Hi everyone! I'm new here and just wanted to give a short intro. I started riding several years ago, doing mostly English. I took a break for school and have recently come back to the world of riding. After leasing and taking lessons, I've decided I want to venture into owning a horse. I have the finances, the time and the mentor ship I feel that I need to properly take care of a horse, so I think it's time. While I'm looking into buying, I'm not in a big rush. I'm looking into getting a project horse for now; something that's not yet finished but has potential. I would mainly be doing hunter/jumper. I'd like to venture into dressage and eventing in the future as well.
I was hoping you guys could provide me with some honest critiques of some of the horses I've looked into. Here's the first one:
He's a registered Canadian Warmblood gelding. He's only 1.5 years old, around 15.3HH and halter trained. He's on the thin side right now and his feet aren't pretty, but I would obviously deal with that if I got him. Apart from that how does his conformation look? Like I said, I don't mind a project horse, but is he too young and too conformationally messed to even bother? He's being sold for $1300.
