Completely agree about the above. Decide exactly what you want and go try out as many as you can, get to know what kind of movement you want. Fast and flashy, slower and smoother, there is still a lot of variety in the type of mover you can get. Oh, and don't pass up some of the smaller farms you find, I know IME sometimes they have extremely nice horses. I bought my boy from a lady with less than 20 horses and he's unbelievable(all bias aside,lol). At 4 months old he beat a 2 year old stallion in the championship round at a KMSH show, he's never gotten lower than a 2nd in halter. We're just getting started showing under saddle.
