Would you buy: A older horse
I'm intrigued to know what others view are, I've heard that when looking to but a horse people tend to go for horses younger than 14 years old. I currently loan a horse at a local riding school who is around 21 years old, but the way he acts sometimes you would think he was a lot younger! Yet I love him to pieces! I've only had him for about 6 months and it pains me to think in a few years I'll have to give him up to go off to uni. Knowing that when I finish I want to look into buying my own (when I've got a decent job) or getting him back on loan- but anything could happen between now and then.
Anyway, it came up in conversation: if we got offered to buy the horses we loaned would we buy them.? I said I would if he came up for the right price, as I love him that much, but I would have to wait till after uni and I had found a proper job.
The only thing being if that was the case is his age and this is what would stop me from putting in any offer. Is there a limit to age for when buying a new horse? Would you buy a horse any older than 14?
