There is a video of the horse in the ad link originally posted and she also sent me this one of her under saddle. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-DdoO19jkY
This would definitely be easier if there was someone local to her I could ask to check her out...I don't have my heart set on her but I do want to be sure I have asked all of the right questions before letting go of a potentially good horse.
I would not take this horse. She is short strided and on her forehand, and it appears to be the way she's put together.
OP, keep in mind exactly what you intend to do with the horse, and whether the horse is made for that intention.
