Hi Horse forum folks,
I'm in California looking for a family horse for my daughter (almost 6 years old). I have found some good options (I hope) :) Hopefully dead broke and bomb proof.
My MUST HAVES: **dead broke **Child safe **14-15HH range **sound **nice slow beginner safe lope **under $5k that's my limit
My Nice to haves: **Dark coloring or at least BLACK HOOVES **less thank $5k
Any suggestions on good conformation and ... on paper until I go out...
I WILL BE HIRING A TRAINER TO COME OUT WITH ME FOR PROFESSIONAL ADVICE ON FINAL CHOICES, this is a must for me :)
What looks like a good bodied, well bred horse? #1 link is my top pick AQHA, Fresh cut roan, cowhorse and reining bred.
#2 per friend referral
#3 also per friend referral, this one a Morgan Mare
Triton Morgan Horses
The rest are blind finds from craigslist, which of course make me more nervous but possibly worth a look? Especially the Buckskin mare, she's got a video up
Reining/ Cowhorse Started Buckskin QH - well broke.
#5 (almost at the bottom-- CORONA)
Sale Horses - Mitchell Ranch
reduced* AQHA- 2007 Cowhorse/ Reining/ Cutting
Thank you all for your very welcome advice!!
