I know
It was just to show what I stumbled over right away Googling.
The Morab, IMO, deserves a chance. Don't know how experienced a rider B2H is or if her instructor would train. He's just too pretty to not check out.
The draft cross I posted because she said that's what she eventually wants.
I'm basically looking at horses who would be capable of doing what she wants and at the same time trying to ' get' her taste ....

Heck, if I had the money (and had more luck "clicking" with mares), I'd snatch that draft cross up. She's gorgeous. One thing I will say about green draft crosses, though, now that I've owned one, is that they can be a challenge. If Aires doesn't want to do what I ask, he turns into a 1300lbs boulder. Lol.

I just wrote out a long post and HF had dropped my log in
I agree with DraftAires that those horses look lovely but are all too green for what I think BtoB wants
Buzz is really pretty and looks gentle and willing - worth a try but WP horses sometimes don't ride so well English and take some time to re-educate
The place with Max (Buckskin) also have a horse called Fabio that rides 'english' and jumps and a lovely buckskin mare called Kitty (I think) - I have 5 mares and don't have any problems with any of them but I realize that some people don't like them

Kitty & Fabio

I see
Hubby keeps pestering me about getting one...he's 6'6".... I have successfully refused so far
I always had hot blooded horses, TB's, Arabs. Had a haflinger cross and a TBxwarmblood. The Hafi I could deal with, he was super smart and not stubborn. The TB cross I sold. Lack of brains. Seriously. 17 hands of pretty, but brainless and stubborn. I just don't have the nerves.

for me, personally, Kitty( if they get her to ride IN the ATV lol).
If I was into jumping, I'd have a go at Fabio.

I do like Max, too

If Fabio is as good on the trails as the rest of their horses, my vote is for him!

I really liked them both - good job I don't live near AZ!!!
I've always had forward going horses and the (fox) hunters mostly pulled like trains which is why I now have such awful shoulder joints
Our Clyde x arab is thick as a brick but rides like an arab - all get up and go!!! Not a great combination at times

I can't find Fabio on their website. Are we sure he hasn't been sold?

Of the ones we know are available, my top three favorites are Max, that big-boned paint I linked to first and Buzz (in that order).

Ask the OWNER to show off the horse by handling, grooming, picking feet, loading/unloading in a trailer, riding in an arena, riding OUTSIDE of an arena, and any special training.
Don't be in ANY hurry to get on yourself!!!!!!!
My friend was horse shopping and got on a gelding that was "cinchy", according to the owner. She threw out her back when she got bucked off, and it took years to recover.
On the other side, when I bought "Tyke" (1970-1998, RIP), he was a 15yo kid's horse who had ponied TB's on the track--found this out later, when all his previous owners came out the woodwork to come by and ride him--he was a perfect gentleman, and he became my DH's favorite horse.
This is where you want your horsey friend to help you keep your EMOTIONS in check. Your friend should be looking at the feet when you are looking at the "pretty" head, watching the tenseness when you see "animation and spirit", or telling you when you are looking at a good guy, too.
Don't worry at ALL if you want to drive home and think about it. Even IF someone else buys the horse that you didn't buy on the spot, there are MANY others available.
You don't want to think that your trip was wasted simply bc you couldn't ascertain the suitability of a horse from pictures, videos and talking to the owner. Just think of any trips as "adventures" or small vacations. You wouldn't buy a car on the spot, so why a horse?
Many of us here on HF have been horse owners for many years. I have owned horses for almost 28 years straight, and I currently keep 3 horses on my 5 acres, and in the back yard. Do NOT think you are a poor horse owner if you decide to board.
If you get really impatient, I might suggest that you contact CHERIE, bc she might have something for sale. I would take a horse from her in a heartbeat. There are others here, too, but I feel a kinship for her, so I'm prejudiced.
