So, I've got a small budget and I know that I will probably either be able to afford a 4h level horse, or a project. I'd like to find something that is well broke, but a bit of a project. I stumbled on this ad the other day, and it seems that if she has potential I may be willing to look into her. Can you all look her over and tell me if you think that this mare has a competitive future in western riding?
What I'm really looking for is a horse that can go western pleasure or working western, which is described by our show club as like wp, but more relaxed headset and speed. So it can be faster or not a stereotypical wp horse. In fact, I think that I may just stick to working classes and skip wp. As I find that it's a bit too slow for my need for (relative) speed. Bonus with this girl is that she could hopefully take me into the hunt seat classes right away. I know I'm not going to AQHA shows anytime soon, so her breed (TB) shouldn't matter. The horse herself would have to have a say as well, some horses just don't like one discipline or another for whatever reason.
Tell me what you think. Be honest, but not brutal, ok? Do you think she could be turned into a western horse? It's just a thought, that maybe I shouldn't be focusing on horses that are just listed as western, perhaps I should be willing to look into the enlish ones as well... I'm just asking could it be done, please doesn't all jump out of the woods and bash me or something- I'm curious here...
