Maybe give him a call, alot of people dont really like texting, which might be why he hasnt gotten back to you. I dont think making one phone call if going to bug him to much. Very good idea to take someone with you when you go to look at this horse. I think it would be a good idea to take Merrylegs up on her offer, its takes alot to retrain a t/b esp to jump safely. It is alot different to retrain and t/b to a s/b.
