Looking to buy a quarter horse

Hi, I'm new here and I am looking for sorrel or bay AQHA mare in the Dallas Texas area. My Father-in-law wants to buy it as a late Christmas present for my husband and me. It can be broke or greenbroke since I've broke horses all my life. Age from 2 to 6 years is preferred. Most important is that I need one that is 14 to 14.2 hands. We have one that is 15.2 hands, but I have to ride her with a saddle because I'm just a bit too short to jump on her bareback. I really hate riding with a saddle. My husband is a newbie so he prefers riding with a saddle, so he's got it made. She'll be spoiled rotten--we have a great 12 acre place just out of Ennis with lots of coastal burmuda and winter grass, 2 barns and a pond.

Hope someone can help me.

We are in Georgia but could haul if we can find something that works for you. Any particular color? age ? Mare or gelding? price range?

Hi Skippy,

Thanks for moving that for me. I'm a bit limited on how much pc time I have right now--no cable or DSL where I moved (I'm at work). But it's worth it cause I have 2 beautiful horses--so far. But I still am looking for 2 more. I always wanted a horse "herd" but Dad had so many cows he'd only let me have one at a time.

Anyway, back to work. And thanks again.

Howdy Horsebiz,

Thanks for the reply but, yeah, looks like we are a bit far from each other. I'm having a time just finding horses on the south side of Dallas! I live an hour and half south of there and hauling a horse through downtown Dallas is a nightmare.
