Buying that 'special' horse

Okay, so you've thought and thought again about 'that' horse... but are you really sure he/shes right for you??? This page is dedicated to helping you figure that out.

There are many places to look to find the right horse for you. Here are some ideas to get your 'creative juices' flowing: friends, local horse shows, barns/stables, internet, auctions (Be VERY, VERY careful with auctions) and humane socities. But where ever you decide to look, just remember to ask questions and if the horse you're looking at isn't right for you, don't be afraid to say No!

MYTH: "If you buy a young untrained horse for a young uneducated rider, they will 'grow' together" This is untrue in most cases... it will only lead to disappointment. The uneducated rider will get frustrated because the horse is not doing what the rider is asking, and the horse will get frustrated because he/she does not know what is being asked.
