Good idea Rocky, if I decide to go up there. It'd be a haul..I'd have to fly up, rent hotel, vehicle, etc. so it's unlikely to happen. I might have if you hadn't posted, so thank you!!

I don't think you're being disrespectful of them, so no worries there. You'd mentioned that one of the horses was on the spooky side...well, they advertise just about every horse the same way..same verbage, slightly different. All are what appears to be solid, steady, calm, beginner safe horses. All seem to be right on the line of pace/vs/rack.

I've been really burned by horse people so I've been w/o for over a year. I'm really thinking of getting back to riding again and it just pains me to see that what people say and what they actually have are two different things. I know it goes with the horse world, more often than not. If buyers would just be more honest about their riding abilities and sellers more honest about what kind of rider their horse needed there wouldn't be as many re-homing/selling and the poor horses wouldn't be bounced from pillar to post. Wow!! Rant over, lol.

Dark Horse, where in central FL are you? I'm near UCF and it sounds like we have some things in common as far as looking for a horse goes. I too was considering a trip to GG to see what they had but I've put that on hold for now.

I've heard good things though I'm always leary when every horse is a "if you can sit on a horse, you can ride this one!" advert.

I'd still like to make the road trip up there for a few days!!

About the plantation shoes. They said that he gaits better with those shoes? People commonly rely on weight in the front to keep their horses in gait when really this just ruins the natural gait of the horse. For showing purposes it's fine but if you're just going to trail ride I would put your walker in kegs on all four feet. This way you won't have to worry about your horse using the weight as a sort of 'crutch' to gait and it will stay easy and natural.
