Choices on a youngster breed?!
Well I am aiming to get a youngster(2/3) to keep for a while to grow up whilst I bring on mare then for me to break in and keep as my riding horse..
So I LOVE arabs but they are sooo expensive like £2000+ for a yearling/2 year old and I dont have that kind of money.. Plus I enjoy jumping and I want an allrounder so decided maybe an arab isnt best. Next choice is welsh section d as I love them and they tend to be good allrounders and I can get a decent one for much cheaper!!
Just wondering what breeds you think would suit my wants? Or if I just scrap breeds and go based on what I want(Although with a breed you can guarantee height etc)
I'd like something to mainly jump with but also hacking and dresssage, not mental but with a bit of spark, about 14.2-15.2hh.
Iv always gone for cobby types but too be able to do higher jumping wise Im thinking maybe I should go for a finer breed?
