I have been looking around recently for my first horse.
I am wanting something that would be calm, reliable, and steady since I am an advanced beginner (I've been riding for about 4 years but have had several setbacks: switching trainers, barns moving, etc.). I am looking to show and I am hoping to begin jumping in the nearby future, and looking for a horse I can move up on and hopefully keep for many years as I grow in experience. I have a lot of experience with dealing with different types of horses, and while I am lacking in experience in riding, I am very comfortable with all types of horses. I found this horse:
16.2 Dutch Warmblood Jumper - Petey
I was looking at his temperament scale though and it said a 4. Would you consider that too high for what I'm looking for, or just right?
