Actually it's not for me, haha, it's for my boyfriend... he is a MAJOR newbie. This is just future dreaming and general curiousity, he wants to get into riding but has no experience and was worried about making the horse uncomfortable. I figured I would come here to solve our little dilemma!
Of course to the other questions, he would be interested in pretty quiet riding, definitely nothing competitive, maybe a really long ride here and there. He's more interested in being able to be my 'pony pal' haha. He's a beginner. Aaand I definitely wouldn't be training him by myself, we'd be up to some serious lessons and book learnin' before he gets his own horse. :P
smrobs: Your comment was really interesting! It makes sense that a shorter back with stronger supports would be much sturdier in comparison to a longer back. I love learning about conformation stuff, I can't get enough of it haha.
