You have to be realistic about your abilities; are you confident enough to ride a younger horse? Can you handle it if it spooks, rears or bucks? 5 years is a very testy age, and it is imperative that the horse receives proper training, because they are not finished and are very impressionable.
If you don't think you can handle all that responsability, then perhaps you should look at an older, more trained horse. I'm not saying you're a bad rider, it's just a matter of being honest about your abilities.
That, and the wrong horse can scare a person... if the horse is too much for you, you need to speak up, you don't want to get scared off of riding.
