I'm not ready yet to own a horse because I have to get fencing and a shelter up. I'll be taking some natural horsemanship classes. I think it's a good idea to take some classes to make sure my basic knowledge is sound. I've been watching some Perelli (sp?) work with horses on youtube and I love the connection btw the horses and the riders I see. There is a place about an hour and half from me that teaches on those principles.
I'm thinking Quarter horse five years old about 15hh. I have a four and a five year old who would like to ride to. So the disposition is more important then breed to me.
I'm so excited though I can't wait. We will be doing the fencing this summer, still though I just feel like I should wait till next spring and do some riding between now and then so I'm not so green when I get him/her.
Thanks for the welcomes.
