Thanks. I got it.

Now unfortunately though, I won't need it any longer. The owner sold the horse today. I'm a little annoyed since she knew I was planning on purchasing it. But I guess everything happens for a reason.

I hovered over doing this three times here when what seemed to be my 'perfect' horses were way too far away for me to go see them. I'm sure they were all genuine and did what it said on the box but I still chickened out
When you see someone else riding a horse you have no idea how good or how strong a rider they are - and never be fooled by the skinny little females.
I did go to see a part bred Arabian that looked really forward going on the videos - the guy is such a quiet rider but he's also really strong in his legs because keeping it going was the hardest I've ever worked
I'd be put off by the height of that horse anyway - unless you're really tall .

Ok finally watched the video - nooooot impressed. I see a hitch in his right hind, but hs entire back end moves funny trotting away from the camera. Truly that 2 second clip didn't tell anyone much of anything, but I do suspect there's something going on with the hind end.

Personally no I would not do that unless I knew someone who knew the horse personally. but that is me.
This horse could turn out to be a maniac under saddle, or unbroken, or not the horse in the photos etc, if your ready for that possibility then yeah sure, go ahead.

But, if you choose to go ahead and you get a vet check, you choose the vet. Don't let the owner of the horse sway you into choosing a particular vet for any reason.

I've had things go seriously bad by letting the owner of the horse choose the vet who did the exam since I didn't know any in the area. Do your research on the vets in the area and chose one you like the sound of. Good luck :)

I think he was best walked away from anyway, too stockily built to be really useful for competing - his height would be a real disadvantage in a jumping ring and a lot of horse to hold together in dressage
I don't know how much you want to spend but have you looked at this website at all?

Are you looking for a specific discipline or just a fun horse?
Mass. isn't too far from you, this place always has some bargain horses

On horse sales - the owners need to sell the horse when they get the money. I have had so many people tell me they were going to buy the horse, but the money never came depsite "the check is in the mail" and "I don't know why the wire transfer didn't go through" etc etc. I'll hold a horse for a short time if I get a deposit on the horse, but not anymore until then. Just my personal experience with people saying they were going to buy the horse but just didn't, for various reasons. Better luck next time.
