horse is 6 years old. My previous lease horse was not trained that well but he never bucked me of,reared,bolted ect. Well he only bucked once and bolted 2 times but I trained him to not run of to the paddock when I rode him bareback after experiencing that.
I can't get help from my trainer because she is busy and probably wont help me with the budget that I have, maybe I am scared to be told there will be no horse for me but in exact words she said "you wont be able to afford something trained with your budget so you will have to train the horse yourself".
I don't mind if the horse is not a purebred since im getting blood tests and a vet check I will find out if horse has any disease.
I feel like im a confidant rider and I taught previous horse to jump and some dressage. Though I tend to lose confidence when people call me unexperienced, or degrade my efforts in riding in a mean way.
I have sat only about 20 pigroots and sat 2 massive bucking fits and pigroots on one pony. Only reason I think I can handle the horse from reading and talking over the phone is that when a horse bucks or pigroots I don't get scared and hang on their mouth I laugh and push them forward but I have never sat crazy bucking fits on a large horse I have not fallen of when a horse has bucked or acted up and I have never lost confidence when riding that I can't get back.
I have Ridden 3 different horses that were green for about 25-30 rides..but they all were not aggressive or mean so im more looking for a horse that is not aggressive and when it is being consistently ridden it is fine.
So far the last 2 times this horse has been ridden he has not pigrooted but I know that's not a promise that he wont in the future.
This horse I rang up about, the owner has told me over and over he would never set out to hurt any one. He has no aggression and can walk calmly on a trail ride. I guess I need to find out what the horse is like and how it is exactly trained to see if I can manage it.
Another thing about the horse is that it supposably rarely spooks and will only for a couple of steps.
I am going to try and get a trial.
Im a person that never gives up if a horse is scared or needs to learn something, I wont buy a horse that is crazy but I don't want to miss out on buying this horse if he has a personality I like and is something special so that's why I am very likely to check him out and mostly because I have already organised with my dad to see him.
But it is difficult to say what I want to do as I want to train a horse that is ridden the Klaus Hempfling way which has allot of trusting and bonding to being with the horse before riding it.
I don't know what level rider I am. But I know for sure that when I was done with the previous lease horse he had no dangerous riding habits and was very respectful and safe on the ground. I had gained his trust which cured his separation anxiety and also had untrained his habit of pulling back. I know I trained and untrained allot of things with him and now he is being advertised to confidant beginers and for 5000$ but that is not what he is worth. He wont be as good at a different place and with a different rider.
The previous lease horse I found was advertised needing an experienced rider and so is this one. Im allot drawn to this horses decent conformation.
I Kinda think in the way in that after time when you develop a bond with a horse and establish that you are leader than you can get good results in the end as that is what I found out. All my troubles went away when I was leader and when I was trusted.
