    Glad to see you have decided against this.

    Never a good idea to get into a project anything, unless you have tons of money and time and want something to while away your hours while you waste money.

    And plenty of people in NC ride English, you just are not looking for them or can't figure out how to. But I see them all the time on FB and on forums.

    I live in Trinity NC, it is near the middle of the state. The best barn near me that teaches lessons, trains horses, and boards is about 35 miles away and I am thinking about going there because I have seen some of there horses at local horse shows and they almost always place well. There are a few other places but I've never heard anything good about them. I show English pleasure and I was thinking about doing western pleasure too but I also want to take some jumping lessons sometime but that might be a while before I can.

    Even if you had him examined, and found that he had an abscess that was obviously making him lame, there would still be no proof that the abscess is the only cause of his lameness. If you buy a lame horse, you will most likely regret it.

    I'm in NC too and yes there are a lot of western riders ( like me) but I promise there are plenty of English too . I started english and I know in the Charlotte area there are a lot of English stables. If you don't see a horse online you like try your local tack shop and ask if they know of any for sale or any places to look
