Updated! But no pics Would you take a chance?
I'm kind of torn here and need some advice from the more experienced. I am currently in the market for a new horse and there is one that keeps popping up on the web. It's an unraced 5 year old TB mare that has been used as a western trail horse so has no real formal training. The horse looks so sad and forlorn it just tugs at my heart. I know not to buy for emotional reasons but if I could give this horse a better life, I would. Super quiet, about 16 hands, just needs a bit of tlc and training. I am looking for a horse to go training level and maybe prelim so since this horse has no jump training, if I were to go look would you lunge her over a couple of jumps or trot over poles just to see how she reacts? I don't want to end up with one no matter how sweet and find out she doesn't have any aptitude.
Have you been in this situation and what did you do? Move on or take a look/chance?
