    I wouldn't even look at her, based on the first minute of the video. She wings badly on that right front.

    Had her about a week. Whatever you all think you saw on the videos is irrelevant AND untrue. Super nice horse. Was a 14 hour drive for her to get to me by the way. Just want to let you all know regardless of your opinions she has found the right home and the right person. Very athletic and a dream to ride. You can't expect perfection from a 5 year old mare but she is on the right track and is no longer open for your criticisms because they no longer count. No one ever claimed she was finished. She has had a good start and she is full of potential. She is a blessing!

    People were giving honest feedback on what they saw, which is what they were asked to do, so I don't see why you have your panties in a bunch.

    I'm sure everyone is pleased that you are so happy with your new mare, so just relax and enjoy her.

    OP, if you are still on the search you should check around in my area. It's not too far from you and good horses are going pretty cheap. Search zip code 18360, good luck in your horse search!

    In my opinion, absolutely not.

    Good luck with her though!

    Thanks!! I'll take a look. My friends kind of frustrated with horse shopping... The two she liked didnt work out (welcome to the horse world). Her other mare is also "doing to much better" so she isn't getting rid of her. She said maybe in the spring. I tried to explain that's when prices go up but oh well...

    Well, if she has the money, it wouldn't be a bad idea for her to go ahead and keep her eyes open through the winter. I have a feeling that hay prices are going to go up even farther this year than they did last year so there will probably be a lot of folks trying to get rid of horses when they start running low on hay in the middle of winter. You can get some real bargains during that time because people become pretty desperate to sell and there aren't many folks looking to buy horses in winter.

    Thats what I said =\... you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.
