Critique on possible buy?
Hello! I've been looking for a good arabian that's good on the trails and I think I might've found a good one. Now, I know these aren't conformation photos, but they're the only ones I have, so please let me know if there's anything you can glean from what you see! Whether it's looks or appearance-wise. I don't want to do anything fancy with her. I just want a reasonably pretty arabian to ride out on the trails! They say she's been on the trails and is beginner safe. Her neck seems a little short to me, but I'm not sure if it's just the pictures?

Thank you!

Oh she is so cute. I love a good little sorrel arab :)

All I can really tell from these pictures are that she seems to be pretty. She has pretty eyes and she looks like a calm horse, but like you said, these just aren't good pictures to judge from, or enough to judge from either. Could you post information about her, like her ad? That could help.

Thank you for your replies! :) Here's her ad:

is a 10 yr old Arabian mare, she is full blooded but not registered, she was rescued from being sent to slaughter because the owner of a big Arabian show barn died and his children did not want to take over care of the horses... She was trained western pleasure and you can feel it in every light step she takes. It probably wouldn't take much to get her back in show ready shape. I only used her as an endurance horse though, this is a horse that loves to be on the trail. She has done 50 mile Endurance rides with a JR rider. She is beginner friendly and kid safe. She is shy, probably because of her situation, but still a loving horse. UTD on shots and coggins.

Ah, her doing endurance explains her condition, lol. Well, I think she sounds like a wonderful horse, she looks like a wonderful horse, and I would highly suggest going out to see her!

I'd go see her if I were you.

She's a pretty little gal. Sounds like a great trail horse,if she's calm enough. Definetely check her out-she'll need someone to love,Arabs are "people" horses. Mine always lets me know he'd like even more attention.

She's really cute! definitely would need more pictures to judge because the one photo makes her head & neck look proportional.

I really like her. Even if she does have a big head in person, its a superficial thing and nothing that should keep you from buying her if she's as trail savvy as they make her out to be. The fact that she's ridden in a D-ring snaffle rather than a mechanical hackamore or curb like many supposive "trail horses" these days are and that she seems to be going nice on a loose rein are both pointing towards a nice, easy going mare. I'd go look at her in a heartbeat if I were in the market for a trail horse.

^^ I completely agree personality and rideability should come first above confirmation if your looking for a horse to mainly trail ride!
