    Okay, I'm back to searching for a horse. We have everything figured pretty much. I'm allowed a horse on the condition I continue lessons. I'll be boarding it down the road at my friends house probably. If anyone wants to help me search just send me a message. I just can't thank everyone enough for all the help and support.

I don't think that's really begginner any more. XD
    I am not sure anyone is really saying you are a beginner rider but suggesting you get a horse around the age of 10. A horse/pony's personality can make major changes up until the age of 7-8 so a horse who is amazing at 4 can change. Also, alot of the links you put on are young, like 4 and that is really young to be jumping and such. The horse I just sold is 10 and has plenty of energy, drive, go and loves to be ridden. He truely loves his job and is amazing so I don't think 10 is a bad age. He can jump 4'6 yet go for a beginner. The horse I ride is 21 and I can tell you he has no lack of motivation or pace. So don't let age fool you, it depends on the horse.

    I think Copper or Super Galloway would suit you. The others are to young or are suited for more expreinced riders. Good luck!

    So, we're not getting Copper but we rang up about another horse. She was sold. Then we rang up about Bentley. They haven't got back to us yet. Here's Bentley. Although it says great 2nd pony, that may only because they want someone who knows what they're doing and will do stuff with him not just walk around on lead line or something I'm assuming. Hopefully they'll ring us back.
