So I tried out a horse today, she is a 7 year old Clydesdale mare.
-She's sweet as heck
-She's well built, and her back is not nearly as long as it looked in some photos, she's pretty well put together
-She can walk/trot/canter under saddle
-She has extensive trail miles from her previous owner
-She tries very hard to figure out is what being asked of her
-I Never felt nervous around her or on her, even though she's HUGE
-She's great for the farrier
-She is a good loader
-She is ridden VERY sporadically, like once a month, by people who don't really know what they are doing, and she was still very well behaved.
-She's a green bean, greener then I had originally planned on getting, greener then I was expecting.
-Her owner is greener then grass
-She has picked up some bad habits
-She doesn't like getting baths
Now I don't mind a horse that's a little green, people seem to think that it was ambers greenness that made me scared of her, but it wasn't that AT ALL, I love training babies, there was way more to my issues with Amber then her being a little green. I want a horse that I feel comfortable on, plain and simple. My trainer is going to go see her and ride her later in the week. So I will update more then!
