looking for a horse :)

so my parents finally said I could buy a horse I currently lease a pony (but do ride many other horses and ponies) I am 15 years old, and about 5' tall. I compete in hunters in both local and A rated show, so I want a horse that can be competitive (good jump a must, good hacker would be a good bonus :) ) My budget is $25,00. If you guys have any ideas tell me about them. My trainer is going to help me start lookin seriously this summer.

I really like this guy and he's in your backyard....might be a little young for you though. I wish my parents would give me 25k to buy a new horse. Ah well >_<

wow! He IS gorgeous, but I think since he is only stared lightly undersaddle he would be a bit much for (unless my parents are willing to get him trained )

Mm...possibly this mare?

She is not as flashy as the gelding, but if she is as good as they say in the description, she might be a fit. She's not very tall, but I think at your height you'd be a good match. I saw a grey gelding with a nice jump on him, but I didn't know how you'd feel about an 18 hand land monster :P

horse

Hi, I have your perfect horse. He is 15 hh, 900 lbs, and a MADE Hunter! He is a great 3'6" prospect. He is jumping around 2'6" now. Thanks,
Mary

wish my parents would give me $25,000 to buy a horse too =) Hard sell being that I am 32 and all. Good luck to you, just stay true to what you are looking for and don't jump into anything because you just WANT one (I made that mistake with my first horse)
