    Possible new horse. Any glaring faults?

    5 year old mare. Green broke and has never offered to buck/kick/rear/bite. Right now I'm looking for something to ride around the backyard but I'm thinking of settling on endurance rides as a discipline. I was a barrel racer in the past, as well as a heeler, but I don't think I have that gallop gusto in me anymore.

    Just wanted to see I'd anyone saw any glaring faults. I went and saw her and she's got a kind eye, willing to learn and smart. I'm not the only one looking at her.



    Mare 2 is 14, and was beginner safe but hasn't been ridden in a few months. She was a little more hesitant with me but of course all that can be is bond building. I know the picture is terrible for confo but she has a thicker/taller build and more of the QH do what you tell her personality.

    I like the 1st one, only because she reminds me of my horse, Willow.

    I like # 1 because of the age, not that 14 is that old, just never like to get a Horse over 10, just a personal preference.

    # 1 looks better overall too

    One catches my eye more. She looks trusting, forgiving, and gentle. Love her build as well.

    Thanks guys! I really loved the first one but I just wanted to see if I was looking at her through rose colored glasses. I'm second in line for her so here's hoping the first people pass. But if they do take her, I think I'd still be safe with the second mare. :)

    I won't know for 2 weeks, but trust me, you guys will be bombarded with pictures, haha. There were so many to choose from but I always try to go with the ones I get a good vibe from, and I haven't been stomped yet!
