Help Me Shop/What to Look for in First Horse
So, I have boarding set up (I'm sticking with the barn I'm at now), now I can start horse shopping OFFICIALLY. As most of you have seen, I have a nice little mare that I have my eye on, and I am scheduled to go look at her on Sunday.
I have stated that I was going to let my HF family help me shop for my first horse. Here are my requirements:
--Beginner safe!! (I am a timid rider)
--Larger, as I am a larger rider
--10yrs or older, but not elderly
--Must be acclimated to being boarded outside
--Located within the state of Minnesota
--Owners willing to deliver for additional fee
--Pics would be helpful
Breed, color or gender are not important to me, as the most important is temperament. I am looking for a great beginner's horse.
I am going up to look at my first mare on Sunday, and I am a little unsure of what to look for in buying my first horse. I am on my own for this first visit, but my instructor said that if I was still interested in the mare after my first visit, that she would come up with me my next visit and make sure I wasn't buying a demonic pony.
So, What should I look for?
Luv you guys.
try dreamhorse.com thats where i found my horse
here are some horses i found on there that i think might be a good fit . . .
I should have set a price limit, I'm not looking to spend a HEAP, as the market is low right now, so I've heard. I'd go as high as 3500 and thats as if the horse really dazzles me.
hmmmm... here's an 11 year old but it seems too good to be true...
This one looks like a nice one... she's 14. I like her better then the one above. She's been bred before though... she's cute though... love her name.
I'm gonna keep looking too... I like number 2 better than number 1 here....
I like the second one too. I'll be in Kellogg this weekend actually, I'll contact the owner and see if I can go out and have a look at her.
15 hands... looks pretty stocky
This one sounds like she might be speedy, you'd have to ask but man is she cute!
and of course i add the walking horse... I love walkers...
Wow... I'm not even a mare person and I think that's pretty much all I'm giving you!
You know, I've often wondered about that, do all white horses need sunscreen? Fritz has a white/pink nose, and I'm not sure if they put sunscreen on him or not.
ETA: I have an email out to the owners of the second.
only the pink skinned ones....
