I'd go for the Hanoverian, personally, I think she just looks the best conformation wise! :)
I also agree with Tryst, the last horse (the andalusian mare) looks a lot younger than four years old, maybe two years old? :)

Maybe two years? They said she was ready to start under saddle. I was hoping 4yo, I'm a toothpick at 100lbs but I wouldn't ride a filly as young as 2y. Those two Baroques are $850 each, the Hanoverian X is $1,500. I know I'm odd about buying, I wait around for really good deals only ;)

Only 850?! If you don't like that palomino send her my way! I'd love to take her out on the trails!

Tee hee, she's an El Paso mare, there are always a bunch of great trail horses down in Texas. Maybe it's my luck but I ain't found a single good trail horse under 1k in the northern states. Florida and Texas, best places for horse-buying in America

Wish there was horses looking like that Hanoverian X mare at that price! A horse like that where I live (NW Houston) would be 5k, and that's with no training what so ever, add some training and that's a 7.5k-10k horse

Phew. The Hanoverian X is advertised as quiet for kids, not trained fully, just a kiddie-level hunter. In Florida there's more emphasis on training... people really mark down/up horses for one or two levels (don't get me started on how many ribbons the horse has...). My absolute sweetheart, honest, police-trained, Eventing, all-rounder mount was sold to a trainer at 2k in a loafing condition, and I bought her some years later for 2k as a vice-free 3'6" show jumper. Doesn't look too bad either, imo. This mare loads into a trailer like it's nothing. She goes ANYWHERE, I'd say a horse is worth 10k just for that! A horse that is sensitive yet forgives is really hard to come by. Every horse is worth some cash, all of them are worth a place in our hearts.

Holy cow! That Hano mare for $1500!!! Snatch her up as a resale project if nothing else. Around here she would be a $5-7k even with very little training!

It's her or a package deal of donkeys for me ;)
I would buy her and the donkeys, but ugh! I don't have the room in so short a time. Her owner HAS to sell her asap, looks like she's a steal for someone else. Boy is she a beaut...
