Before buying, you will probably take a closer look at several animals you like. And we will give you some good tips for choosing. First warning. You should not think that the purer the blood of a horse, the brighter its temperament. This is not true. For example, many riders have encountered fairly calm Arabian stallions. At the same time, medium-sized local horses are very often very temperamental horses in communication.
If you have a choice among horses of different breeds, then we will give some small tips:
- Do not discard horses of local breeds. In the UK, for example, they include the Connemara, the Welsh Pony, the Cob, the Irish Draft Pony, and the New Forest Pony.
- Local breeds of horses crossed with thoroughbreds have been widely used since ancient times as excellent riding horses. Local breeds are easily adaptable universal animals that can require only minimal human care and, in which case, they will even try to spend the winter on a pasture.
- 3. Thoroughbred horses are often used at races, for hunting, or as pleasure horses. A beginner horseman should not look at them, because it will take a lot of effort to retrain such a horse for himself, a beginner, and spend a lot of time to make it suitable for family outings.
- 4. Half-breed horses often have a calm disposition, which should be ideal for a beginner. Indeed, they are great for riding. Today, many consider the best horses for dressage and show jumping to be half-breeds, half-breeds. Therefore, the prices in the market for such breeds are now rising.
However, for students, many stud farms specifically breed half-breeds for beginners. Here are some examples of terms that may be useful to you when reading sentences. Half-breed (crossbreed) – a horse in which one of the parents belongs to a purebred breed. “Hot blooded” is usually the name of a thoroughbred horse of some oriental breed, for example, an Arabian. Or is it an instance of a thoroughbred riding breed. Half-breeds are horses of mixed blood, used for both riding and harnessing.
