hi Jackie. Hope your daughter is well soon. You need to check out other horses,comparison shopping, check out diff boarding facilities, etc.
You will want to call a Vet get a pre purchase exam done. If the horse cost is very low then there is usually a reason .. such as age and lameness issues.
Is the horse a mare, gelding, registered? Sound? How much does boarding cost ? Farrier ? Vet services ? Shots, worming, ranch calls, ? Does the horse eat just hay/forage or does it require supplements? Specials shoes cost more and usually mean a lameness. I have old horses, some sound some lame, some just light riding but they suit me just fine! Figure your cost, because the cheapest thing about a horse is its initial cost. OH don't forget saddle, bridle, brushes, halters leads, shampoos, condioner, hoof ointment,fly spray ,fly sheet winter blankets, and the very spendy o my ,, the horse needs a Vet , and its a weekend after hours call :)
