The Standardbred looks funny... idk why just something about his head.

I like the Belgian. He is really cute and looks really smooth to ride.

1st one is just impossible to critique from the pic. 2nd one is very cute, he looks like having pretty long back though.

I really like the Belgian, if you're willing to put the training into him so he can reach his full potential, but he's waaaay overpriced. Belgians are a dime a dozen, just check out any auction, and this one is hot and unregistered. If they'll take less money I'd look into him.

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

Eventer89-- I don't see anything wrong with it.. lol.. its what most standardbreds look like.. also, I could care less about the horses' appearance;)
Also, thanks :) I like the Belgian too

Kitten_Val-- he is cute.. appearance isnt a biggie :)

EternalSun-- Thanks, I think he is overpriced too.. maybe around $1600??

Thanks for your responses :)
Also, I am really short on money.. so i am leaning towards the standardbed.

I know standardbreds are usually sweethearts. Ask for more pics, but if you really like him and no health issues, I'd say go for it.

Thanks guys. Also, I am only 13, so I need to save up lots more money to be able to pay for him, hay, boarding..etc.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what I could do to earn money fast?

Also, about how much would it cost for the 1st year of keeping a horse?

If I earn the money, and are ready before he sells, I will go check him out in person, and try riding him. But. I really need the money... ideas??

I need about $1500 more money to start with... but I need to do somehing that earns money constantly... here are some of my ideas::

-make jewellery and sell at market every week
-pet sit(I am going to be posting posters around)
-dog walk
-exercise horses for people when they don't have the time (lunging, riding)
-do more chores around the house to earn money..

But, one slightt problem.. we live in a small neighborhood, and noone needs any babysitting or dog walking;... and i cant drive to other towns.. maybe i could just do some odd jobs or something...

Thaanks for all ur guy's help, and if u could help me a bit more that would be great!! but, if not, its okay, i appreciate what you have done already :)

The standardbred is available for lease, so I would go with that if I were you. I'm sure you know, but horses are crazy exspensive, and at 13 without a steady income, its not easy to try on your own. If you have your parents to back you up in case you don't have money for board one month, or vet costs in case of an emergency, then thats ok. But if not, then I think you should stick to partboarding/leasing at most right now.
But, I love standarbreds! And I love their big heads. If it were myself, I'd go with the standardbred if he was healthy and sound.
