    Critique horses for sale!

    I'm looking to buy my first horse. I've been riding for 2 1/2 years, and I'm solid at walk, trot, canter and gallop in Western and English, and I'm fairly experienced at jumping.

    I'm looking for an experienced jumper no older than 15 years old, mare or gelding, who can jump at least 3 feet (almost everything I'll be doing will be no bigger than 2'6), can go barefoot, and can do some showing. I'm not a competitive rider, but I like to go to some shows. And that's basically all my criteria right now.

    So here are the ones I've found so far:

    Which ones do you like the best, and why? Thanks in advance, I know it's a big job!

    I LOOOVEE Lucky the Arab X. He seems to really love jumping, and he's so beautiful. At first I liked the Quarab, but she just looks irritated in all her jumping pics. That could be the rider, though, too. I like Kee Kee's Champ, too, but she is older, and I'm just a sucker for thoroughbreds! =P

    I don't see the irritation in the Quarab?? Maybe I'm just missing it lol, but the ears don't look pinned in any of the jumping pics.

    I really like Kiki (the thoroughbred) too, and 15 isn't TOO old, she definitely has lots o life left in her! And a really good price for her too

    I'm putting my thoughts in the order you put the links on lol :):
    1. I would steer clear of the pony because you will grow taller (If you are younger lol).
    2. I would also steer clear of Lucky the Arab Cross because he is very hot and just wouldn't be a very good first horse.
    3. I would steer clear of a 4 year old. They don't have too much training and an older horse will be able to help you more instead of you having to train him.
    4. I think Kee Kees Champ would be a pretty good first horse. She knows what she is doing and is a good size.
    5. He is very cute, but still too young for a first owner in my mind.
    6. I think Pennie would be an awesome first horse. She seems to be able to do everything you would want to do with her.
    7. This is also a very nice horse that I would consider in your situation.

    Whatever you do decide, I wish you luck and happiness :)

    Thanks, horsea :) good advice

    So I'm narrowing it down to (of the horses I've found so far that I've liked) #4, Kee Kee's Champ, #7, Jewel, and possibly #6, Pennie. I'm not totally sure if I really like Pennie, though...

    Pennie is my vote! But would I pay $4,800 for her? NO WAY

    Right now you can get a pretty darn good horse with papers for that price, and at this time I've seen some lower... Just my opinion.

    I know. Horses are expensive! But I haven't found any that fit my criteria for less than $4000 in Alberta.

    Not sure about your location but have you looked at these horses?

    Big Stout 7yr Gelding

    Show Jumper or Eventer

    Youth, Adult, 4H Pony, Club or Just Trail Riding

    Beautiful Aqha Mare

    Gray Mare Breedingstock Paint

    Not sure...Just something to look at

    Some are still prices a bit high...But you can look around and talk with horse people in your area, they might know of some horses for sale.
