Hello Quiet Girl--

In answer to your questions:

1) The best breed of horse is one that is suited to your needs. IOW - what do you plan to do with him?

2) The best age? Older. Experienced. Well-trained. This is probably at least 10.

3) Price is usually commesurate with training and breed.

In your area, full board probably starts at $500 per month and goes up from there.

Something to think about though - you are still in school full time. You will undoutedly want to be involved with school things - dances, sports, clubs. You also need a job to help pay for horse things. You plan to ride 3 to 4 times a week....

Have you thought about how you will fit all of this into your schedule?

Maybe you should look into a full or partial lease at the stable you have in mind rather than buying at this point? A lease will help you and your family see just how much of a commitment (both time and money-wise) a horse will be.

(Just my .02 - Best of luck!)
