    Since I dont see either horse being ridden, its hard to tell which one to chose for riding.

    I wouldn't pick any one of them. The first horse sorta has a sway-back, I don't like that. And, how old are these horses? Could you get pics of them undersaddle?

    For just yer basic recreational riding, what mainly matters are soundness, temperament, and training-appropriate-to-your-needs. None of which can be evaluated very well from a photo [​IMG]

    (Though I would say that neither of those two specimens look likely to be especially sound for anything but *light* riding because of their weak toplines (insofar as one can tell from a single pic, which isn't 100% reliable)). Often likely unsoundnesses can be seen in good pics of legs but neither of those pics is suitable for that kind of thing.

    If you really want to go look at them, go look at them, see them ridden, maybe try them, and then you will have a much better idea of what you think [​IMG]

    Good luck, have fun,

    Pat

    thanks!

    I was looking at these Horses for you and My Dh said what are you looking at? I said horses someone wants to know which one they should buy.

    DH said thats easy just get one with a leg in either corner???? [​IMG]
