Ok so I'm looking at leasing a local horse. He's a 9yr old thoroughbred and is 17.2hh. The ad says he would suit pony club,show jumping,hunting. Owner belives he has potential but he hasn't done any showing. He's jumped to 90cm at home but has jumped over the hurdles at the local race course.
I was wondering you're guys opinions on if he's worth going to look at.
I'm a pretty decent rider and can ride at walk,trot,canter. I learnt to ride bareback but I havn't ridden in about a year and havn't done any jumping.
I'm about 5'6, would 17.2hh be to tall?
Especially being a young tb.
Any advice would be appreciated.
