What Do you Think fo The Girls?

I may pick up another horse for when I move for trail riding, I've trained to finish a few horses now so training is no problem. Which do you all like the best?

I like the 3rd one the best. Although she's not for a beginner, you can get her to where she can. She's cute and 8 is a good age.

First horse, I don't like how all the shots are on an angle. It gives you a false impression of how she looks IMO. Though since you don't have a problem training a horse, you might want to look into her.

Second horse. No conformation pictures, no pictures of her without a saddle on. The description says she has spots on either side, but for me, if I can't see it, I don't believe it. They also don't give an exact number of years since she's been ridden. Was it 2? Was it 3? Was it more?
Also how they worded that her daughter's show horse is now her trail horse, is that the horse they have for sale? Maybe it's just me, but I found it confusing.

Third horse, she's a nice horse. Looks like she'll make a great project horse, and you won't have to go about introducing the saddle and everything.

I guess it really depends what kind of training do you want to do? Do you want to have a 2 year old? Or would you rather take on an older horse?
They all seem like a good training choice to me.

I actually prefer the younger ones they tend to soak things in more easily :) I just do basic training. Nothing like western pleasure or english, just so they ride :)

If you prefer the younger ones, then go with the first. She looks kind and from what I can tell, she doesn't have any major conformation faults. :)

I hope I helped.

Of all the ones posted I much prefer the first one tho I am not a fan of her coloring. I like foals or youngsters. You know they havent been screwed up with training and you are able to build a bond right from the get go and are fully responsible for their training.

Prefer that over fixing an older horse.
