Advising a novice rider to pick a novice horse is a giving Very Bad Advice.

The old rule that the "younger the rider the older the horse" still holds true in virtually all circumstances.

Put another way, "green on green equals black on blue."

If neither horse is suitable (and that may well be the case) then the OP should cast their net wider. There's lots of RMHs in the world.
