    I don't know I would try and improve on my riding more if i were you before i went looking for a new horse. The horse you have may work out if you work at it hard enough. But if you really want a easy well mannered horse look for older horses up for adoption at rescues. But remember no horse is totally predictable.

    i agree that it is hard to work with a green horse if you dont have the experience. i had a trainer look at my horse this afternoon. He tied one forefoot to her upper leg and she hobbled round til she was worn out. Then for the first time in ages i rode her with out getting bucked off. Now i dont suggest u try this, im just saying that working out an energetic horse can help. I now plan to spend a few weeks so she will be fit to sell in a few months time. Im also going for a quieter horse. Between the ages 10 & 20 is good. I also wanna do tha same stuff. When ever looking at cheep horses, be carefull, because what might seem like a sweet horse when you go look at it could actually be a monster. Good luck

    My advice, for what its worth - TAKE RIDING LESSONS! Make sure you know how to control a horse, give me cues, etc. I hate to see a green rider jerking and kicking a horse around, because he doesn't know any better. Like was already said, NO horse is completely predictible. An older one is more likely to be more predictible, but truly bomb proof is very difficult to find. If a horse doesn't know what you want, and you keep tugging on him and kicking on him, he will often become frustrated, and then you have ruined a good horse. Find a good instructor who can put you on a lesson horse and show you how to tell a horse what you want it to do. Its the kindest thing for the horse you will eventually be buying.
