No no no! it's not for me! :lol:

A VERY good friend of mine has now started her hunt for THE perfect horse. I only know of so many online advertizement areas so ALL ideas welcome :D

Here is the info:
Gender: Mare or Gelding

Age: any (tho 10-15 might be best as they have more miles)

Breed: any breed or color. Ideally something bigger (aka draft cross, draft, big QHs etc etc), more

Height:Not picky either

Experience: VERY, the horse in essence has to be as reliable and quiet. This is for a first time horse owner so it needs to be a seasoned horse.

All search results welcome!

Hmmm. I am thinking about Diesel to the right owner. He's in Montana though. 10 year old AQHA registered gelding. 15hh. quiet. reliable and safe. Has some trouble with side passing/lateral movements but we're working on that. He's barefoot and UTD on everything.
He goes western and english. We ride him in a greg darnell snaffle. Easy keeper. good on trails. a few years ago we did some long distance riding.
If you think she may be interested, let me know.

What about "Clark Kent"?
Saddlebred Rescue Angel Network - Clark Kent super horse from 12/08

There are videos of him working, as well as testimonials by the people who have met and ridden him.

Quotes from link above about Clark:

"This gelding is a GRAND horse, he has a wonderful work ethic, he still loves people and is safe safe safe. Someone is missing a great opportunity for a GREAT kids horse or just a great first horse."

"i am 10 years old and a student at North Wind Stables. i was lucky to ride Clark Kent today and he is very responsive and comfortable. when you trot on him and tell him to slow down he will respond. he will be a great lesson horse and i wish i could adopt him. he is very friendly. i love him and everybody should if they really are horse crazy!!!!"

"I love teaching with this horse! He is always a gentleman and is so careful with the little ones. I love the way he looks over at me when he is giving a lesson. He doesn't come off the rail just looks at me as if to say "am I doing this right?" He is just too cute."

If you have any questions, ask them on the forums, or ask me and I'll post them on the forums for you. They are quick to respond. :)

Yes, yes.... Minnesota horses would be best, and if at all possible, around the 1000 mark. The longer it takes me to shop, the more I can save up, but right now that is my price range.

Kelly, thanks for starting the thread..... Haha.. I was too lazy to do it myself. oye.

Thanks for all of the replies so far!
