Smile We finally did it :)

After many months of looking and trying way too many horses my daughter and I finally bought our first horse :) He is a bit older that I had hoped for but he has the right disposition for a kid's horse, lots of show and trail miles, the right amount of training and very healthy for his age according to the vet who examined him last night for us. He is coming to our barn Sunday adn I think am almost as excited as my nine year old .

p.s. sorry no pictures but I don't know how to download them off my camera.

Glad you found a good horse for the kids to learn on.

Well congratulations are in order for sure! Hope you have many years of enjoyment with your new fella. What breed is he by the way? Would definitely enjoy some photos if you can download them soon. My first horse was a 13yr old National Show Horse mare with tons of experience too. I know how exciting it can be to own your first horse. I could barely sleep when I bought my own horse as an adult. Like every Christmas wrapped into one!

He is 19 registered AQHA. He has had 3 owners before us including the farm that bred him. The last two owners were preteen/teens who used him for 4-h and equestrian team. He is calm and easy going but social which is just what I was looking for to be a safe experience first horse experience for my 9 year old and my timid self.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

About that age many turn in to babysitters. My mare was worth more at 18 than 8. As one fellow said when I put my daughter (9) on a horse I want it to bring her home. That was my mare he was describing.
