Do you think its a good idea that I get OTTB ?
I would say "no". Lots of good points made by @Aprilswissmiss and @05_ag_girl I would be very surprised if a place like New Vocations would place one of their horses with a rider with only 3 months of experience.

Thoroughbreds are the ultimate sport horse. Highly athletic, quick in body and mind, and responsive. They are great horses.

I realize you are really excited about getting a new horse, I think the enthusiasm is great! I think it's great you have a trainer too!

I think the suggestion of leasing is really smart. That gives you the ability to get the feel of horse ownership without the full commitment.

Good luck to you!
