Okay so for the past three months I have been loaning a 16.1hh appolousa gelding from my riding instructor. He is school master and is truely an amazing horse. But my riding instructor has been nagging me to buy him but I can't afford the price he is wanting, so I am ending the loan and looking for a new 'project horse'.
I have been looking at a 3year old welsh section D mare as I am looking for something smaller than 16.1hh, I was just wondering where I would start with her if I do buy her, she has been backed. But what do I need to teach her, should I do pole work? And with a section d what age should I start jumping her?
