Hi my names Claire and my daughters name is Nakita, we would just like to introduce ourselves and hopefully get help and guidance along the way. We have the opportunity to own a 14.2 chestnut mare. We have never owned a horse before and we would like help and guidance before we take her on. We live in Spain and the pony at the moment is kept in a stable with another horse. She has not been ridden for 2 years, she has had a foal in within this time, she was kept in a stable 24/7 by the previous owner to the one that we would be getting her off. Apparently her hoofes were cut too far back and caused her to be lame. The lady we are getting her off said about her tendens in her legs being stiff as she as been kept in a stable for so long. Please could anyone help and advise on whether to take on this pony or to leave her with the owner.
Hello again to you all
