    I tend to honest too. Rescued some horses had their shots, teeth and feet done and was giving them a way. People would come over and I would talk them out of getting the horse.
    I would rather that then they get the horse and wasn't to happy.
    Have you looked at rescues in your area?
    You have to be careful even with rescues but maybe you could find a good horse with alittle age on it perfect for a child.

    No doubt! My next one, I watched born, will be my handling only every step of the way. I like that route, nobody else's baggage to deal with.

    Wish I wasn't looking for such a young kiddo, I have plenty of youngsters but he's just not even close to that point yet and they've also begged for my old ladies but my daughter would be very, very angry with me.

    Hey MF I actually know a QH gelding for sale, he's been shown in everything from english, pleasure, halter, barrels. He's a pretty good all around horse anyway. No idea of price but I can probably get the number if you wanted.

    gawd, if I had enough experience to raise them up from a young age, I'd do it. I know -exactly- what you mean about other people's baggage. It just seems like, these days, it's too much to ask for a well-trained horse. Every ad I come across is, "he's a great horse BUT-"

    So tired of the buts! :P

    Do they have to buy a horse? Why not lease. Is that something you'd be willing to think about?

    If you don't want to part with your amazing been-there-done-that-won-babysitting-first-prize horses, maybe come up with some sort of a lease?

    Just throwing some ideas out there :)

    I have a friend who drove 3 hours to see a beginners horse who has never bucked in his life. Has done jumping, dressage and pony club with a 10 year old girl. They got there and the horse was skittish so she asked the ten year old to rider her first. The ten year old hesitated but then hoped on. She was bucked off and broke her arm... Good way to sell your horse

    I put 1000 miles on the car last weekend looking at 2 horses.

    # 1 250 miles north in Iowa, selling as a driving horse, no cart, no harness, owner was going to try and borrow from the neighbor but didn't get around to it.

    # 2 250 miles west in KC MO, 17.2 Hands, been everywhere, done everything horse. When I get there the only place to ride is up and down the gravel driveway or the road in front of the house, barn sour, like driving a Mac truck. They knew I was looking for an english horse, I brought my saddle but the only bit they had was a long shank curb. Oh and the horse was 16.1 hands.
