New, from Indiana
Hello everyone, I didn't see an "Introduce Yourself" thread so I thought I should post here.
I don't have a horse yet but I am working on it. Still have to get supplies first.
I also have a question, I'm sorry if it has been asked before too lol. When I begin to look for a horse, I am looking for a good trail riding horse. That is pretty much all I'll want to do. I have been told to look for Paints, QH, and Tennessee Walkers. Another person was telling me though that he has Percherons and they are excellent at trail riding. He said they are so easy going and hardly spook at anything. He said their temperaments are very good too. He said they may have this "slowness" to them but that you can awaken their inner horse, just like their ancestors. He said they were the horse of choice of the Knights, and that these horses would even guard their Knight if he was injured and being attacked.
So it sounds like they would be a good horse too, but would one be ok for a first time horse owner? I have riding experience just not any experience in owning a horse. I would say my riding skills are intermediate.
What would you suggest me to get? Would a Percheron be a good first horse? Thanks!
