I had to read that twice myself :) I hope the paint works out for you!

I actually find myself liking the paint more than the TB...

I love the paint ! He's adorable, and he could probably be a fun project:)

Thanks for the clarification! Whichever you pick I wish you the best time! New horses are so much fun.

Thumbs up

My husband and I are going to ride him again this weekend and probably take him on trial.

seeing as your an advanced beginner, i would go with the tb, just because a green rider should never buy a green horse (and by green i mean green to the jumping world)

To be honest Im not a big fan of either one. I think you you should try out a few more. If you're looking for a horse that will take care of you both, you need to find a horse who is seasoned enough to be ok with anything you ask of it. Im not sure that either horses are quite there yet.

I'm mainly doing flat work at the moment and the paint is great with that. My trainer has suggested him as opposed to the TB. Which took us 30+ minutes to catch... She was sweet and eager to work, but the more I ride TBs the more I wonder if they are just not the right breed for me.
