Can I have your opinions please?

I am looking at some horses for my step sister to ride since my dad is taking Cecil to Kentucky when he moves, and kayla is heartbroken.
And here is a girl I found and I fell in love! Yes she is a little fat, but that is ok, she will work it off fast.
Penny is a wonderful trail horse, she is one that i would throw an inexpierenced rider on for a trail ride she is one of them that will play "Follow the leader" on any trails, she has been ridden around (tractors, trucks, cars, 4 wheelers and kids) Her control of spooking consists of facing the object or thing that happens to be "spooking" her but i have never seen her buck, kick, rear, or bite. She is a great all around type of horse and gets along well with other horses, i have seen alot of mares come into a new pasture and act as they own it, she does not, i have never seen her act "Marish" towards anyone, i have had two other horses come in (new to her) and she hasnt gone after them or pushed them away from her grain she has never been selfish or needy over grain or food she is not the pushy type, she is the one that will stand back and wait to get her food weather it would be first or last she is very polite about it, i was told when we got her that she was hard to catch, as she had been out in the pasture for just about a year and wasnt rode we had brought her home and let her settle in the first night and my friend and i took her out and trail rode the heck out of her the next day i bet we had put almost 8-10 miles on some walking, trotting cantering and full fledge run,(she can be a very good horse for a person that dont like to go fast but does have speed when asked for it, as she kept up with my belgium quarter cross just fine) we have only trail ridden her i have not worked on any sort of patterns (barrels, poles etc.) so i have noticed that she was a little buddy sour the first trail ride but by the end of the trial ride as we were working on going away from each other on the horses she started to come out of that and didnt seem to mind it, she is a horse that loves to bond with one person... she has taken a big liking to me and i think thats just cuz i am the main one out there feeding grain every day, she is the first one to meet you at the fence but yet will stand back when everyone else pushes their way up... she is a very inquisitive horse and has that willing to please attitude.. if you have any more questions on her feel free to give me a call i have tried to explain her the best that i could i am usually up late (1-2am) so late phone calls are not going to scare me... If i dont answer please leave a message and i will call you back just as soon as i can! Thank you and have a wonderful day!

And then there is this guy a 22 year old Tennessee walker that I fell in love with. He needs lighter riders and I talked to the owner and she said all of our weights would be ok for him
Anyway a lite rider would be fine on cash and it would just be nice if he wasn't ridden too hard. He gets around fine and is a sweet guy that deserves loving. He does not like aggressive horses and tries to stay away from that. I also put waterproof turnout on him if the weather is bad so he does not chill.
He loves grain has had shoes and I have a pair here somewhere, I left him barefoot for at least 3 years now with minimal chips, I used bareback pad or rode that way, leads ties and loads as he was a ranch horse, would not put into a straight load as he does not back up in trailer, hates bot flies. Can fuss when leaving his herd but will go

I have more pics of him, but I have to go to the doctor so I will post those in a little bit.

But what do you think of those two?

RIP Minnie, 1981-January 15, 2010
RIP Maggie Mae I miss you

I really like the quarter horse more than the walker. I think for what you want she would be great.

I'd go for the QH mare. She's a really nice age & height & by the sounds of it, if the 22 yr old TWH already has problems, they may only get worse & he sounds a bit cranky to be honest lol.

I VERY much like the QH. She looks wonderful and is a perfect age. Good luck!

If the world was truly a rational place, men would ride sidesaddle.
