horse buying help

Well....where to begin?

Currently I own a 12.3 hh welsh pony but as I have all evidence of being tall and out growing him probably within the year : ( on the bright side I don't have the heartbreak of selling a favourite as I get to keep him

When I do out grow him I will need a new horse and was wondering what I should look for?

This is about what I want----

Quiet but spirited (not dull but not too highly strung...NOT stallions, O.T.T's etc.)
Good all rounder (jumping, dressage, games etc.)
A suitable height for my tallness
A horse that can take me far
Good smooth movement, easy tranistions etc.
Soft mouth
Overall a great ride, loving, willing horse!
Must be from within australia
At most 5k...i think....

Currently not looking (thankfully coz I love my boy too much) but thinking

Any help?

P.S I am currently about 1.6metres and 13 turning 14....any horse height ideas?

Sorry can't help you out cause I don't know the market in AUS. YOu might keep an eye out at local pony clubs and stables for horses for sale. A nice 15+ hand horse should do you well though

I'd go with something between 14 and 15 hands. Might want closer to 15 so you have at least a few years to ride him/her. (Ponies are so much more fun though. Lol)

This pony sounds perfect.
I know she is in PA, just giving you an example of a cool pony that looks like what you might want. =]

Good Luck!!

I say 15hh+ is a good size. ;)
