    I'm not trying to pick fights (at all - please just tell me to knock it off if I'm being rude, again I'm not) but I find it strange that you never cantered yet bought a horse. I know a lot of people do that, but still.
    Anyway, no one can really help you become a confident rider besides yourself and the horse. If you trust yourself, then good - you'll most likely trust the horse.
    First thing to do is RELAX. Take a deep breath. Think of only positive things, and thinks you want to accomplish - not do wrong.
    That's all I can really say - the rest is up to you.
    It also helps to ride a good old school horse - that'll boost your confident up. Also, seeing someone else ride your horse helps, too. Good luck.

    It is no fun at all when you don't get along well with your horse. I don't think it is fun for either you or the horse.

    I do wish you luck with whatever you end up deciding.
    i do get nervous when im on my horse. I know if I ride her alot I wont be AS nervous but sometimes she jsut acts like a plain old a$$. Like bucking and rearing, she almost kicked me yesterday. I don't know im going to put her up for sale probably and get her a good home where they can refreshen her training. Then ill go look at school horses for sale. I found a 12 yr old AQHA that is beginner safe, is 12 too young or should I look for older horses still.

    I just posted for sale ads on my horse on the net. Im selling her for 5000 and someone has already called me about her!

    A horse that bucks and rears is too much for even the well rounded beginner slightly intermediate rider. I'm glad you are selling her. If you could give me your general location (state/prov will do), I can help you search for a horse that's WAY more suited for you. What is your price range and some specifics you'd like in a horse?

    NY, NJ, and CT are all places that I can travel to look at a horse. I like a somewhat pluggy horse. A lazy horse too nothing that will take off on me. When I sell my mare I will be using that money to purchase a beginner friendly horse. Im selling my mare for $5000 (is that too much??) so if I get $5000 for her my price range would be from $0-3000. If the horse is good id be willing to pay $4000. Id like a quarter horse but it doesnt have to be a QH. Just something beginner friendly. Also I want a confidence boosting horse. I don't want anything ancient (over 20) id like something that's 12-18. I ride english as well. Thanks so much!

    I would definitely Inquire on her. The horse has been ridden by a 13 year old but make sure you ask "Is she beginner safe at the present time?"
    She sounds safe, but the ad is a little vague. I'd ask for as much information as they have on her, as well as any vices(problems) she may have.
    A nice older gelding, about 14. Ready to please. :)
    Sounds like a great horse but I am curious as to why they said "No Trials." I would definitely ask why they are selling.

    There is quite a few that I liked and that is just for NY.

    I emailed them all. If you find anymore let me know. Thanks so much for your help.

    Let me know what they say as well. I'd hate to have you getting another raw deal on a horse. I'm sorry you've had such bad luck so far!

    Yea it sucks because she acted so calm at her old owners. Now we brought her here and she's so spunky. Maybe she's feeling better??? Who knows though, just goes to show people do lie. She's definitely not beginner safe...

    Woman said she's not for a beginner.
