    Also, although you can learn the basics of nutrition, you cannot just learn "diet" in theory. Diet has to be set individually for each equine and it may need to be changed over time, and for that you need lots of experience. Good luck in your studies and don't rush! Your right horse will come in his own way and time. ;)

    Ugh I'm so weird! I'm not sure, but when I take more horse/riding lessons, if I find an older mare that I really like and she's good for me, for sale at the stables for less than $1500, I think I'll go for it! I'm just not sure about buying online, you can't completely be sure about everything that they tell you, but when you actually have ridden the horse, you know what's true and then if I ride and volunteer there, I'll most likely know if they drug the horses...

    Never buy sight unseen! Too many risks

    Exactly what I thought :) I found ads on the Internet, but I'm planning on going to a trusted stables that I used to go to and see if they have a mare lesson pony for sale, then I will ask to have lessons with her as I would be a potential buyer, then if she fit me well, she would be mine! :3 they also do 'package' things where they go with you to other stables and such, and help you pick out a horse, they arrange vetting for you, and deliver it to its home! Except if its not boarding with them they charge you an extra 0.75 per kilometre :P and the whole package (PRE purchase vetting and all) is a few hundred dollars, and for an extra hundred, they help you pick out, and fit tack! *mind blown*

    I would suggest going to your local library and checking out several books on horse care. While it is not a substitute for real life experience, they can help cover a large number of areas of care that you should learn about.
