I am currently looking to buy a horse and have my eye on a 3 year old filly that hasnt had any training. I have heard about it being dangerous to interact with untrained horses, but I am not only interested in riding I am also planing on doing alot of ground work and training tricks like, sit, laydown, bow and just alot of gentling I am in no rush to ride. I wanted to know your oppinion on this would it be better to get an older horse? Or is it ok get get a younger one?
I have worried about buying an older horse because I don't want it to have been abused or trained to like a person other than me and resent me
Any oppinions wil help
