Ooh this one is fun. But how can I choose one?!
Ok, so I started to write this post almost two weeks ago. However, it is waaaay harder than I thought it would be!!
For me, I have never had to shop for a horse. And I don't reeeally think I would ever have to. When I am going to get a horse in the future, I think I will go to a rescue or try to find a horse who needs a home. In this economy, I would want to give a home to a horse that would otherwise be put down!
I know that is not always a viable option, but that would be where I might first look for a horse.
The biggest thing I want in a horse is personality, and willingness. I want a horse that will help me jump when I feel like jumping, trail ride when I feel like that, carry me around bareback, and do anything for me. I don't expect perfection in any area, I just want a horse that will do anything I feel like doing! (Which is why pony is perfect for me!)
I definitely don't think I could ever go to riding a super laid back pokey horse after riding so many sensitive horses, so I would look for one that is sensitive.
However, for the sake of this post, here is a post on my local craigslist of a BEAUTIFUL coloring. I think that I would love to get a unbroke horse in the future and break it myself. But this is in the future of course.
I think my first stop would definitely be a mustang adoption or rescue. Mustangs are just so much fun!
