Another thing you might want to do as well is narrow your choices to two or three then go try them out and put them through the paces. Anyone can say something in a sale ad to spruce it up and make it sound good, but YOU have to see if it's true yourself. I've loved an ad I've seen, sounded so good and then the horse was a nutcase or even a complete different horse.
I've given this advice before, but I always do this. When you go to look at a horse, have the owner leave them in the field or pasture. You go get them, lunge, tack up, etc. Take them on a little trail ride if possible, that is what you want to do for the most part. Even from a short little trail ride you'll be able to know if what the owner said is true or not, and how the horse's attitude is.
I personally love the pally, and then I'd say the resgistered dun. I agree that she's SLIGHTLY overweight and needs to lose some. Other than that those are my favorites. Let us know if you go see them!
