Owning a horse is an exciting milestone for every equestrian to leap from renting, and it shows how immersed and dedicated you are to the horse world. Owning a riding partner is an investment that will pay off in the long run.
The perfect riding partner does exist, but there are many factors to consider when it comes to making your final choice. The choices can get overwhelming, but at the end of the day, the most important factor in determining the equine you choose is the purpose behind having your four-legged pal. Are you dreaming of being the best dressage rider? Are you in love with going on trails, or galloping through the fields? Do you get a thrill from jumping?
Much like riders, horses are built and sometimes trained to excel in certain disciplines. Some horses are better suited for trails, while others are born to race. The choice of an equine partner lies in what you love about riding the most.
