Arrow I need help! *First Horse:)*

I am so excited! I will be getting my first horse in the next year (most likely) But I still can't find one good for me:/ Can you guys help me out?? I am a intermediate-advanced rider. I am currently riding a green horse right now at the lesson barn I go to. I have been taking lessons over 3 yrs. I mean not to brag,but I am good. We are moving onto a 10-acre property. The house we are building there is almost done So, in case you wanted to know, thats where the horse would be kept.So there is some background info. if you wanted it. Here aare the search guidelines.

I would prefer a mare, but if you find a really godd gelding yyou can post it.

I like big horses, so somewhere between 15.3-17.3 hands tall

Age between 6-18 yrs. old

Temperment not more than a 6

Price range between $0-$9,000 (at the absolute MOST)

Hunter/jumper (can still be in training for it, or if you think it's good it could just be a prospect for it...your choice)

Thank you SO much!!

Horses aren't just a pleasure, they are an escape from all evils of mankind.

How often are you taking lessons? I'll keep an eye out for you. I have been riding for 8 years (from age 5-13, which I am now) and according to your scale, since you've only been riding for 3 years, I am an advanced rider. I've been riding a green horse my whole life (rode a 3-year-old until he was 8, then sold him because I outgrew him) and I am also looking for a horse now, about the same height, but looking for a young horse (only up to age 9). I also ride hunter/jumpers. About the same price range too. So, I'll be able to send you several! :)

Oh and what state are you in? Or at least basic area? I promise I'm no stalker, I'm just a 13-year-old rider. I live in GA. You can even pm me it if you want...I at least need to know like if you live in NE US or whatever. :)

Although you may have been taking lessons for 3 years, it depends on how many times per week, 1 a week would still put you at advanced beginner or intermediate, also you would want to be careful of what breed you get, Arabs and Thoroughbred are the highest strung so you would probably want something like a quater horse or warmblood.

I've been riding since literally birth and still don't consider myself an advanced rider after 13 years of hot, spooky, trained, untrained, problem horses and I still don't consider myself an advanced rider.

I ride once a week, am probably going to start doing2x a week though. I also do advanced rider summer camps. The lady that owns my barn/head trainer works with us for about 5 hours for a week. I am having problems finding quarter horses that are 16 hands and above though....

what is the worst behaviour problem that you have ever faced???? depending on what you have dealt with that would be a good way of determining what you are able to handle.

I don't know what you would consider bad, but bolting,bucking,refusing jumps,afraid to walk into places (like they are backing up and acting scared..ya know), I will probably experience much more in a summer camp I am going to though:)

That's cool that you go to horse camp. I've always wanted to go to one to meet new people but I can't find a good affordable one near my area.
