My mom decided against Nomis Molly, and even though I think she will be good she wants to look into this 19 year old, 14.2hh Thoroughbred cross x QH. (Sire's Sire is a Thoroughbred, Sires Dam is a Grade, Dam is a QH) They are asking 500 but are willing to barter.
She does w/j/t/l/c/g, jumps, rides English, western, trail, through water, over logs, through brush and tight spaces, really anywhere and is very willing but she is old as dirt... no offense toward the mare but she is quite old and it is taking its toll. She cribs, which is okay and luckily she doesn't have asthma from it. She is BEAUTIFUL, just small and kind of old. She moves easily, but I think she probably only has about five more years on her before she has to retire. She is getting a slight sway back too. My mom is 5' 3'' but maybe only 5' 2'' and weighs 175-180# and I feel like she may be too large for her. The mare is stocky and built like the old style tank-of-a-QH. Do you think she'll be too big for her?
