I didn't read all of it, but I say find a horse that can do what you want it to do and well. Really, I wouldn't pick and prod at breeds. Its harder to find a horse that way. Say you find a TB that can do what you want and more, but you want a Warmblood. It would be best that you go for the TB but you settle for a less trained Warmblood. Later on you might regret it, just because you had to have a warmblood.

I see alot of people get horses they regret getting because the other horses that did what they wanted even more, but settled for another because they did like the one horse's color, breed, ect.

That's just my opinion on it.

But if you want to show a breed show that's another story But we wont go there.

I'm not planning on doing breed shows. Again - I was just wondering peoples opinions, and those breeds are something that I'm thinking. Of course if something that I really want (for example, a QHx or whatever), then of course, I'd definitely look at it and make up my desicion. I don't care to put some miles in a horse, due to the fact my trainer is very great, but I don't want something REALLY green either.

It's very interesting that good horses are so expensive in Canada and the USA. For 6500 $ you could buy a middle cathegory sporthorse in Hungary. That's a pity that you could not transport it so far. :(

You should not look for a specific breed, because you have very exact ideas about the horse you need. Just go and try many horses for sale, ride them, compare them.

But you wrote you will be paid better next year, maybe you should wait until that, because next year you probably will have more money to by a better one, or you will be creditable.
