Should I look for a breed?
Generaly, when looking for a horse I don't look for a certian breed. However, now that I'm hopefully going to be showing more, I'd like to look for something that could do what I want to do. I'm currently riding a few horses - two Hanoverians, an Appendix and then a pony.
I want to do Hunters (at schooling shows), Jumpers and Dressage. I'm not a huge fan of warmbloods, but I am starting to like them a lot more. I don't know how high I will compete, but I'd LOVE to jump 3'3" (at home at least) and school maybe 2nd level dressage.
The only huge thing is the price. I can maybe get a $6,500 horse at max. This summer I'm going to work and hopefully get paied. The horse budget in my area (I'm in CA) is horrible at the moment.
Anyway, should I look for a breed? Lately I've been thinking Warmblood, but they can be pricey. I don't care if I have to put a bit of training. Maybe something that'd done a few schooling shows, W/T/C and little cross rails. I have a wonderful trainer that will help me with my search, but I want to know ahead of time. I'm 5'4"(ish).
