It looks like the Pal is contracted in both his rears- not sure how much that could be improved at his age.

I'll bet it has a lot to do with his halter breeding. They tend to breed for those upright, really straight jointed legs these days.

One of the calmest, sanest, most forgiving horses I've ridden was a 13yo Peruvian paso gelding who had been a stud most of his life (was gelded the month before he was given to my friend). He wasn't started under saddle until he was about eight or nine. *shrug*

Judging from the ad, I would say it was likely option A. What really sent my suspicion meter to code red was that "He has been ridden in a round pen and is very willing to learn".

Seriously? He's been in training 3 months and only been ridden in the roundpen? Either he isn't nearly as willing to learn as they want you to believe or the trainer really isn't that much of a trainer.
That actually makes sense, smrobs. And I agree about the whole thing about being ridden in the round pen for three months. Aires was ridden in the round pen three times, then went out into the arena. He hasn't been ridden in the round pen since.

Hey look guys! He's 'catty' (what does that even mean) and he can fart like...ten times in a row! Especially with a nice big butt like that one. I've never met a horse that could fart before. That's some talent. Even better, he has to go by today. no wait. the end of the month. today.

guess it just depends on how gassy he's being.

Does your horse need exercise?

I am looking for a way to get some exercise by doing something I truly love - horseback riding. It occurred to me that there might be some horses also in need of a workout, especially if their college-aged kids are away.. I had been riding western pleasure ever since I was a kid and could lift a saddle. Before that, I rode bareback. When I married over 20yrs ago, I had to give up all of my horses and now my health is suffering for it. Anyone who rides a horse knows that you can't slouch while on horseback. We're living in an area where owning one is not possible, and I've talked to enough people to know that their horses don't get enough exercise.

If you have horses in or near Conroe, near the Woodlands or Magnolia, let's talk. It's definitely a win/win situation and I think your horse will enjoy it.

Thanks for looking!!

poor dear. she hasn't ridden in 20 years and now she's obese and has cancer...but its ok. She knows you cant slouch when you're riding, so she'll be fine once she's riding again and so will your horse! totally win win.

For Sale/Trade = 4 year old beautiful mare

Beautiful White 14.5 Mare that has great ground work done on her and will not take much to ride her perfectly. She is 1/2 Arabian and 1/2 Quarter with a greatness within her. She will stand for ferrier, take a saddle and snaffle bit, you can mount her and ride, but not neck ruinable yet, her ONLY flaw is she can be excitable, but that is the Arabian in her. She's too much horse for my 12 year old son and he likes to be able to ride all the horses we have. He's in 4-H and we are looking for a gelding that is ridable (preferable a horse that is older) or a young (year or less) stud colt. I would even consider a 3 horse trailer that is bumper pull. I will be out here today (11/6) and next weekend (11/11 - 11/13), please feel free to come and see her. Email me any reasonable offer or trade.

Well crap. She isn't neck ruinable ._.
On that first one, I believe "catty" is used to describe a horse that is quick on its feet. "A lot of gas" would probably denote that he's got good speed on him.

I think you're being a bit unfair on that second ad. Nowhere does she say that she's obese or has cancer. Yes, she says her health has suffered, but that could just mean that she doesn't feel as good as she did when she was riding. And she's right, riding does help you lose weight and get back into shape. Also, the whole "slouch" use probably means you can't be lazy when you ride. If I had horses that needed exercise that I didn't have time to give them, and this person proved to me that they could ride, I would be willing to give them a shot. That just my honest opinion, though.

As for that last one...that's just scary. Who in their right mind thinks "Let's get a young stud colt for our 12-year-old son!"?! Seriously!

Drafty - there is a world of difference between a Peruvian Paso and a Paso Fino - they are two entirely different breeds with very different temperments.

I have a friend that has Peruvian Pasos - they are nearly as laid back as a quarter horse - I'm a chicken, but I wouldn't be afraid to ride one.

Paso Finos are smaller overall than Peruvian Pasos from what I've seen, and much more high strung. Paso Fino afficianados call it "brio," I think.

He doesn't go far enough - does he expect people whose animals have just died to have them all dressed and ready for him, or will he cart away the deceased animal for the owner?
