Okay, well im not a first time horse owner and I have been around horses since I was 3. (im 17 now..) on the ground im fine with horses not scared or shy to lead them around but in the saddle I've still got that fear. Anywho, im going to see a horse thursday and im wondering - what questions should I ask the owner? I mean she cancelled on me yesterday to come see the horse; which I was not happy about. Anyway I know to ask about the coggins and feet and any vices, training, etc. but I just do not want to end up with another horse that is not right for me. Thei nfo I have on him is that he's a 9 year old grade quarter horse. Came from florida and while he was in florida he was on a womans farm who just had him for her grandkids to ride so she said he is quiet. But she said he just needs to be ridden..and in another ad I found that she posted 3 months earlier said that he needed an expierenced rider. Which kind of worries me because she said he was quiet and I want a quiet horse. So im trying to be optimistic and think she only wants an expierined rider because she wants him to go to a good home..anyway he's also barefoot and I have a few pictures of him and he seems like a very docile animal. So after getting very off topic with this
my questions are; what are your opinions on this and what do you think I should look for when going out to see him? Thanks for reading my essay and im looking forward to hearing from you guys.
