Hi everyone

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

Welcome from California

I would say that if you have the money to do a vet check and that will let you know if the pony is tender from a bad trim or something else.

Thankyou for your reply, I really don't have the money for the vet check as well to be honest, is there anything I could look for myself or am I better to try and get a vet.

you are better off having a vet check... normally they aren't more then $200 and it will save you so much in the long run. If there wasn't something wrong with the pony I wouldn't suggest a vet check but since the owner is telling you there are issues- that would make me double check.
