I want something that is beginner friendly (I'd like to be able to teach my dad some basic riding skills too) but I can still take him/her to shows and do relatively well. I'm mostly interested in hunter/jumper.
This mare is very promising. I just wanted to get an idea of what you guys think of her conformation.
From her ad: 9 year old 15HH Quarter Horse mare, goes walk/trot/canter and jumps 3ft with ease, currently used as a camp/lesson horse for beginners-advanced riders. Competed at various local schooling shows and rated shows, was division champion in 2'6 jumpers. She is 100% sound and very well mannered on the ground.$3700 obo.
Here she is: http://i.imgur.com/A1tDs.jpg
