Heey everyone. Had my lesson today, but the mare that's for sale, and I'm meant to ride in my lessons had cut her leg up pretty bad. We had to get the vet out to cut this hunk of skin cause it was just hanging there. So instead I rode a 5yo breaker. He's being broken in quite late because he was abused by his previous owner. He was the most stubborn horse ever. I was kicking and squeezing and in the end, I resorted to spurs. My lesson was good. Also rode Boz, a lovely trained paint horse gelding, but he was in a stubborn mood too and just wanted to lope.
The Good News is that my instructor told me of a horse that's for sale. He is a 22yo buckskin gelding. He does...
-Hunter Under Saddle
-Hunter in Hand
-And is quite at home rounding up cows.
He really does do all I want him to do. He sounds perfect. My instructor assured me the lady takes great care of him and that he's in excellent condition. My instructor is bringing him out to her stables for a week, so I can ride him, so she can ride him and so we can all see how he goes. But how old is too old? I don't wanna buy him, and then for him to get colic, or arthritis and have to put him down.
