I feel like I'm being offered too many horses. I'm a very indecisive person and almost each new horse makes me think things over. I think I have been offered at least.. 17 horses in two days?! Maybe I should just stop and stick with what I've found so far...
I have really grown to like the first mare, maybe it's because you guys like her as well or because she reminds me of my first favorite-lesson horse.. I don't know. It would be so simple to buy her, as I could already start riding and doing things I love with her. She is 6, ideally I'd like her to be younger.. I am concerned about her jumping abilities - not that I would be a big showjumper, but I would like her to be able to clear a medium fence without much problems. I like that she's energetic, yet calm enough that I can trust her.
If I were to take a young horse, who is still green, it would take time until I can start riding. But the progress can be fun, teaching groundwork etc.. I also like the foal I'm going to go see. Just because she has chrome
and I remember when she was born, I was in awe of her and wished she could be mine (be careful what you wish for!). And she has a rather good pedigree.
Probably not taking the chestnut gelding though. Won't say 100% certainly yet.. The owner said he is a very calm horse. I fear he might be too 'calm'. I like my horses in the 'let's go!' mode..
I'm just thinking out loud
I will probably re-read this thread many times and think about what I've written and what you guys have advised.
