    If you are looking english you have no need for all the $$ that has gone into the reining training. JMHO. I have had great experiences with OTTB's, and they do well as H/J, eventers, etc, and are much less $$ generally. Especially this time of year.

    I really LOVE that Thoroughbred. Beautiful conformation.. and good bone (for the breed) to boot. That horse looks like she could really compete.

    I would LOVE that third horse myself. Too bad I don't have the set up to take her.

    For a $600. Adoption fee, French Cotton (the third horse) looks like a great horse. Her description also sounds very promising and If I were looking for the type of horse you were, I would give her a very close look. She is beautiful. Good luck.

    I also just looked up that Thoroughbred mare's Pedigree. Lots of good horses close up.

    That horse is a real keeper..... (and me not in a situation to take her.. D*mn).

    I know, doesn't that stink? So many great horses, so little opportunity. Ha ha She is hands down the best option of the three horses posted. IMO

    The two year old HUS horse is, IMHO, way overpriced.

    The reining mare is beautiful, and promising, but if you don't want to do reining, then that's a dead end- you'd be wasting the mare's talent.

    The New Vocations horse doesn't catch my eye, but I'm not a thoroughbred person. I have, however, heard many negative things about New Vocations...

    Just my 2 cents, coming from dressageland. I REALLY like the redhead. Can't see a thing wrong with her, and everything right....she is gorgeous. Great neckset, super HQs, great bone and legs. WOW.

    Good luck-horse shopping is so fun, even by proxy!

    I would avoid 1 as it concerns me that its done too much too soon and same goes for 3 - TB's can be really laid back but this one is also very green and I'm not sure if the you have the facilities or experience to bring it on
    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).

    I know - I was very drawn to the TB too, they are a very misunderstood and versatile breed - just now always for the inexperienced person!!!
