This is Caviar and called "Cavy" for short. She has a sweet nature and is about 12'3"... maybe bigger. She hasn't been ridden for two years, but used to show, I believe. My girls have sat on her bareback and are having fun brushing her and doing some groundwork with her. We plan on taking a few lessons with James Cooler of "Cooler Horsemanship". (Click if you love horses! - you won't be disappointed)
We will decide in a few weeks if all goes well - and I really have a wonderful feeling that everything will. We will board her here at the farm she is currently at as it is close by our home and it has trails, beautiful pastures and is under wonderful management. Obviously, we will have a veterinarian visit her as well.
How do you decide to purchase a horse? Do you ask for a trial period or do you buy on the spot?
