Critique: Ok lay it on me,Gypsy!
 
Im selling Gypsy and so far I have only had e-mails but no shows. Im asking 2,000. I paid 1,600 she was still green when I bought her I put TONS of work into finishing her. I think if I lower my price I wouldnt be making a good profit. Here is her basic info...
TB type
14 yrs
15.2 hh
Training:
Nat. horsemanship training.
Solid level dressage training.
Goes English/western (neck reins)
Also jumps.
Is an awsome trail horse can go out alone or in group crosses water/bridges.
Excellent ground manners...ect.

So give me the good,the bad and the ugly. Im good with handling crituque so lay it on me!

...So would you be interested in buying her how much would you pay? What would you use her for jumping? Western? Dressage, english? A penny for your thoughts.

id prolly only pay $1500 because of the problems you've had with her.

travlingypsy 10-11-2008 04:38 PM

Oh that sucks. Huh... Yah shes a better trail horse then an arena horse. The other day she spooked at a horse sneezing. But out on the trails shes great but for the tight areas. I wonder if I should just get her super great on trails and sell her that way? I think she just gets bored in the arena and thats why she spooks. Because Ive done everything with that problem....At least I can handle it now.

Gingerrrrr 10-11-2008 04:53 PM

maybe you could sell her as a great trail prospect. or get her good at the trails and sell her as a trail horse only. i can see loads of potential in her.

Thanks! Im glad someone does. I mean I love this mare to death! Shes actually came such a looong way from being to scared to come out of the barn and now to be able to go out on trails by her self and walk trot canter! Ok im a little proud of my self but we actually CANTERED up a hill...lol ya ya many of you can do it. But it was my very first time it was soooo fun! She did great. We first trotted and I was like "wweeeee...Weeee WEEEEEE." lol true I said that then we cantered. But she has a LOT of get up and go!

gaming prospect?

travlingypsy 10-11-2008 05:26 PM

See we think she use to game, cause when my trainer was on her in one of my lessons gypsy could "turn on a dime" my trainer was yeilding her for taking over and she got on those honches so fast and was like boom down to the other side... But dont you think she is to old being 14? I know shes the second to the fastest horse here. Her canter in the arena I mean sheesh when cantering in a group I have to be first and then im even on the tail end of the group.
But my trainer swears up and down that her lesson horse sunny has the fastest gallop, you cant tell by his canter tho.
Thanks for help by the way!

14 isnt old at all to do gaming. there was a horse at the show i was at last week who was doing barrels at the ripe old age of 28! boy could he run! :shock:

travlingypsy 10-11-2008 09:59 PM

Wow 28 thats amazing...! I always thought the horses that did gaming were younger. I dont know why. As much as I want to jump and go to shows I never get to and probably wont until I get my own truck and trailer.

Hmmm so now she will be a trail horse/gaming prospect...lol I dont know she can just do anything with the training, work thats been put into her.
