    Yay! How exciting! Is he a TB or an appendix? (Just noticed the bottom of your post) What's his name? I hope everything works out!

    I think I know the horse you're talking about-- General Hood?....I wanted to look at him, but don't need another right now.

    I also have a grandson of Secretariat....although that means *nothing* seeing as he's a gelding. http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c.../icon_wink.gif Well, except for a wee bit of bragging to those non-horsey people-- they think it's awesome! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...milies/yes.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...on_biggrin.gif My boy is similar to what I've read about Secretariat. He works hard, sweet, and pretty athletic (can do so much without much effort).

    I hope it works out for you! http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...icon_smile.gif

    Errr, the first horse you look at is a horse that's been starved and needs work and you're BUYING him? Not that this suprrises me--it's darn hard not to fall in love with the first horse you see--but how about trying some others first??? http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...s/icon_eek.gif

    The new horse is going to be a huge difference from Stormy and what you are use to.
    Don't flame me, but.....JMHO, but most trainers would not put their clients into this sort of situation.

    She said the ride went well...maybe he was starved earlier and he's okay now.

    Congratulations

    I hope he's at the right weight NOW because if you get him home and 'unstarve' secretariat you may have a real uncontrollable bundle of energy on your hands.

    What happened to those nice appendix QH's you were looking at online?

    No flames here Bumpkin, I agree.

    Like I said before, a TB is a big difference from a cold blooded Appy. Then you throw in the starved part of it---what is this horse going to be like when he has had proper nutrition and is fit? Please don't just jump on the first horse you see, especially so you can tell people he's "related to Secretariat"...it won't hold much creedence when you are in the hospital.

    I remember talking with my first Pony Club instructor after I had broken my back from being bucked off by an OTTB--she said that's why she never mounted PC kids on TB's. (No flames here, I love TB's, they have a place, but are not a great choice for many riders-timid beginners, amateurs, etc)

    I wish you well, but I'd sure look at other breeds which might be a far better all around horse for you-especially if you plan to take them to shows and away from home.

    Well my trainer said it was ok and we are getting him as long as he passes the vet check..... Ya'll dont know my riding level and your just going based on what i say. Sure stormy was cold blooded but who cares (I want somthing differnt) i've been riding Tbs for 4 yrs and know how to handle then and IF i get beanie i'll just have to work with him.... I walk trot and cantered him not to metion jumped him and he was fine.

    Beanie is home-grown....never been on the track. He's been worked as a hunter-jumper, event prospect for three or four years. He's very level-headed. He's been at the barn where my trainer's daughter boards for six weeks now. She has watched him and ridden him and feels confident that he is quiet and bomb-proof. This barn is crazy-kids running around, horses running loose and he takes it all in stride and never even blinks an eye as he his just 6 yrs old.

    It is not an appropriate horse in my opinion either.

    I hope your trainer's liability insurance is paid up.

    Believe me, I had a horse that wasn't starved, but underweight when I got him and when he fatted up, he was crazy! I could not canter him for a whole month, but we worked through this and after 4 yrs, he is one of the quietest TBs I know, but that took work. He now does the 3'6"-3'9" jumpers in a happy mouth snaffle, but he didn't start that way. If you are going to get upset if you can't canter for a whole month then you shouldn't get the horse. Just to let you know mine was 9 when he did this and he is also related to Secretariat.

    I think you should go look at more and be very honest about your riding ability with yourself before you buy this horse.

    Well its going to be my mistake and you dont know the whole story behind it.... and i dont care ya'll have Tbs big freaken deal its just a breed. There are hot horses just not Tbs. Mt trainer says there are hot Qhs,Appys and ponies out there. Besides the biggest thing is if he passes the vet check. This is ticking me off. I'll just shut up and not say a word about it intill i know for sure that im getting him.

    I agree...sounds like an accident waiting to happen http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/dead.gif But, hey guys, we've tried to warn her before...she's only going to take the advice & praises she wants to hear, and to hell with the rest of it and us, after all, none of us know anything about her riding level and capabilites, right? She's only posted a million pics http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ilies/uhoh.gif So I guess we're all just a bunch of know-it-alls and we're gonna get proved wrong...O-KAY! http://chronicleforums.com/images/cu...ies/sleepy.gif Go for it then, prove us wrong...but when you get yourself hurt (and a lot of it sounds like trainer negligence to me as well) don't come crying to those on this board who tried to give you some sound (from YEARS of experience) advice. So, go knock yourself out (literally) You're fixin' to get in way over your head, it sounds like http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif http://chronicleforums.com/groupee_c...n_rolleyes.gif
