I bought a 3yo stallion last year, gelded him, and he is an amazing horse. Very good blood lines, head is sound as a pound and good movement for dressage. I paid €3700, but due to circumstances put him for sale for €7800. Got the buyer, passed is PPE, and then in the xrays he had a crushed hock from foal age. No one would have ever guessed.
I gifted him to my trainer. He has the home that every horse could wish for, is worked lightly and spends a lot of time in the field
HOWEVER, after three vets said he could last 2-20 years, I promised my trainer, and my friend, that I would help when it was time for him to go.
If this horse is already arthritic in her hind, but you want her to go to a good home.. WHY would you send her to a riding school?? Sorry, just a weird one for me.
It sounds like she'd be suitable for some light trail riding, and for that you would be looking at giving away around here as a light hack companion horse. There are so many good horses going two to a penny.
