Help...Which Horse Should I Get?
(Cincinnati, Ohio, USA)
Well, I am a medium skilled rider (riding for less than a year, but I went to a horse camp during last summer--June 2010-- and we learned YEARS of riding) and my parents are looking into buying a horse. If you need to know, I am 11 years old. My options are:
Name (so you don't get mixed up): Snow Angel A.K.A Snowy
Height: around 14 hands
Breed: Welsh Pony/Connemara crossbreed
Reference: Good with dogs (we have dogs), cats (we have cats), good beginner horse, would be good for younger kids (my sister's favorite LOL)
Can jump up to 2ft.
Name: Ransom Wish A.K.A Racer
Height: around 17 hands
Breed: Thoroughbred/Hanoverian cross
Reference: a bit high strung, would be good for advanced/medium skilled rider, isn't very good with younger kids or other animals (my dad's favorite)
Age: um...I believe around 10-11+
Can jump up to 3ft (not really a jumper)
Name: Lady Of War A.K.A Lady/Beauty
Height: around 16 hands (or 15.2 or 15.3, can't remember)
Breed: Quarter Horse/Thoroughbred crossbreed
Reference: Good with all animals, would be good for a medium skilled rider up to advanced rider, good with kids but not for a beginner, doesn't mind loud noises (MY FAVORITE!)
Can jump up to 5ft.
As I said, I am a medium skilled rider, age 11, not very tall (not short either), no braces or glasses (if needed to know), and I can jump up to 5ft. Please help!
