What do you think? (potential look-at)
 
I saw this filly awhile ago, and keep coming back to her. I just can't get her out of my head. From the pictures, she looks like she has a nice personality and good conformation.
I have been riding for about 8 years, have ridden green horses and I absolutely love groundwork training, so I would have no problem waiting a year or more to start riding.
Also, since I'm homeschooled, I'm basically at home 24/7, so I would have plenty of time to work with her.

The people who are selling her buy horses from auction and sell them to new homes. I emailed them, and they said that she was just halter broke a few weeks ago.

What do you think of her from what you can see from the pictures?

Riding a green horse is very different from backing one from step one. If you do not have a trainer to back her for you, I would not take this on. JMHO.

She IS cute, but........

I like her, and some horses are easier to start than others, I got a horse when I was 15 (never owned a horse or really rode a horse) and broke my horse and he was only halter broke

First I would want to know the dam. 2nd she has no papers pretty much all she has going for her right now is color. I would be concerned why no papers when the sire is known? With hypp breeders still breeding I would be wondering if there is an n/h horse in the bottom side. Also she carries a lot of Poco so herda would be a concern too.

I would be asking if she has been dna'd and if not factor that into what she costs.

Yeah I definetely agree with that. I am starting up lessons with a new instructor, and I'm not sure if she'd be willing to help me out or not. Even if I don't have someone train for me, it would be good to have someone to help me out if I need it.

That is very lucky! Especially since you had no experience at all.
I agree though, some horses are way easier than others... it's always a gamble not knowing what yours will be. haha

She came from auction, so I guess she didn't have papers from her old owner. I agree, I will ask them though!
Thanks everyone!

I was wondering the hypp issue, too.
I do like her looks. she has a big stride and her hind hits the ground before her fore in the trot, which I like.

My mare doesn't have papers because her sire wasn't registered. It's a shame because her dam is registered and has Doc O'Lena on her side. Just because she doesn't have papers isn't a reason to be suspicious :) Checking for those diseases wouldn't be a bad idea, but it shouldn't be a turn off if you aren't needing a registered horse for breed shows.

horseluver50 12-30-2011 04:33 PM

Yeah I wouldn't be showing in breed shows or anything like that. Just for local shows and pleasure/trail riding :]
About the hypp though, if the owners don't know who the dam is, how would I know if or not she is hypp positive?
Thanks!
