Final Choice of buying a horse...
I've looked at many horses after my parents told me I could buy my first horse, I've found a couple I really like and I need a few opinions before I make my final choice.
A little about me: I'm going on being 12 and I'm 4'10 (I'm pretty short for my age) I've been riding since I was 8 (4 years) I'm looking for a horse that can take me from hunters, to eventer's.
I'm currently taking twice a week lessons and schooling 3'0 jumps. I've been to quite a few shows, and I wouldn't mind a challenge. But I also wouldn't mind something a bit older and wiser. So I'm caught in the middle. I don't expect to grow much more then 5'4- 5'6.
Horse #1: Lucy.
Special Hunter pony, 14.1 hands 7 year old welsh x Qh Jumping 2'6 2'9 courses but has schooled 3'3. not spooky. Has won many reserve and champions. (Mare)
Horse #2: Prince
15.2 hands 6 year old TB x QH, been to a few local shows but not enough miles on him, would be perfect for someone wanting to compete in jumpers. Needs a confident rider, but has no vices. A little bit spooky. Jumping 3'0 courses but has schooled over a 4'0 but can go higher.
Horse #3: Joey
10 year old tovero paint gelding, Joey is a 15 hh horse that hacks around beginners and can jump up to 3'9 and jumps 3'3 courses. He's trust-worthy, saintly, and safe with a puppy dog personality, has been to many shows, he loves to jump bit less (not in dressage)and is young at heart. He drives, been in pony club and also competes in out of town shows.
Horse # 4: Diva
This little mare really lives up to hr name, she is a 14.2 hh Morgan X Paint mare, bay with a star, she is 4 years old and has a lot of spunk. She is not a beginners horse because she is still young and can become very hot and high strung. Requires confident rider. Can jump 3'0 + and has no show miles, but I am looking for someone that would want to show her, as she would make an excellent eventer.
Horse # 5: Moxi.
Moxi is trust-worth, sound, safe and beginner safe to. He's 16.hh and has jumped 5'0 in his younger years but can still school 4'0. Moxi is 13 years young, but acts like he's 20 around little kids. He can be used for any discipline expect western, but if you train him he would make a good trail horse or barrels. But I would like to see him go to a jumping home
Any suggestions? They all sound so great :3
