    Don't the CTR groups have a minimum age for the horses they allow to compete?

    LD's 4 endurance (AERC) is 5, can't speak of CTR groups.

    Alright. I'll listen to you guys. I'll keep looking. Speed Racer, you're right. I'm just like "whoa this horse looks awesome. I'm totally going to buy her." I think instead I'll keep looking and somewhere along my path I'll find the right horse.
    Thank you!

    I think what we're also confused about is why you like this horse. Her conformation seems to be not only poor, but would probably be a hindrance for what you want to do. Her current owner also says that she wouldn't be suitable for what you want to do. Yet you still think she's a good choice.

    What is it about that horse that makes her appealing to you?

    I dunno really. I just keep looking for horses and yeah. But now what you guys are saying, I'm starting to listen to you guys. Like I see what you're saying about her confo, so now I don't want her.
    And green + green = black and blue too. I just realized that now.

    That is the basic formula for anything horsey :)
    Look at the places you would want to ride at. I assume youd want to be competitive? Look at the clubs, see if they have rules regarding the horses. If a club has a rule that a horse has to be a minimum age that will be a factor to consider. They might have publically posted info about their riders - look at the breeds and ages and whatever else. Look at how the horses are built. It helps to compare.

    Yeah, seriously. X)
    Thanks for the advice. I'm riding at a show barn now, but I don't show. I'd get too nervous. I've been going there for three long years. My mum and I have thought of going somewhere else but we're not totally sure yet.

    Most competitive trail is done in an arena and your time lasts maybe 15 min. She needs to be willing to tackle unfamiliar obstacles ie trust and listen to you. The outdoor ones just offer different challenges.
