These Horses

Can you guys tell me what you think of these horses? Either individually or just your favorite. All of them are off the track or didn't have the drive for the track. They are off a rescue website and I am considering one. I'd love to use said horse as a back up trail horse for myself or my husband. Possibly use it for walk, trot classes. I'm willing to pay for a trainer if needed.

Toy Diamond
5 yrs old
Trail broke

Max's Noble Lady
9 yrs old
"Appears Sound"
60 days on her

Another Super
17 yr old
Trail ridden once.

Deputy Indy
8 yr old
Only sound for flatwork

Kid Cugat
7 yr old
Has large ocellettes but is riding sound and raced with them. 44 races under his belt

This one is my favorite. Obviously because of his color. Which is why I'm taking a step back and not jumping in.

Eaton Stab
Never raced
3 yr old
Injured during training. Will only be sound for flatwork.

If I was looking for a Standardbred, I would prefer a trotter over a pacer. As for your choices, I like the first one and would avoid the 3 year old altogether.

Toy is a good age and has trail experience. The 3 year old is barely broke and has medical problems that are not going to get better.

It's trail broke(thats what you want to do with it right) it's a gelding, young but not too young, nice height & apparently sound.

I think my favorite is Another Super. She looks like a pretty reliable mount.

Iride- I know (sigh). He's beautiful but I'm not sure how into keeping humpty dumpty together I am. I like Toy too.

Aztec- Thanks. : )

I'm taking Eaton off the list. He'd probably be something that I'd just end up looking at in my pasture. Since I only have 3 stalls that's not something I want.

I like the Kid Cugat. I would stay away from the gray horse. He is still not sound.

Why do you like Kid Kevin?

I like the 16 year old Standardbred, the one doing the indoor obstacle course. She looks to be dead quiet. If I were looking for a trail horse, I would start there assuming the age isn't too old for you. I like Indy too, but his video doesn't show any indication of if he'd be good on trails.
