    Looked at both those sites-they have some really nice horses. I personally would not buy a horse w/out trying it out, but some people have done OK w/that. They certainly have the testomoials! Hoping all horse buyers find a "dream" horse!

    Well, I've found 3-4 horses that I'm interested in and next week, I'll be headed out to look at them. 3 are gaited and 1 isn't. BUT...the one that isn't is the absolutely most beautiful black morgan and used exclusively for trail riding. If anything could lure me away from a gaited horse, this might be it. It will be interesting to see how I adapt to a non-gaited horse.

    3 are in Kentucky...and we're headed to Lexington for the races at Keeneland and 1 is in Tennessee. A friend will be looking at her for me this weekend.
    This horsehunting is exhausting. And work expects me to work also....
    Sheesh!

    Good luck on the horse hunt. It's exhausting, but rewarding!

    Good luck. We will all be waiting for the Trip Report

    Ohhhh, the Black Morgan - that could turn my head, too.

    On the plus side of the Morgan: Even though it most likely trots, don't forget Morgans ARE gaited.

    Gaited Morgans aka Naturally Gaited Morgans and guess what?!? These folks are not far from Churchhill Downs, KY!!!! Whoo Hoo! Maybe another stop for you? If not to buy but to ride one.

    Wouldn't it be something if he/she is inclined to want to gait and nobody's worked on it?

    The BLACK Morgan mare, Maggie Marshall, is the Foundation Mare Of Record for the Tennessee Walking Horse

    I am excited for you

    Is it allowed to post the links to the horses' ads I'm interested in? (Don't you LOVE that sentence construction!? LOL)

    Here are the current candidates:

    Tennessee:
    http://nashville.craigslist.org/grd/3256889119.html <---Top candidate

    Kentucky:
    http://www.equinenow.com/horse-ad-624213 (Dancer) A REAL possibility

    http://www.horseclicks.com/big_classy_be....e/advert/255250 (ungaited morgan...but oh so nice! I might just be in love and I've not met him yet!)

    ANd...a mare I've been told about but haven't seen where Dancer is located. Here she is...but looking at her legs, I think she is too slight for me.
    http://www.equinenow.com/horse-ad-627460

    And here's another possibility:

    If it's not permitted to post these, I apologize and I won't do it again.

    Wow! You've got some great horses to look at. Are you going to try riding some of them? Hope you find your next heart horse!

    *disclaimer - I know nothing about gaited horses or Morgans - aside from my neighbors mare that I love*

    The QH girl in me is drawn to the Morgan, love the big motor he's got behind him. I think the first one sounds great though.

    I'm definitely going to ride before I buy. This will be my LAST horse and I'm going to be very, very sure....The top three are my top candidates. I was determined to get a gaited horse, but I LOVE that morgan. I'll try him for sure but I don't know how I'll adapt to a non-gaited horse. It will be interesting.

    I need safe, safe, safe... and right now, I don't need the most forward horse with a big motor. But I'm concerned that if I get too cautious, I'll be bored out of my mind when my confidence is totally back. I'm just really cautious right now.
