If conformation is only important for show horses, why start the thread with the above??

Now this is the voice of experience, and believe me I have bought a lot of wrong horses, just by looking at ads and finding ones that will do, or are near, rather than looking for what I really want.

For people to REALLY help you here, you should write up a wish list of what your ideal horse looks like

Height
Age
Mare or Gelding
Experience level,


Then a little more about you, and what you really want to do, then people can compare the two lists and help you find the right one.

It's hard to help you as you seem to be all over the map. If you want to eventually jump some of the horses posted don't seem suitable for that.

I said around here, meaning that people in my area don't care about the comformation so the photos are pretty bad. I do though, that's why I asked.

Im sorry I'm not being descriptive, never had to go through possible horses to buy.

Height- Nothing above 17hh but at least 14hh
Age- Above 5 below 13
Mare or Gelding- I don't care at all :P
Experience level- Needs to be completed at training or just needs to be finished off. I don't want to do most of the training.

I would like to have an athletic horse. One who can jump and do cross country. But I would also like a nice trial horse. I will not be competing, never really wanted to. My price limit is $1500 but honestly that really is my limit, so I would prefer to be below it because I don't want to pull money out of my vet fund (Come's in quite handy, save some money in there and not worry about it) to buy a horse.

Um Is that enough? Sorry I never bought a horse before, really excitied!

I like the apaloosa and the thoroughbred. I wouldn't get the Arabian if you want to jump and also the part about needing to know how to handle Arabians.

The quarter horse mare does not look good to me. I've seen some really pretty Hancock blood line quarter horses in photos, and they are stunning. This girl didn''t see to get the best of that bloodline, for sure.

I really do like the Apaloosa, though, although better pics would be nice.

Location?? How far are you wanting to go looking for your new prospect? & Can you narrow down your breed preferences?

No more then 150 miles. Preferably much less though, I live In bernallilo county New Mexico. I honestly don't care about breed but I love TB's and paints. Arabians hold a special place in my heart to!

Out of the horses you've listed that appy seems like he would be the most suitable for you. He's also super cute! :]

I like the Appy the best. It could be simply because he actually has conformation photos posted with his ad, unlike the other horses, so you can actually tell what he looks like...

But I still like him. He looks put together fairly nicely.

Congrats on looking for your first horse!

OP, I really like the appy and tb that you posted, also. You'll just have to see them in person to see what they are really like and if they would work for you. Good luck in buying your first horse!
