Hey, so I'm vaguely keeping my eye out on horses (i'm not LOOKING but I'm not "not looking") to buy but I am not sure about age.
In the past I was into competition but I don't really want to do that anymore, so I am more looking for a low level all-rounder and pleasure horse.
Anyway my plan had been 15-16hh and between 6-10 years old, broken and quiet but not necessarily educated (can't be TB). Although I've seen a 12 year old QH that is good price and seems alright, but do you think that is too old? It is a bit "aged".
It's older than I've ever considered before but I was talking to my mum, and it could save me a fair bit of money if I buy a slightly older horse, and I'll hopefully still get 7-10 years of good riding before I look at retiring it. It would be harder to resell if I had to but not impossible, right?
