Help Me Shop/What to Look for in First Horse
So, I have boarding set up (I'm sticking with the barn I'm at now), now I can start horse shopping OFFICIALLY. As most of you have seen, I have a nice little mare that I have my eye on, and I am scheduled to go look at her on Sunday.
I have stated that I was going to let my HF family help me shop for my first horse. Here are my requirements:
--Beginner safe!! (I am a timid rider)
--Larger, as I am a larger rider
--10yrs or older, but not elderly
--Must be acclimated to being boarded outside
--Located within the state of Minnesota
--Owners willing to deliver for additional fee
--Pics would be helpful
Breed, color or gender are not important to me, as the most important is temperament. I am looking for a great beginner's horse.
I am going up to look at my first mare on Sunday, and I am a little unsure of what to look for in buying my first horse. I am on my own for this first visit, but my instructor said that if I was still interested in the mare after my first visit, that she would come up with me my next visit and make sure I wasn't buying a demonic pony.
So, What should I look for?
Luv you guys.
