Why settle for either? So many horses out there you can find something you like the look of that is also sane.
I don't have a list of preferences. I find beauty in most horse heads but there are the occasional ones that I can't help thinking that's unfortunate and they are ones I am likely to pass up.
Whose to say it's "settling"? An utterly fabulous horse with a wonky head is bound to be cheaper.... as long as it's nothing that will cause any sort of medical issues, I would be head over heels to pay less because he's not "perfect".
Now if I was shopping for a halter horse, I would feel differently but I'm not. I want a safe, sound, well-trained riding horse and I'm not riding their looks!
