A while back I posted an entry about my new gelding I was incredibly excited to show. Unfortunately, it turned out he had a permanent, congenital problem that rendered him unable to stay sound enough to go show. I wont go on about my experience, but I will say that I will never buy a horse from Mark Harrell OR Lindsey Harrison again. Both of these people were aware of a problem with him (that apparently had been a problem since his yearling year when he was sold at the world show sale), but promoted that he was sane and sound and ready to go show. Not sure how long it will take for me to make it to the show ring again, but this experience has been profound enough to make me question my desire to continue showing horses in the AQHA all together. Mark Harrell did offer to do a trade, but when I got my new horse home, I have been disappointed to find that he will be unable to show until further notice as well. Mark Harrell then went on to resell the gelding named Kool Kool Krymsun with no mention of his known lameness problem. Very disappointing indeed.
