Who would you choose?

Hi everyone. I have narrowed it down to 2 horses that I am very interested in purchasing. One is a TB (currently racing), gelding, 4 y/o, 16.3h. The other is a yearling, filly, TB/Hanoverian, string tests to 16.3/17. Ideally, I'm looking for a jumper. Which one would you choose (the TB is the one in the red leg wraps).

I really like the looks of the first one.

ETA- the first ones only a yearling so you would have to wait 2 years until you could train her to jump. If you don't want to wait I think the second would be a better choice.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the first horse. He is stunning. I would get him for sure!

Thanks everyone, it's going to be a tough decision. I'm in no hurry to jump and have other horses to ride in the meantime. I'm a big believer in bringing them along slowly and it is the whole experience for me.

I would go with the filly.

Nothing against OTTB's (i am looking into a few) but I think you would have a more sound horse longer with the filly, than with the TB (please don't yell at me for this)

With the filly, you'd be able to train her your way, and not have to worry about someone else's mistakes.

I agree with appylover. But, I have a yearling filly myself, so I'm biased.

First one, most definitely.

I would choose the tb. He is a little older and is built wonderfully. Both are going to be green so either on seems to be a challenge. It just depends on how long you want to wait.

Good Luck

First one is very pretty, but I would have to choose the more
Experienced horse if it was me. Good luck with your decision! :)
