Buying a Weanling/Colt
I'm not sure where to post this so I figured I'd start here!
I've been riding since I was 8 years old, so I have 13 years in a saddle. 2 years ago I bought my first horse, a 7 year old OTTB. He was incredibly green (used as a babysitter for the foals/young horses she had and was barely ridden.) He's been a bit difficult, but overall perfect thus far. I work with several different kinds of horses, young and old, as well as volunteer at a therapeutic riding centre. I'm also in school for Equine Studies and will be completing that soon as well.
Now, what I'm really here for is your opinions! I'm looking into buying an Appaloosa weanling in a few months time. Would this be a good idea for someone of my experience level? I have highly experienced coaches, veterinarians, friends etc that have all worked with weanlings/colts previously. I've heard some pretty terrible stories so I want to hear some other opinions as well.
Please don't take this as 'if you have to ask then you shouldn't do it,' I just want to hear what you have to say and about your experiences.
Thanks in advance!
