    Default Craigslist TB in midwest

    http://southbend.craigslist.org/grd/3208040140.html

    Anyone looking for an event prospect? Look at the trot and knees on this Craigslist mare. I think she's a great prospect who could use a rider upgrade. I have no affiliation with this horse or rider, of course, just hoping to maybe get the right eyes on this horse. I really can't buy another right now or I would go get her myself.

    Good sport pedigree too, Alydar, blushing groom and in reality. Get her off the forehand and straight and she will look like a different horse.

    Holy cow, I'm in love. And that's saying something considering I don't like mares or smaller ones.

    Yeah, she could use a jockey upgrade, but I think that little 11 year old kid is a dynamo! Some time in the saddle with some good instructions (or at least someone to raise her stirrups four holes ) she's going to be a great little rider.

    All next to a busy road

    Worth a look, and looks to be loved & cared for & somewhat let-down - not a given with a CL ad...

    I totally agree, I did not mean to insult the kid, she has some awesome seat of the pants talent. Just saying that the horse would look better after a little dressage training.

    I hope someone picks her up. And then keeps us informed about how awesome she is!

    Oh dear.

    I might be in danger of needing another horse at the moment. But I'm supposed to be on the lookout for one that other people might want to ride, like a 16.2hh calm gelding as opposed to yet another speedy little mare.

    I'm trying to think of an excuse, like I'm not sure where Indiana is or something like that.

    Also, I love the kid. I love how she's got her eye up and rides forward, and I love that her parents let her ride around in the front yard like this.

    Man she is pretty! I've got a gelding by the stallion, "Star Of The Crop", on the dam's side. My guy ran 45+ times and has the best work ethic. Always tries hard. Super tempting! Not too far from Lexington, Ky.

    Here's some info that I got. Current owner wanted her as 2yo but couldn't buy her then. They tracked mare throughout career and finally bought her last December. Current owner ran her once in June, mare didn't do well so they have decided to find her a good riding home. Video is mare's first time jumping, rider normally does barrel racing/rodeo. Current owner feels mare is a more english type which is why they are not keeping her. Mare is a light cribber.

    Well do keep us posted! She is a diamond in the rough for sure, love the trot up and over and down the drive way!

    I'm too far, and though potentially looking for another horse, it has to be a gelding because... well Mr. " I LOVE ME SOME WOMEN" is a PITA around the ladies!

    That's her first time jumping?? That definitely ups the cute/diamond in the rough factor for me. What a willing, patient girl! Light cribber might not be the end of the word...

    She's too far from me (Google maps even confirmed . Not that I could get her anyway right now) Who's going to take her home and keep us updated?

    JER what are you talking about "people might want to ride"? There's a whole list of people on this thread who want to ride her! That counts

    Sending serious enabling vibes to whoever needs them. I'm an expert at justifying things. If you need some excuses, I'm happy to provide them!

    I'm slightly turned off by the cribber part because of potential resale. So how much would that affect the price of the mare who say was competing novice safely, and could be ridden by a kid? I personally love small aka 15.2-16 hand horses, but I'm a minority. I'm afraid I'll hear, "So that's a 15.2 mare who cribs? Oh I'm sorry I'm looking for a gelding who is at least 16.2 and definitely not a cribber!"

    light cribber might just be ulcers and could go away in a different situation....but you should proceed as if it will be worse. I would think small and mare will lower the potential resale more. She's pretty cute....and that always sells

    A light cribber doesn't bother me since my horses live outside and don't have much on which to crib (electric fence). It wouldn't turn me off enough to not go have a look, and is always a negotiating point when it comes to price.
