  • The horse's size. Make sure the horse is the right size for you.

  • The horse's health. Make sure the horse is healthy and free of any major problems.

  • The horse's training. Make sure the horse is trained to the level that you are comfortable with.

  • Local horse farms

  • Online horse classifieds

  • Horse rescue organizations

When you are looking at horses, be sure to take them for a test ride. This will give you a chance to see how the horse feels and to make sure that it is a good fit for you.
