As a new rider I think you are making a mistake with the younger horse. Since you don't have to buy either of them you can go with the older horse which, as you said, makes you very comfortable, and after you get a lot more experience, move up to a younger horse.
3 months is not even a drop in the bucket of experience. Go with a "confidence building been there done that and I'll teach you" horse.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
