Choosing a Young or Older Horse

Choosing a young or older horse is much more than simply a question of age. It is not uncommon for inexperienced or prospective horse owners to think it is better to get a young horse, since it has likely not become set in any bad habits and will have a long life ahead. While these are some benefits, there are also many benefits to choosing an older horse.

When choosing a young or older horse, consider who will be riding him. The experience level of the rider or riders should play a large part in the decision making process. If the horse will have multiple riders, give the most consideration to the rider with the lowest level of skills. An experienced rider can handle an easy horse, but an inexperienced rider should never be placed on “more horse” than he can handle.
