Hey Guys!
I really like this horse that i found on www.equine.com I am not really familiar with his breed though,he is a Danish Warmblood...So here are some questions....
  • Do warmbloods have a generally laid back personality?
  • What are the charactheristics(sp) of a Danish Warmblood?
  • Are they "easy keepers"?
  • Are they a good first horse?
If you guys replying want to view the ad just ask and i will post it:)

Imported, champion Danish Warmblood. At the VERY least he's going to run anywhere from $25,000 to $50,000.

Don't let the $1 on the ad fool you; it's just to get people to look at him. He's going to be sold at what's called 'private treaty' which means very, very expensive.

Besides, I thought you had a riding instructor. You need to be talking to THEM about what type of horse would best suit you, not mooning over random animals in on-line classifieds.

For someone who's supposedly been riding awhile, you don't seem to know a heck of a lot about horses or how to care for them.

Since that appears to be the case, you need to be looking at dead broke, older packers. Certainly not a high end show horse.

Wannahorse, if this is the type of horse you are looking to purchase, you cannot just stick it in your backyard and learn how to take care of him as you go. That is not a backyard beginner's horse. I strongly advise you actually hire your instructor to help you find a horse if you're insistant on buying one.

I'm not being rude, I'm merely telling you something you don't want to hear.

I also don't 'like' or 'dislike' you. I just think you need a lot more time around horses before any parental unit gives in and buys you one. My concern is for that potential horse, not your feelings.

Oh, and you're not a mod, little girl. If you post it on a public forum everyone, even those you think are big meanie doodie heads, get to post their opinions.

If all you want is praise and agreement, start a blog and make it private.

The description says that horse is green. You don't want that.

If you are riding school horses and there's one you really like, ask about buying it. Most lesson barns will sell any of their horses if the price is right. Or, look at horses for sale at other lesson barns. That will get you the type of horse you need right now.

O my bad! I didnt see the green part! I have been thinking about looking at other local lesson barns. I just need advice about that. Do you think the owner of my barn would be offended if i purchased a horse from the "competition" barn? Because my dad said if we ever went to look at one, she has to go wth us.

deffinitly look for a "been there done that" type of horse. like, an older ex lesson horse.
you dont want to get one thats "too much horse" for you and have it be an aweful experience for both you and the horse.
