5 Indgredients To Finding The Perfect Horse Partner

Trot-R-Lead-Arena-3RA few months back, Devin published an article in Flying Changes Magazine about the 5 thing to look for when selecting am equine partner.  She identified the factors that she emphasizes as being the key to finding the best horse and rider combination.  Her article begins with these thoughts:

As a horse professional, I’ve spent the last 10 years buying and selling horses in the Pacific Northwest and California. After years of talking with buyers and seeing for myself what kind of horses sell and for how much, I’ve found that there are five important factors to determining the price of a horse: age, soundness, talent, temperament and training.
While everyone should seek out these five qualities, even if you have an unlimited budget for horses, you may not find a mount with everything. Horses are living creatures, not built in a factory; and while near-perfect horses exist, they often aren’t for sale. For most of us, money is a factor and we have to prioritize the characteristics we are looking for, plus be realistic about the quality of horse we can find for the price we are willing to spend.
