I posted this on the trail riding thread, because that's what I do. BUT... there are lots of people on here who really know their TWH's... So I'm asking for feedback.
I'm looking for a quiet, calm, beginner suitable horse. Not because I can't ride, but because after my wreck, and given my age (65 in Feb.), it only makes sense. I've had all the challenges and excitment I need. Now I want to just ride the trails. Boring would be good. I need safe, but I'm not so stupid as to think any horse is totally safe. I just want to swing the odds in my favor. I've always ridden gaited horses...SSH's and racking horses so it's only natural to look for what I want in a gaited horse.
Dead Broke Flashy Confidence Building Geling!
I've spoken with the owner and I'll be going to try out the horse next week Saturday if he isn't sold by then. Anything I should watch for??? (He's 5 1/2 hours from us, or I wouldn't wait that long!)
