Going Horse shopping in 4 days!

Well my mom and I are going to FL to go horse shopping on Sunday-Wednsday! I'm REALLY exited! We are looking for a 16.3+ Novice-Training level packer, and my trainer's friend has about 11 horses lined up for me! I can't wait to look, all of our team has found horses down there so I am extatic to go looking!

16.3HH+ warmblood or TB, novice-training level eventing packer with good dressage backround. Nice temperment on the ground, and just a click with me and sed horse

Does it have to be 16.3 HH +? Just wondering because you could find ALOT of great horses that are still in the 16HH range that are N/T/P packers! Just keep your mind open! I'm excited to hear about the potential new horses when you try them out though!!!

^yes, just about, because I am 5'9" and still growing, and I have a long torso, arms and legs, so I need alot of horse under me! Just to put it in persepctive, my mom fit almost perfectly on an 18.2HH horse for her dressage mount

oh geeze! I'm jealous of your height. I'm used to being too small (i'm 5'2"). What the heck breed was your mom's dressage horse?! Haha.

^haha! I LOVE being tall, I am taller than both my parents at this point, well, I'm just as tall as my mom! Appolloux was a percheronXfresianXwarmblood, he was a dappled chestnut with a star and a snip, and a few white socks I think, he was never placed lower than 2nd

wow! What a cross! I'm in love with Warmbloods and Draft crosses (even though I think they're virtually the same thing). Love the way his name is spelled!

My mom is shorter than me and my dad is average height. So i'm destined to be short forever...boo... haha
