Critique on standardbred mares?
First one is a 6 year old stb mare, off the track and not broke to ride.

And the second one, is a 4 year old stb mare, never raced and not broke to ride. She got hit by a car last year, but has since healed nicely and been confirmed sound by vet. First picture is her injury, and second is her today.

I hope to train the one I choose for English riding and jumping, let me know what you think of them :)

Hey the pictures are not loading. Do you know the blood lines on either horse? ie mare or sire? Do you have info on weather they were trotters or pacers?

They were working before, for some reason they stopped ... I know they were trotters, but I don't know their bloodlines. Ill try to fix the pictures later.

I can't open the links either. You could try TrackIT for the OTSB mares blood lines if you know her registered name.

Personally, I would get mare 2. She's only 4, so that would be easier to work with and break her.

Standardbreds from the track are usually pretty easy to break to ride. Though they have not had a rider on their back, they do know how to turn, stop, stand tied, usually good for ground work and not spooky since they have seen a lot on the track.

I can't see the pictures for some reason so can't comment on conformation at all but 6 is certainly not old either. Pre purchase exam for sure, as you don't want to run into anything hidden on either horse.

Both could stand to gain some weight in my book. I like Mare number 2 but her history of accident worries me a bit. Can you tell me their registered or racing names? I might know of there lines and have some ideas about them.

Chevylover96 12-10-2012 03:16 PM

I don't know their registered names, I can ask the owner and get back to you. And I agree, I like mare #2 better but the accident worries me.
