LTF- I'm actually quite surprised they're suggesting it. XD Apparently he's great for competing. I get along with most horses pretty well, so he should be okay, though I haven't met/seen him yet XD I'll have details next Saturday- that's when we agreed to discuss it, since he isn't for sale yet and they want to keep it quiet.
And I like the big, long-legged horses because of their longer strides... I find them less choppy (though I suppose it does depend on the horse's gait.)
Fawnleaf- Takes practice! Lots and lots of practice... though Learn To Fly is better than me. XD She deserves a horse, after riding 6 1/2 years!! I haven't really done any competitions yet (one or two, but they were just held in the barn for beginners).
In the hobby for 9 years.
