I am now having to start looking for a new horse. My senior gelding had to be put asleep a few weeks ago.... I am just looking for a gentle pleasure/trail horse. I was curious how any of you found your horses. I am a bit scared having to look on Craigslist type adds. Worried I am going to get scammed or a bad horse I can't handle. Have any of you bought from horse traders that weren't bad? Or individuals in your area? Or have you used rescues? My gelding I found at a rescue in Colorado he turned out to be great for me.I now live in Texas and I am looking daily at some rescue sites. Just haven't seen anything yet that seems to be right for me to check into.And these horse adds with photos of people standing on horses and flipping off the backs of them is just waving *Big RED FLAG* for me.
Thanks for any input~
