I've never heard that. That's a good one. Green and green don't go though everyone's right. SOMEONE has to know what they're doing.
I've worked and sold a black TWH with Pusher bloodlines. But he was 7 and already trained and shown, he was also registered and his father was world grand champion...he sold for $750..he wasn't my horse, I was just asked to ride him and advertise him.
Have you had experience with gaited horses? If you care about bloodlines and showing(the impression I got from your mentioning his ansestory) then you really need experience with gaited horses..saddleseat is way different. You may already know this. But even that gelding that was totally trained I wouldn't put a beginner on him..he behaved BEAUTIFULLY for me. But he didn't do well on a loose rein. He rode in a belham with CONSTANT contact.
Just a thought
I personally wouldn't pay 500 for. 4 month old. You've got some tine before you can ride so your looking at lots of ground work. For 500 you can get a fully trained horse. Heck, there's a 2 year old pinto I'm working with now who's broke for an beginner. He walks trots cantered crosses creeks backs will even canter from a standstill. $850. He'll mature at around 15.2 .
In the end you'll do what you want. But you asked for opinion's. I wouldn't buy a 4 month old if I were you and I have 11 years experience..I'd reccomend you spend a little more and get yourself a fully trained horse to learn on. It takes A LOT of patience to train young horses.. Posted via Mobile Device
