Well, I still like him. I would go ahead and be asking the current owner (and previous owner if I could get ahold of them) why they were selling after such a short amount of time. Sometimes people just aren't in a position to keep the horse so they must sell...and other people see them selling the horse in such a short amount of time and automatically assume that there must be something wrong with him. That happens and the owners have to drop the price. Sometimes all this happens at absolutely no fault of the horse. Granted, oftentimes there is something wrong with them, but it may just be something small that is easily fixed with the right person. He looks nice enough in the video that I would be asking more questions before discounting him completely.

I have talked with two of the owners and three of the trainers...seems to be easier to get in touch with trainers..the main trainer that had him before he got passed around said to me that in all honesty he was always a lot of horse...was never soft in mouth...not a good stopper which i noticed when trying him out, the horse needed a really experienced rider..i had no trouble with him, but he needed work on some of his manuevers..the current trainer loves him...LOL but then again he is getting a commission to sell him!!! The two owners i talked too..one previous and the current both said they were switching displines...well i know one lied because her trainer told me she just bought a new reiner from him!!! So that is all i need to know i have moved on and am in no way considering this horse...this is why i do my research...vet checks and such on horses..you can really get screwed over..i don't know why they are selling this horse and not telling me..but apparently its not a good reason or a need money sell!!

I still like him too, and think in the right maintenance program with the right trainer he would do well. It may just be that the current owner wants an easier ride......still not an excuse to lie to you. Not soft in the mouth sounds to me more like a training issue from the beginning. Hope you find the right horse.....I did know of one for sale in MD-not sure if he is still available.

Signature undergoing edits. Please standby.......
