Well if you think about it, hes 1 yr he has to be 3 until he can be started under saddle. So I think by that time with weekly lessons and just riding when ever you can. I think it would be fine to get a younger horse only because you would have to wait a couple years for him to be ridden... You are going to wait to send him to a trainer to work undersaddle right?

Sounds to me like you have a good game plan as far as the boarding/lessons and schooling. ~ I have nothing to add to that game plan. Good for you on getting lessons while your baby is growing and learning.

I think he's very handsome. But then again... I love them all. I don't see anything that is screaming at me NO DON'T BUY HIM.

Do your research and make sure the owners are reputable and that everything makes sense and checks out.

Other than that...Welcome to the addiction!!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Is that true or what!

Good luck with your baby, and just think by the time he is old enough you will already have a great bond with him!

Sounds like a great game plan to me too. You should have a really solid relationship with your horse by the time you are able to ride him. He will be comfortable in his environment, comfortable with you and you will be much more experienced all around. Good luck. He looks great!
