How to Choose Between Two Horses?
I could really use some help.
Upon beginning a search for the perfect event partner, I began thinking about this one mare I haven't seen since last summer. I know she's available for a free full lease for all of the 2016-17 school year, then I would give her back in early June.
I thought it would be a great idea, but then I met another yesterday while trying some horses I had already made an appt. to look at.
The other horse is around 16.3, he's a 9yo OTTB gelding, very big-boned and handsome. He's gone novice (I haven't gone BN yet so scope isn't an issue) and I liked him a lot. The only thing is that I felt as though he was very hard to control over jumps.
The mare is a sweet little 14.3 QH/Paint x, love of my life, 15 years old, she's very green and has never been evented or taught any dressage. She has amazing manners and loves people.
What do you think? Should I take the leap on the mare? Or should I continue by going to look at the gelding again?
Thanks in advance!
