Think of it this way.

When looking for a husband/wife, you don't just get on a website with a list of a thousand people looking for a mate- find someone attractive, and go 'oh, he's(or she's) THE ONE' and you go marry them without having even talked to eachother. Or if you did, it wouldn't work out. Why? Because of personality. Way of doing things. Pet peeves. Health. Life style. It all ties together to make you you and make them them. The only way to know if you're 'soul mates' is by talking. Getting to know eachother. Finding out as much as you can about eachother.

It's quite the same with a horse. You and your horse are partners, just like a husband and wife are. You have to have meshing personalities. A bullheaded horse isn't going to go well with a timid rider, and a rough and tough rider won't go well with a skittish, low confidence horse.

And you can't tell personality from a picture on a computer.

You don't.

Search with your head, not your heart. It's so easy to overlook problems when you have it in your head that this horse is your heart horse.

Try out lots and lots of horses, with the mindset that you will not make a decision until you have tried out x number of horses.

You can't as everyone has said. My horse is perfect for me and I would never have bought him based on his ad. I was reluctant to even go see him because the ad just didn't appeal to me much. My boyfriend convinced me to look just to get an idea of what horses in our price range were like. Lucky turned out to be a perfect fit. You just can't know without actually trying the horse. I could've missed out on a real gem basing a decision just on an ad.
