beginner rider help!

I have just started riding lessons about 3 1/2 months ago and currently am in the market for a free lease that is beginner friendly. My step mom got me a free lease who tried to buck me off, so now I am on my own. I have searched equinehits and dreamhorse but can't find anything. I want it to be in Lackawanna county or Wayne county PA, that is as far as my parents will allow me to search because of gas prices. My riding instructor says that the best sized horse for me should be around 14-15hh. I am 5'5" and ride english and western, western more frequently. Can anyone help me?

Yes - a free lease is pretty rare...

Especially if you are looking for a "beginner safe " horse.

You are more likely to find a free lease in situations where the owner is hoping the horse gets some good training with a more experienced rider.

Best of luck!

Leasing a spoiled rotten trail horse...pretty - but a brat!

I agree that the chances of you finding a free lease horse to fit your needs will be virtually impossible. What you might consider is sticking with riding lesson horses for now until you have the experience to handle a horse that is broke but maybe not beginner suited, plus you would have the extra time to save up money to either lease a good horse or find one to buy.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
