So I have always wanted an Oldenburg as my second horse. I plan on buying a nice property in a few years with a big barn where I can have others board and train and when I do so I will be looking more into buying a new horse. I honestly don't know a whole lot about the breed, so if anyone does, please post info. Are the good jumpers? Well tempered? Too hard to handle? Energetic? Lazy? Anything you can tell me. I am only looking to do show jumping with the horse, no dressage or eventing or anything. It'll mostly be a show horse, as I have an Appaloosa that is my trail horse. How much does a well bred Oldenburg cost? Is it in the upwards of $10,000+? (then I can't afford one). If you guys maybe know of any ads of some Oldy's for sale please do post as well!
(if you do not like the breed, tell me politely and give reasoning. Don't just say I don't like them. If you give me enough reasoning it may alter my decision in the long run of getting one so I'd like good info as to why)
Thanks so much!
