Husband or wife safe horse?

Hey guys so my last horse we were going to get didn't work out :P Anyways I was looking at some horses and see a lot of husband safe or wife safe horses for sale. What exactly does this mean? Thanks!

Oh and does anyone know some good websites to look for horses? I've already looked on dreamhorse, equine now, and horse clicks. Thanks!

Husband or wife safe horses are usually beginner safe laid back horses with little to no spook or opinions. Many riders are women, many husbands are not riders :) that's why they're called "husband horses". Basically a horse safe enough for a real beginner to get on and ride safely. Horses like these are also great for inexperienced or timid riders, children and riders with challenges.

I can't see what part of the world you're in but many regions in the US have a local magazine as well as local horse groups of various types. Those are great places to look for a local horse. Also talk to vets, farriers and tack shops.

Cherie on the forum here sells very nice trail horses. I'm not sure where she's located though.. slipped my mind.

But for $5000 or so you will get a very nice horse.

I love my Arab - check the equiery. It has ads for your area (I'm in Maryland!) The Equiery – News & Views

For $5k you'll get a trained horse you could show with shows already under its belt.
