2 looks like a nice horse but if you are only wanting a trail horse then why spend out on a competition horse
I would keep looking if I was you - try to find a horse that has done enough trail riding to be proven safe and fun
I always forget that not everyone is a trainer.
I look at the Thoroughbred and I just ITCH to work with her.. from the ground up.. full start over with that one.. Long Lines, pen work, lunging.. and after a few weeks... getting on her and laying that great foundation and then seeing what discipline she tends toward.. dressage, jumping, eventing.. maybe even a little cattle work because she is not that huge.
Nothing finer than a really good TB (and I have had some really fine QH's, Warmbloods and so forth).
