Basically, I'm looking for a horse in FL with solid w/t/c & at least started over fences, between ages 4 & 10, for no more than $5k. Basic dressage training would be great. I prefer a more forward horse, not one that is a kick ride. I want the horse to be SOUND - I've found a LOT of hopefuls that I've had to pass on, because they turned out to have past leg/foot issues. I'd be using the horse for eventing & jumpers, & I'm hoping to get a working student position at an eventing barn for this fall, so the horse would be coming with me to that. If I had to choose, I'd rather have a gelding, but I certainly wouldn't turn down a mare. I don't want anything pony sized, & I'd prefer them not to be too huge...around 16hh would be about perfect, but again, I wouldn't turn down a slightly shorter or larger horse if they fit the description otherwise. I've been doing searches on dreamhorse, equine, equinenow, & horseclicks on a pretty regular basis. My trainer thinks I'll probably have better luck finding what I'm looking for once summer comes around, but I'm really hoping to find something sooner than that.
