Yesterday, as I mentioned in one of my previous posts, I went to my parents' friends' acreage. They have two horses, both friendly. I now love horses. XD They are so gentle and have a ton of personality. (I am allergic to them, but as long as I take an allergin pill or something of the sort beforehand I am fine. I will also be taking acupuncture to help cure my allergin to horses.)
So my parents said that I would take riding lessons, get some experience, then maybe lease a horse for a while and see what it would be like, and if I liked it, we would get a horse, and we've already gotten permission to keep it at my parents' friends' place with their two horses. We would buy the horse in a year or two once I get some experience and do some more research.
So, I'm wondering, what breed of horse would be best for a beginner? Obviously it would have to know how to ride already. And I've heard some horses are more agressive/not as easy to handle as others.
I especially like Fjord Horses, and I've been told they're rather easygoing but are obstinate sometimes-
And I also like Curlies (hypoallergenic, supposedly, and that would be good for me)
Any suggestions? I know horses are a lot of work, but it sounds like a lot of fun. (I'm still researching.)
