I fully agree with this, which is why I didn't recommend a trainer. I just said an experienced horseman, like a friend, as alot of times when a beginner rides a horse the horse will have some little quirk that can be easily fixed by someone with some horse training sense, and that quirk may be all that prevents the horse from being considered kid-safe. This is just one way of looking at it, the horse may be psycho for all I know.
If the horse does have more than minor problems, like rearing or the like, I vote free to good home. For minor issues, like lazy or a bit stubborn and the OP doesn't want to worry about training, I vote for asking a few hundred and be willing to negotiate. Posted via Mobile Device
