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

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

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

There is something about riding down the street on a prancing horse that makes you feel like something, even when you ain't a thing. ~ Will Rogers

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.

quarter horses.....simply the best

I really love the grey and the dark bay

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.
