So first of all I just want to say hello to everyone since I'm new to this forum. My question is I went out and tried out a quarter horse mare that had been out to pasture for about 6 months. So I'm turn she was a little rusty in her riding. She seemed a bit sassy at first but settled down my only concern was her stop. It was a bit of a hit and miss kind of thing. The seller said she was a great trail horse when they rode her frequently. But for now they suggested time and a somewhat stronger bit until she gets back into the swing of things. She would be my first horse that I've owned and I see her potential but I would like some outsiders opinions.
