What made you interested in your current horse that lead you to buying them in the first place?
After B was born I knew that I was going to need to get a new horse, Tucker my current horse wasn't going to live up to what I wanted to do jump wise and I wanted to show again and be able to jump higher.
I ended up finding him a great trail/pleasure home and then leased a horse in the barn for 2 months while I searched for something young and with potential.
My trainer said no to what felt like a MILLION horses... but that was ok b/c I told her to be picky.
Her approval was what made me buy him... he was not the perfect horse but he had potential, he was more then I "wanted" to spend (but very very green so obvi not a million dollars) and I thought he was pretty easy on the eyes.
Into this hansom dude...
