    Critique Potential Buys

    Okay, so I am unofficially looking for a horse. Meaning that I am working on re-convincing my parents, and finding potential buys. I finally found an inexpensive (because it's self-care, not because it's low-quality) boarding facility, and now I have to find a horse to put there! LOL.

    I am looking for a horse with some basic dressage training (yields to leg pressure, can get together "on the bit" and perhaps the start of collection), that jumps 2'6"+. I have done mainly dressage for the past 3 years of my life, and I really want to get into doing some lower-level eventing. Right now I'm thinking Beginner Novice level for next year, perhaps some Novice events if the BN level works out well.

    These are my top three horses. I have not been to see any of them yet.

    #1 - Thunder

    16.1hh 7 y/o Chestnut Thoroughbred Gelding
    Asking Price: $5,000

    #2 - Prime

    15.3hh 9 y/o Bay Thoroughbred Gelding
    Asking Price: $7,500

    #3 - Dolce

    16.2hh 5 y/o Grey Thoroughbred Gelding
    Asking Price: $4,000

    Opinions?

    I LOVE Dolce. If I were looking for another horse (and lived in Kentucky) I'd be all over that, ha ha.

    I like the grey the best. Has same kinda training as the other two (maybe not as much) and he is cheaper. I just like his looks. My second choice would be the first one. But I say go out and ride all three and see which one you like the best.
