I like him though, it doesn't say how long he's been out of condition, i'm sure you can get him back up into working condition, my only thing would to make sure you understand how to use a bitless bridle, and to make sure you and anyone else who rides him to do so carefully and with light hands, but other then that amke sure to get a vet check on him, and go check him out! He may be perfect! And if they'll allow possibly do a trial period of like 2 weeks or so to see how he fits into your lives.

kitty, he is so awesome! He rode like a dream, minus VERY light contact, otherwise he throws his head a bit. But he w/t/c like an angel. He is very responsive to seat and leg cues. He tacked up perfectly, lead well, picked up his feet, etc. he's awesome. And im on my way back to give her a deposit until my vet goes out to check him.

He's so frickin cute! I was just telling the hubby, all he needs is a horn and he would be a unicorn. Seriously, he has that look.

:(((( Well the vet check didnt go as well as it could have. He got
+3 on right lower limb flexion- came up lame after flexing. He did fine riding, lunging, and hand jogging but when flexed showed lameness. The vet said he would be fine for trails and work around the house, and that's all I do. But it may take injections and supplements to manage it. I'm still kiiinda in the air about it, if his price was negotiable but hubby says its like buying a car with a motor you know is going bad- a money pit waiting to happen. :((( so sad

aww poor boy! Maybe look around more and if all else fails he can be a fall back? And to me there is no price to the right horse. If he's the perfect one i'd pay any price, but of course make sure you keep searching first, you amy come across better.

I just think $1200 is over priced for a lame horse. He's not registered and lame :(

I bought my registered paint for $500. Granted I paid for training for him, but it still came out to less than this gelding. :(

I really love his tempermant, but I am going to have to keep looking.
