Not sure where to put this! Buying a horse and found one im interested in

Well, I'm looking for a horse to buy and found her.
I think she's gorgeous!
My mom even likes her. What do you guys think?
I wish she was a gelding though, darn. :(

I read some of your other posts and to be honest you should not be looking at a horse this young. I don't believe you have the knowledge to ride one this age and even 5-6 years of riding to me is not enough.

I am also concerned that you state that you only have $500.00 to spend and what if something happens resulting in an expense you are unable to cope with.

Owning a horse is a huge responsibility and expense.....very difficult even for people with better finances that you have.

Give it a lot more thought.

I agree with Spyder, 3 year olds even make me nervous and I have ridden now for 15 years. I would look for a horse with some experience and miles. Is she even broke to ride yet?

On the money part, I bought my horse for $500 but have paid almost 3 times that already in vet/chiropractor bills plus new tack and all those other goodies we just had to have before I even start him under saddle (nonracing saddle.)

Keep looking if you can, there are a ton of horses out there with some miles on them that need great homes for good prices. Im sorry to be negative!

I have enough money for any and all surprise costs. I did not ask for your opinion on whether I was ready to own a horse..frankly, I know I am.
And what do you mean not enough knowledge?
You don't know me or anything about me.


"very difficult even for people with better finances that you have."

You do not know my financial situation. I have more than enough money for this.
Once again, you don't know anything about me.


EDIT: Atleast rosie put it nicely. You had a downright nasty attitude and outlook. :3

I agree with what Spyder said.
On top of that, I am not a fan of this horse. I don't think she is attractive at all. Just go to an auction, you can get some cheap, decent horses.

I know I don't know anything about your or your situation. Just remember there is a lot to know about horses and you may belief you know enough to train, but in reality there is still a lot to learn before you try to work with a young horse of your own. Trust me I've learned this through experience. You won't know how much you didn't know until you learn what you didn't know before.

I'm not trying to be cruel, I just don't want you to make the mistake I almost made when I was in your same position. Just put more thought into it, and review all you know about riding and training young horses. There's a lot to it.

Who said I was going to train her myself?

No one did. Like I said, I do not know your situation. If you want someone else to train her that's fine, but I recommend not jumping into it without a good deal of thought

I think what she meant was any sort of ownership/contact with young horses is training.

Oops, There you go. She posted for herself.
