Has some good points all but the "click" you should feel.

You will not have to have that to have a great horse. And you may not feel it for several months either, even if you do find it.

If you can find a horse that suits your skill level, behaves, and is easy to get along with, or shows well? That is more important than click should be.

And way too many people fall into the click idea, and end up with a horse that is not suitable for them.
Corporal and bsms like this.

Like I've said: Horses and people are emotional.
It's either a romance novel
Or
A horror story.
I haven't "clicked" with more than one horse that I've owned. I bought what I thought was the best horse at the time. AND, I've bought the wrong horse some of the time.
I agree to take someone who isn't emotionally invested in your purchase and really listen to their advice.
