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!
