To the point....I am looking for a good beginners horse for myself and my 10 yr old daughter to add to our family. We have been looking for one for about 6 months, but have come up empty for "The one". We have both been in the saddle many times, but have no business calling ourselves advanced beginners as there is MUCH we do not know. We are looking for a "Bombproof" and that is used knowing there really is no "Bombproof" but you know what I mean by using it. Gender is not that important, calm, quiet, and easy keeper. Not elderly so around 10 ish yrs old. Something that will be patient, kid safe, and teach us. Primarily, we would like a pet, that we can love and learn with, and improve our riding skills. Not looking for a dressage or hunter/jumper, although as my little one gets better, that may be something she would become interested in. Sound, safe, and not more than 15 hands. Anyone?
