Buying Your First Horse – a Practical Guide
By Trish Haill
Spring is here, and the warmer weather is on the way. As the grass starts to grow, the sun appears and nothing seems so attractive as meandering down those country lanes or cantering up the bridle paths on your own horse.
If you have only ever ridden at a riding school before, buying your first horse will be a real experience for you â€“ and one you shouldnâ€™t go without doing some careful thinking and planning first. A horse should be your trusted companion for some time â€“ you owe it to him to make sure you pick the right one for you. There is nothing worse for a horse than to be sold on time and time again because he was bought by the wrong person.
