Horse Shopping!
 
So I'm looking at prospects to buy once I get settled in in Christchurch.

I'm looking for a horse that is schooled enough to put up with my novice-status but also not push button. I want to learn to be more effective. My price range probably tops out at around 4k.
Here's some I like. Tell me if you see anything horrible about them

I like the second one, but adds change so quickly, you are better off looking when you are ready.

When do you go to Christchurch?

New Zealand is lovely, I lived in Dunedin for about 6 months. I think the people are the friendliest in the world. If I wasn't Australian, I'd want to be a New Zealander.

I'd be a little wary about the Meg since the owner seems so desperate to sell her. Of course she won't highlight any of her flaws.

I love Ryan! Wish he was in the US for that price!

I can't see the last ad. I think the first is better than the second.

The first is my favorite.

I'd prefer to buy in a few months (and yep, I know chances are they'll be gone) but if the right horse comes up I'd probably be willing to buy them sooner. also, i've noticed a few of the horses up here have been there for awhile so I figured it wouldnt hurt to look and see what is selling for what as well as figure out what exactly I'm looking for.

I like the first one. Look at those tight knees!! The second horse is nice but not nearly as neat in the legs when jumping. Not enough pics of the third to say.
