    Honestly, I think she is not a very pretty jumper and that $15k is a lot for her. From seeing your other post and now this one, I really think you are not at all looking at the right horses and that you really need to figure out what you want to do and consider your riding level, before you just go off and spend all kind of money on horses who are not in any way right for you, so that you can have fun riding.

    Sorry no offence but should you really be considering a 5yr old!! Whats wrong with a nice allrounder!! Odviously something with a nice jump but I just feel like your going to dig yourself a hole here!! Your going to end up with something you are not going to be able to handle which wouldn't be fair on the horse or you!!

    I agree that a horse jumping 4' at 5 years old is way too young. I don't understand why she has always had a joint supplement. In my opinion, horses at that age DO NOT need one! She's very pretty yes, but I agree that she is probably not the right horse for you. From the sounds of it, if she is that eager to jump, she is probably hotheaded and just excited at that age. Also, from the jumping pic you showed, she doesn't seem to have the correct form going over the fence. It looks like she's over-jumping. From the pics, it doesn't look like the rider even put jumping boots on her to protect her legs. The description seems a bit far-fetched and not completely honest to me. I also agree about joint problems later. Whatever you decide, make sure that you spend time with this horse before you make your decision. Ride her and spend stall time with her, but I believe you can find something more suitable and for a much more affordable price!

    Just thought this was interesting, did you copy this directly from the ad? If so then I make her out to be 8, not 5. Are they being honest about her age? If she is actually 8 as this comment suggests then why hasn't she been shown over fences? They say 'ready for baby greens' interesting that she is schooling 4'9 at home but only ready for the beginner classes.

    Agreed that if she is 5 she is far too young to be jumping such big jumps although I am not convinced that she is only 5.

    Sounds fishy to me!
