Okay, I do think im going to pass on her. I really wanted a older gelding anyway. But she was local and caught my eye. I am looking for a good horse to use for the next few years, until my Percheron is trained and ready to go! Then the gelding would be used for my sister or friends to go riding with.

Any thoughts on this Gelding?

What do you all think about this little mare? 2 year old Haflinger Quarter Horse Cross. 14 hands. I like her, but is she bum high? Or a little sway back?

If I might make a couple of suggestions...

The gelding is nice, but he is 16, just a thought. The 2 yo, is another unbroke horse?

How about one's like these? Need more pics, but those are easy...

Love his "don't care" attitude, but he's looking a lot older than 16. I don't know how much they are asking for him, but I'd have his hocks checked...they look hitchy.

Not horrible for a trail horse but she has a very long back which can lead to back problems, a straight shoulder, a large head and not the best neck attachment. On the plus side she's a awesome color, and she looks like she has a kind eye. I wish I could get a front view of her, but go out and give her a try. In the end it's if you click with a horse that counts.

I would go with the palomino mare you showed on facebook. She's not bad looking at all

Reminds me of my first horse, Whiskey. Ugly as sin, but could go all day and night. Once we came to an understanding, she was perfect. I used to sneak out and ride at night, with nothing on her. She never, ever did anything like spook and run, buck kick,geeze now I'm going to cry.

I just wanted to add that a great horse and a poor horse cost basically the same to keep and care for after the initial purchase price. Buy a horse that is worth the money because in the long run you will end up spending just as much. That is unless a poor quality horse breaks down and you end up with costly vet bills...then it could cost you more.

OP, I think it would be extremely beneficial for you to make a list of qualities you are looking for in a horse. You have thrown around horses all across the board and none of them sound like something you are looking for. It sounds like you are very excited at the thought of getting a horse (rightfully so!), but it would be much better for you in the long run to take a breath and take the time to do some research and look for the right horse.

If you want, post some qualities about you and what you think you want/need and we can try to help you search. What activities/discipline do you want to do? How long have you been riding and have you gotten any formal instruction? What is your price range? What is your zip code and how far are you willing to travel?
