Beginner Rider

Hi guys, :3

So me and my mum have decided to buy a horse for me. I haven't done much riding, mainly walking and some light trotting on an about 15hh gelding (Which is good height for me) I was wondering what breed or what type of horse would be good for a beginner?

Well it honestly depends on what you are comfortable on do you feel good on the 15 h gelding? Also don't focus too much on breed just focus on finding a horse with a gpod personality and good training. Have someone horsey help you look and go with you. Don't fall in love with the first horse you see sometimes the ' ugliest ' horses turn out tp be the best ones you'll ever find :) good luck

At your level of skill I would suggest considering a lease and regular lessons. Horse owning is much, much more than just riding - is your family knowledgeable enough and do you have a good plan of how you will keep, feed and care for the horse? Good luck with your decisions!

I totally agree with Sarnada.

I think you should hold off on buying a horse and get lessons on riding and horse care. There is a lot of care involved with a horse and the cost of them can get very high, especially if you are uneducated and do something that compromises your horse's health.

You can always take lessons while you shop for a horse... That way when you have enough time in the saddle to be ready to own your own horse (and to team up with your first equine partner!) you'll already be well along toward finding the ideal horse for you. The time you spend in the saddle taking lessons will also help you determine just what you are looking for in a horse.

Finding the right horse for YOU is the goal. He's out there... . I wish you good fortune in the search!

Can't add anything else to the above posters. I'd lease and take lessons, at least until you figure out what discipline you want to ride. Try different riding styles too, english western dressage hunter-jumper you never know what you might like that you've not tried yet :)
