This may be my final decision (for those who have been following all the horses I've been looking into). His age makes me nervous, but I think he might have lots of life left in him, and since I'm more of a green rider, he might have a lot to teach me as well.
How does he look conformation wise? Do you think he will have the endurance to handle long rides and daily riding? Is he worth it, despite his age?
This is what his ad says: "18 year old, 15.3hh, National Show Horse (Saddlebred x Arabian) gelding. He is very good with kids and have shown him at local open shows and fairs and have placed fairly well. I believe he would be great for a 4H project, with a rider that is confident and is solid at the posting trot. He is GREAT for a child ready to start their show carreer or ready to have their first horse! He is also very good on trails and he is very reliable. He is very healthy, sound and well mannered, bathes, loads, trailers, clips, stands for vet and farrier and trail rides very very well. I don't have any issues with him. I am looking for a buyer a good home is a must. Please email me for more information. Asking $800 OBO I really need to find him a good home sad to have to sell such a fantasic horse!"
