I just bought my first horse - he's a 17 yo TB gelding, "been there done that" and I am so pleased with his calm manner and wonderful gaits. Yes, he's older, but so well schooled, really, a school master. He was a deal at 3500. I agree with some of the posters to get more skills under your belt, and I will continue with my coach for as long as we need...
He is a real confidence builder. At first I was reluctant to buy a horse "that old" but now realize all along he is my heart horse. Posters commenting about financial commitment are right on as well. Its an adjustment. 4 shoes every 6 weeks at 190! And full board! Best wishes in finding your perfect match!
