50-60 pounds, and her vaccinations and she is all set! Very happy :) Oh and the owners said no lameness ever other than the tendinitis/fluid thing (whatever it was). He did flexion tests on concrete, and trotted her out on big rocks and she was fine..
