    Smile Help Please!

    Hello there!
    I have been around horses pretty much my entire life! I grew up with my family owning a Quarter Horse and when I turned 10, my parents purchased a Quarter X Welsh for my birthday gift. (Best parents ever!)
    Anyways, our family horse was put down when I was still in high school due to old age and his declining health and my personal horse was sold due to financial difficulties when I was 16. (I am now 21.)
    I have been looking around at rescues to just work with (not really to ride or anything) and recently joined a website, Equine.com, to just check out what horses are even going for these days.
    I came across a Percheron that was good for my financial situation. The woman told me that one of her Percherons was a beginner-level horse and the other she described as slightly more feisty!
    But, to be honest, I've NEVER owned a draft before. At my old barn, there was a woman who had 8 Percherons, but I didn't get to spend much time around them.
    Everything I've read over the years has insinuated that Percherons are pretty well-tempered and very willing to simply please!

    I was just wondering if I DID happen to go in with interest of the more "feisty" Percheron, what would be anybody's input?
    (I consider myself to be an intermediate rider. I don't want to get myself into an ordeal where I must undergo training a practically green horse.)

    Need Help

    In my dealing with horses no matter the size you should know what your training is an find a horse that fits you. If you feel that you might be a high level rider then get a horse that fits that. I my self am a high level rider I might be able to ride the feisty horse. So just go by the way that you feel about your training. I hope that this will help you out. Good Luck on the horse
