While she looks lovely and like she might have some potential I would steer clear of her. Especially at the asking price of $40000 that it says on the ad for her
If I was looking for a grand prix type horse I wouldnt even think about getting one who is jumping 4' at 5 years old. How old was the horse when it started jumping??
joint supplements or not this isnt good. Joint supplements don't fuse young bones.
Personally I would say this horse is close to ruined. It appears she can do nothing but jump. If you are trying to sell a horse as a jumper you also have to be able to show that it has knowledge of at least dressage basics but it doesnt appear to me that she even has this. It seems all focus has been on jumping which is very bad especially at her age. Without flatwork basics the horse can't properly jump the jumps/ if she makes it over its all her doing not the rider. Eventing horses arent reaching their peak of jumping until between 10-14 on average these days and that's a good age. Jumping 4ft now...terrible
I would ask how many other things are not kosher with these people. Anyone who is jumping 4ft oxers while giving their horse no release must no very little to nothing about jumping. This is another warning sign. Every jump the rider kept his hands in the same place as riding on the flat. I cringed every time the poor horse went over a jump.
I would suggest that you keep looking. If you arent looking at a grand prix prospect then $40000 is a lot to spend for a horse like this. If you want a big, cruisey potential jumper you could always try a tb :) whichever way I would steer clear of this lovely yet over priced horse
