From that horse for sale section on that website Sheer N Sheba is another I like. I am more then likely to find a good lesson barn to teach my niece, someone with more experience then me plus she can hang out with other horse crazy kids.

On dreamhorse.com I found two possible, these will be looked at first. Go to the horse name search button, then when you click on it switch the word/phrase to "is". The two are:

Tally Ho Governor's Chase, the one with the picture, and the other is Ima Whiskey Kid.


As I said earlier I'm going to see how easy the horse is to catch etc and more importantly how he/she acts under saddle. Which horse do ya'll like better? I just want a second opinion before running it by with my sister. Until then the search continues.

Scratch Ima Whiskey Kid, the ad has been switched to sold. The runner up was Dun It N Reminic, who is in North Dakota.

As far as Morgans go, I love them! And no, they are not pushy if they are trained right, it's the spoiled ones who act like that. I own a Morgan yearling, and I don't think I could have gotten a better little colt! His mother was the sweetest, prettiest, and most well mannered mare I have ever seen and when she was in heat she never got grumpy or had mood swings of any kind. They are both old style Morgans (mostly Lippett) and I am totally sold on the the breed! I am not saying that every single Morgan you come across will be like this, because every horse is an individual. I've seen Arabians who are bomb-proof kid horses and Quarter Horses who are very flighty and you would never want to put a little kid on. So look more at the horse that the breed when you are looking for a horse. Good Luck!

I've come up with a solution that involves less travel, money and a horse I know. My idea is to lease her my Morgan gelding,more then likely for free, until she is ready to advance to a horse better suited to eventing. Term can handle mistakes like a real gentlemen and is totally bombproof, not to mention sound. He would also be a good height for my niece,not to big and not to small, plus he isn't pushy.Now just to run my idea past my sister before showing him to my niece. I'll probably also do a lease contract to be on the safe side.

That sounds like that should work.

Quarter horses are the best horses in the world in my opinion ;)

When she's ready for her own horse, look at well-built draft crosses. I absolutely adore my Percheron/paint gelding's big build, quiet nature, and willingness to do anything I ask. He's built like a tank, but he's light enough that he can do pretty much anything I want (I plan on eventually getting into eventing).
