I like last 2 the most... And younger one still can be very nice and quiet. BTW, sorry for asking, why do you look for another horse?

I'm looking for an older, more well broke horse than Vega. I've been having terrible rides where i'm surprised I'm not seriously injured. I've been going back and forth about selling her and i've decided i can no longer work/ride her. My fiance doesn't want to sell her so we're keeping her, but he's going to work with her, and he said I can get another horse. I thought i would be able to handle Vega, but it's way over my head, and I don't want to send her off to get trained because i don't want to spend the money for her to be excellent there, but when she comes back, she's the same as she was before.

Very sad. I'm glad he wants to keep her and try her out. Personally from what I've seen (you posted) you looked good together. She's a nice horse and may be just need more riding (she's young). I hope he'll be able to slow her down! Actually, if you can find a really good trainer it'll be still cheaper to send here there even for couple months (well, I'm looking from the position of $4500 for some horses u considered). And u can ALWAYS talk about money-back guarantee if she won't change. I was very lucky to find trailer-loading person like that: he said upfront that no load - no money from me.

#1 When they say strong willed it worries me... Does that mean he is strong willed in things going HIS way? Idk, They didn't give much of a description.

#2 I think he's exactly what you are looking for! But i'd want to see him in motion before I make any final decisions. I do like him though

#3 You can't really tell a whole lot by the add, but I think he's worth seeing in person!

#4 I think he would be an excellent show option! He's pretty too, but you should ride him before you make decisions.

#5 He's cute, maybe email for more info though. The add wasn't very detailed

Personally I like #2 the most, then #4, then #5, then #1, then #3

I'm really drawn to Tango and Oliver...and Jack (from my other post)

I'm going to talk to my BO about those horses and get her input on it aswell.

Kitten_val, i understand how it's cheaper to send her off to training, but i just can't work with her ATM. Not to mention her training issues, when she's in heat, she's borderline dangerous. She went after me and then hurt the BO's husband. Tom wants to do this, so i'm really not going to argue with him.

I'm going to print out those ads of the horses i like the best and just really study them.

I did e-mail the owner of Jericho and Tango asking for more pictures, preferably conformation pictures. Jericho's price does worry me a bit.. that it's so low compared to other horses that are similar to him.

I really like the unnamed paint. He seems to have that special "something" that peaks my intrest. One day I'll figure out what it is!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

#1 Nice looking horse, the strong willed part makes me wonder though

#2 He's probably worth looking at, very cute but his canter looks really strung out and fast

#3 This one seems like he's worth an e-mail

#4 That one is cute

#5 I wonder how he rides? He's more what "they" are looking for in the hunt ring these days...

I go... 4, 2, 3, 1, 5

Wow! Did she try to attack you and BO's husband? Indeed sounds scary.

Yes, I understand what you are saying. In any case good luck finding the special one!
