Buying a Saddlebred gelding...?
Im selling/trading my horse and I've been talking with this lady who has a saddlebred horse... Here is the geldings info.
15.3-16. Hands, beefy guy, who can pass as a draft, that's what her farreir thinks. Has He has hard, solid feet
14-15 years old She thinks more 15
Western training, I ride english and she thinks it wouldnt be much for him to learn english because she direct reins him...
He is chestnut with white streaks in his tail and mane, I will be getting pics later tonight. I'll post them here. He seems like a solid broke horse because she lets her friends who don't know how to ride ride him.
I've never seen a saddlebred and don't know much about them but all I have heard is horror stories about the ones in saddle seat. And how they are all screwed up and can't touch the sides and have neck and back problems. But those are stories... Are they very hot? Do they tend to spook easily? Stubborn or anything like that? Have you enjoyed one? Or had problems?
I did do some research and found out they were used in civil war! That's kinda cool, they excel in jumping,dressage,cross country. But is he to old to learn how to jump? What about dressage could I train him for that and go to shows next season?
From east to west a travlin gypsy found her prancing pony for now their hearts run as one...into the north
