Exclamation This horse... Or THAT Horse!! AhHh!

I have to choose between LJS Mirador... And Eldorado.

LJS Mirador is a filly up for sale for $5,000.
Eldorado is the gelding I am leasing for $240 a month.

Eldo is great in dressage, but HATES to jump.
Mira/Dora is green, but loves to jump. She has only free jumped before.

I love to jump! I am training for Hunters, and I am not into the huge shows. Now, you can see them both in my barn, but I only have videos of Mira.


Thank you!

I would marry my horse. Yes, I just said that.

Get Mirador since you want to jump and she loves it, but only if you have a trainer to help you with her since she is green.

Your greatest weakness is God's greatest opportunity to show His strength through your life if you are willing to trust Him.

I would say get Mirador but as the other person stated you should aswell get a trainer. Depending on where you live you get get a horse that is not green over fences for $5,000 and that could cut down on lessons/training and could cut down the costs. And since your not into showing it doesnt really matter what breed/show experiance the horse has so Im sure you could find others! :)

Thanks guys! Thats been the common response... Now I just have to talk to my mom.
Which will be hard 0.0
Jettie- No, I can't. Not any that aren't Arabians.
It stinks, but its true.
SpiritJordanRivers- I don't need a trainer, I have trained many horses to jump before. They were all a sucess (see the Riding and horse Critique section... my "finished product")
Thank you though for the thought =]

Oh sorry! I thought you were my age for some reason . . . yeah I wasn't implying that you couldn't train your own horse.

Everyone can use a trainer. I have trained horses to jump, but so have lots of people. Doesn't mean you don't need a trainer. The professional rider who tains my horse still has my trainer watch her from the ground. You can't tell everything from in the saddle, EVERYONE benefits from having a pair of experienced eyes on the ground

I wouldn't buy either, look for an experienced jumping horse. It would save you a lot of money and trouble.

I don't really know much about picking horses, but a wise person once told me that attitude equals success. If you want to jump, get a horse that loves it too. It will be a lot easier on the both of you.
