Hi I REALLY need some help, I am in the market 4 a new horse 4 myself, and mum said it can't cost any more than $3,000 and I don't know what breed 2 choose. Mum & dad said not a race horse or a mare. And not over 15hh not under 14hh. Iv had a horse before, but she bucked me off one too many times! So do any of you know what breed is the quietest? I really want a welsh Cob. If you do I could really use your help.
I really depends on the actual horse, not the breed. However being an ASH lover I voted ASH
A welsh might be a bit small, so if I were you i'd just look around for quiet Quarter horses and Australian Stock horses.
I think most americans will say QH and aussies will say ASH but my understanding is that they have alot of similar qualities. As Mell said, it depends on the actual horse but welsh wouldn't likely get you up to the size horse you want...
Breed doesn't matter. That's the first thing you need to learn. It's about the horse, does it suit you? Is it rideable?? Is it the right horse for you?? A breed doesn't make the horse . . . So find a horse you love that suits you whether it's a Tb, a WB, a mix breed or anything else.
You should look around and see what is available. You shouldn't set yourself on a breed. With that kind of money I doubt you will find anything but a cross bred so the options you put up won't work anyways.
Look around for a horse that matches your experiences and riding level, then consider the breed when you find something that moderately matches what you need.
Of what you posted, you won't find a welsh pony for less than 3,000. Not where I live anyways as for the australian bred I'm not familiar with and the QH well, I think it's a much more realistic breed. Every horse is different and not all QHs will be suitable for you but there are certainly many of them around. I have no doubt in my mind you might find one that works well for you.
