After selling my gelding who I loved, but just was too much for me I have started looking at potential new horses. :-) Very exciting indeed.
I am limited to price but have managed to find two that both look and sound perfect. They meet everything I was hoping for (height/age etc) and look lovely.
I went to see one of them today and she has a lovely calm temprement and a fantastic energetic jump, but she is a bit slow to get going when doing general schooling and naps slightly (not alot) near the gate when you stand her there (but does not nap to it whilst riding).
Do you think this would be a major problem?
I really like here in every other aspect and she fits the bill of what I was wanting...but because Im used to a very forward going, fizzy TB (the reason I sold) I'm not used to having to kick to get a horse working. Albeit once a jump is up kicking is no longer required.
I have the other to view as well so don't need to make a final decision today, but I was just wanted some opinions.
I am only looking for a happy hacker and occasional local shows/pleasure rides - nothing too exciting or competitive.
