im looking for a horse

my family and i are looking for a horse for me to compete with.

The ideal horse will:

-be between 15.3hh and 16.3hh
-be 12 years or younger (preferably younger)
-be easy to shoe, float, handle, catch and preferably clip
-have a snaffle mouth
-have some showjumping experience OR show great potential
-be able to jump at least 1m, preferably more
-have been at some shows/competitions before and be familiar with the atmosphere
-have no vices
-have no previous injuries that could still affect it (or if the horse matches all the other criteria, the seller should still reply to this but tell us if there has been an injury of that sort)
-be in south east qld
-cost no more than AU$15,000 (inc GST)

If you have or know a horse that matches all or most of the above criteria, please e-mail / reply to this, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.

Would you like fries with that?...I'm joking, your requests are I think, to be expected of a $15 000 horse. I would suggest you widen your scope with location. I think you could find exactly what you want and then some, but limiting yourself to a small location will make things really hard. Trucking companies are great these days, and if you can afford $15 grand for a horse you can afford $500 to have it trucked from the wider QLD area OR NSW.
Maybe you don't want to travel all across the state to find a horse but you just make darn sure it's the one you want before you go visit. Anybody requesting $15 000 would have to expect people wanting to see videos and LOADS of pictures and then vet checks (Which you would do even if the horse you found was down the road from you).
Sorry about the rant, you might have already had this idea. Even tho I'm in NSW I will let you know if something exceptional comes around near here :)
Good luck :)

hahaha. thanks
its not really getting it here, its more going to try it. Im a fairly confident rider, but im not a strong rider, therefore i need a horse with a really soft mouth that doesnt need someone strong to ride it- and yeahh i guess im a bit picky too.
