My personal friend who can *handle* a horse a walk/trot/canter/ small jumps, but she is not a good rider, she has RUINED a fantastic horse.
Beginner riders typically get a horse, either too strong for them(they get scared and quit riding), get bored and quit riding, or they gain bad habbits, and ruin great horses, and neither horse nor rider advance like they should.
Take lessons until your an experienced rider, and can handle many different types of horses with all types of energ levels, gaits, and problems. Then look into getting a horse.
Im sorry that I am not giving you the answer you want, but instead one you should listen to.
VERY well said!
