We are looking for any breed, prefer over the age of 10, I would like the age to be more 15 or older. Was wanting gelding. We bought a 12 year old mare, she's is 14 1/2 hh. She's is a doll perfect for us! We are needing another horse still for my other daughter. This mare we bought is due to foal anytime and we are keeping the baby.

Ugh, love my grammar in my last post. :/

If I hear of any a good kids horse in that area, I'll pass the info along! :)

So bizarre PaintGirl, I was reading this thread and saw your post, and I was agreeing, buying a horse that's pretty turning out to be a bad thing. And then you said "Clue" was the horse you got, but a gelding. I bought "Clue" (yup, that was her name too!), the MOST gorgeous QH mare I ever laid eyes on, I was IN LOVE with her! Turned out she thought she was in a rodeo about 90% of the time I tried to ride her, I had about 15 x-rays from her throwing me into the round pen panels. She rode perfect with a man, and most always tried to dump a woman rider. My guess is her previous owners doped her the two times I came to "try her out", she acted "bomb-proof" at their barn. I finally found her a good match, and sold her (a lot less than I paid btw).
This was about 14 years ago, memories of her kept me from riding for almost that long. Pretty is not a good reason to buy anything, but especially a horse. Keep looking OP, you will be happy that you did b/c you will find the right match eventually. Not to be cliché, but good things DO come to those who wait

We butted heads all the time, yet I still loved her. I just knew that Clue had to be mine when I first saw him. He met me at the gate when the horse I previously went to look at didn't even raise her head from grazing. He nudged & loved all over me. & he's became my best friend & I wouldn't dream of ever selling him. It might take a while, but taking your time really pays off in the end! Good luck to you :)
