I've never gotten to pick mine just came across my (3free) in my life and that quarter horse I bought, he was a good boy just had a choppy gait that hurt my back so I sold him to a neighbor.
Each horse has its own personality don't it?!
If I had to pick one I think I would go by its mannerism, I want CALM now ha ha ha!!! And look I don't think I have a calm horse..Yet
I sort of rescued Snipper and Patino. Owner in jail, his brother who took care of the horses ran out of money, they were in a flake of straw each a day. He was ready to take them to auction.
Beau was just for sale, owner had a bad back, couldn't ride anymore and we were looking for a quiet, tall horse for hubby(6'6").
I pick them if we click. Horse has to be interested in being with me. Nor for food or treats, just for company. No matter hoe well trained, if it doesn't click, horse is not coming.
We live with our horses, they're 10 feet from my house. I don't want a piece of equipment only, if you know what I mean
