Alright, I am TOTALLY new to horses, so you're going to have to bare with me when I say totally foolish stuff!! :roll:
What breed would you recommend for someone with these requirements...
-needs very gentle horse to gain confidence
-nothing too huge or intimidating
-something that would be a good trail horse
Also, would it matter if it were a gelding or a mare? I've heard mares tend to be 'temperamental'...is that true or just a myth?
I really just need a good, sturdy horse for recreational riding and trail riding. I very highly doubt I would ever do any sort of competitions.
