    Bottle spinning is where the horse does not turn it's forehand around the hind end, and it ends up looking like the front end is chasing the back end of the horse. It's really no big deal to fix for the most part. :)

    So pretty much she is over flexed to the inside instead of moving around with her barrel and shoulders?

    Honestly, I think she's got more going on that a tooth issue. I'd be some what cautious when purchasing a horse from someone that feels it's okay to show a horse that is clearly in pain. She looks like she's certainly going to be needing more training. I am curious, what is the asking price? How long has she been in reining training? She is a cute mare, I far rather have a mare, I've found them to be gritty and get the job done.

    That horse is hurting somewhere, when you figure it out, she will go much better.

    They are asking $6000, they say they can "do better" on the price. Not sure what the final verdict is.

    Like I said, she doesn't normally go like that. I'll try to post another video of her sometime soon.

    Like I said, they don't use her. They probably whipped her out of the paddock and stuck her on the trailer because they had an extra spot. Does it make it right? No, but I also know they aren't "those" kind of people. The same guy who was riding her was riding their new horse. The horse got its foot caught in a slide. Didn't look serious. He got of immediately and checked him over. He took a zero, but the horse was fine. Do I know what they were thinking riding her? No, but I do know they aren't the kind of people who just say screw it, ride her. They take amazing care of their horses.

    Interesting turn of events....

    After some negotiating the family decided $6,000 was the lowest they would take for her. My friend decided it was to much even though she really liked her. We decided it wasn't ment to be.

    It's been a few weeks and my trainers husband (my trainers mom and dad are the ones selling the horse) comes over to ask what happened and my friend gave the whole to much money story. He said he was going to have a talk with her because he knows how to "work magic". Sure enough three days later we get a call from my trainers mom saying she really wants to keep her in the neighborhood, she knows she will be in good hand and that she will still be able to see her (i will be taking lessons with the horse). She dropped the price to $5,000 for us! And I offered to chip in a bit of money too to lower the cost even more, $1,500. That brings the total down to $3,500 for her which is what she originally wanted to spend!

    =D there is hope! Fingers crossed!

    Ps, the pain situation. She had two sharp teeth making sores in her mouth. She had her teeth floated a few weeks prior to the show. The guy missed a few because he doesn't do it under sedation. Then the vet came to check her and found them. Apparently she also despises the correction bit and that guys is pretty heavy handed according to my trainer. She was a totally different horse when I rode her in a lighter bit after the teeth were done!
