Thanks, everyone! I'm definitely trying not to limit myself in any way, and I want to do as much research as I possibly can before bringing any horse home. Like anyone, I have my favorite breeds and then I have the breeds that I'm curious about and would love to know more about.
In the past few weeks, I've actually been very fortunate to be in contact with a few Alberta-based rescue organizations and they've presented a few horses that have really caught my fancy. One is an Arab X mare and the other is a Standardbred mare. I used to work with Standardbreds and I've always had a soft spot for them, but to fall in love with the Arab was a complete surprise. I'm not usually a fan, but something about her just clicked.
I'm going to continue looking and meeting horses before I make a decision. I want to be 10000% sure that I'm buying the right horse, for the right reason. I want to be a good fit for the horse, and I want to horse to be a good fit for me. That'll take time to find that, but I'm patient.
