This is Randall Powell with Expert Village
and in this clip we’re going to talk about how to choose a horse. Your first consideration
when choosing a horse is the proper use for the horse. If you’re choosing a pasture horse,
a beginner horse, or a rodeo horse. They also have horse shows and you can pick horses for
that discipline also. You just need to find a horse that’s trained for whatever discipline
you’re going to be using him for. If you’re looking for a beginner horse, you want to
go to a place that teaches lessons and get a horse that’s broke and really calm, preferably
an older horse. If you’re a kid just starting to ride you’d want to get a pony, a welsh
pony, or a Shetland pony. Pony’s aren’t baby horses, they’re just smaller versions of horses.
They’re full grown, they’re just a little smaller than the average horse. That’s what
makes them good for kids but the Shetland ponies tend to be a little more ornery than
the rest of the horse breeds. If you’re going to do rodeo and need a horse that’s pretty
athletic and can get around a younger horse preferably horses that have quite a bit of
training you know, they’re going to be a little more expensive. There are some good tips in
helping you find a horse.
