What do you perfer, an older (10+) horse that has had good training and "knows it all" or a young inexperienced horse, that you have to pay attention to all the time? (Do you like a challenge or a more laid back aproach)
Depends upon the student I am buying it for. If they are experienced and have a willing and even keel attitude then yes I would buy a greenie for that student. If they are a newbie or green rider then I would go with the experienced teacher.
well that all depends for me, like if i am wanting to just sit back and ride horses for dun or train horses as for my passion and i prefer to not have more than 3 horses at a time so i can spend good time and give love to all of my horses so i just right now have a 16 yr old mare who knows alot but needs work :)
Depends on what kind of riding I'm looking on every certain day.
I have a older horse (16) that is crazy and I have to pay attention EVERY second I'm on him.
And then I have a 8 year old that I started last year and I can ride him bareback and bridle-less. I can have my relaxed rides on him :P So it's opposite of what you said lol!
My rides vary from 2 yr old tb on the track to 28yr old lesson horses. I ride at 3 barns and could go from a green 3 yr old race horse to a push button 20yr old lesson horse to a green 9 yr old who has just started under saddle. It just depends on the day and time
