So you want to get into horse riding, but don’t have your own horse? Knowing where to start can be tough.
When looking at potential horses, getting a second opinion is extremely important, even if you are a knowledgeable horse person yourself. This is especially true if you are buying your first horse. A knowledgeable trainer can objectively look at a horse and pull out the fine details that you might not notice which will influence your decision in purchasing the horse.
Too many first-time horse owners select a horse that isn’t right for them. Eventually, they get frustrated and give up on horses altogether, forever missing out on the joy of horse ownership.
Buying a horse is a lot like buying a used car. Both take a lot of research, plus some experience and smart buying strategies, to make a purchase you’ll be happy with.
