So I have been riding for 4 years. I am a hunter jumper. I am almost fearless. (my only fear is truly a fast and bouncy canter.) I am fearless 100% when it comes to jumps. Point me at anything and I will find a way to go over it. I have trained 3 horses since I have started riding. A QH filly who is now a top lesson horse, a pony more who has since been sold for 4 grand and a grey pony who had a bucking and spooking problem and is now in a lesson program.
So I moved recently to a new state and am now looking to buy a new horse. My parents keep insisting I should get a well broke, bomb proof horse, that already knows its job and requires no further training. (they don't even want to get a horse that I would need to transition from western to english.) But I want to get a younger horse who has some miles under saddle but could still use finiishing miles. But they keep insisting I shouldnt.
I feel like if I get the horse my parents want it wont challenge me enough. But my parents insist if I get a young horse it will be too difficult. (even though I've already done the adding miles job before)
SO I just want input. Thanks!
