Okay, so I have a friend with horses and, she is selling quite a few. I have really fallen in deep with a tri-colored Curly mare with a sweet/loving/caring personality. She is also the 'Big Boss' out in the field. I am going to make an appointment to ride her but every time I 'Try out' a horse, it get's awkward because I'm not sure what I should exactly try. I know to try all her gait, backing up, possibly lunging but seriously what else?! I've got writers-block about this except with horses. Horses-block. Anyway, I will list all my questions here:
Are Curly horses considered 'Rare'?
What should I do to 'Try out' a horse I'm considering buying?
Whats the Curly breed standards for good confirmation?
