Critique some possible buys?
Dora 15.3 1/2 hh 7 year old chestnut Appendix mare
Doc 15.2 hh 7 year old chestnut qh gelding
Starset 15.3 hh 5 year old bay TB mare
EDIT: Here is another ad for Starset with different pictures
Marigold 15.3 hh 9 year old chestnut Appendix mare
Too Easy 15.1 hh 11 year old bay Appendix mare

Not the greatest pictures, but we have just started horse shopping and here are some I've found. We are also looking at a paint, but since he isn't technically for sale I won't post him.

i like the first one best but i would like to see her jump .. but really they are all cute in their own ways :)

The only problem I have with her is that she is a chestnut, which is definitely my least favorite color. However, I'm looking at the horses, not their color.

Hmm, I'd need to see more confo pics to get a better look.

Doc looks pretty nice & seems like a good horse.
But Dora doesn't seem too bad.
Starset doesn't look like she has that much experience or skills except hunter. Dora has more skills it looks like, but she's cheaper. ;) Marigold looks eager & willing to please. Too Easy seems nice too.
Yeah, Chesnuts aren't a fav. of mine either, but it's really about the horse itself.
They are pretty good though.

I don't mind a hunter only horse seeing as I'm a hunter/jumper and eq rider.

I'm really too ADD-minded right now to type out a critique of all of them, but just keep in mind resale for horses between 14.3 and 16hh is very low... they're not "in fashion" right now.

I know, but I need a horse in the 15 hh range.
I'm only 5'1"

Plus, resale isn't a huge deal to me.

Okay!! I personally HATE the way the fad is for bigger horses... smaller horses tend to be more agile than the big lug Warmbloods haha ;)

I'm super bad at critique, but I don't like Starset. She has sort of a weird tuck.

DORA - very cute girl, looks to be built very well. and looks as if she movie extremely well. and she seems to be at the right price.

DOC - he seems way over priced to me. hes a nice looking horse and seems to be GREAT for what it looks like you want in a horse.

STARSET - I really like the looks of this mare, shes got perfect conformation and she seems to be trained so well for her age. she really seems like shes worth the money.

MARIGOLD - a cute mare, she looks pretty nice, and seems to be just as good as starset but marigold is 5k cheaper. haha however, it is up to you to decide, do you want a 6 year old horse for a little more money, or a 9 year old horse for a little less. personally i would go with Starset over Marigold.

TOO EASY - I like this horse the best. she isn't as expensive as some of the others but has just as much training and it seems like you could do whatever you want with her. but she is the oldest out of all of them.

if i were you i would look at the last three horses in person.
Starset, Marigold, and Too Easy seem like the best pics.
and looking simply at ads online do not tell you which horse you will like. if i were you i would make appointments to see those three horses.

hope i helped! =]
