What is a good age for a horse to buy?


Answer by  Rock (17)

For a beginner you want to look for a 10-15 y/o broke horse, the best ones are former ranch/feed lot horses nothing spooks them. For intermediate a good horse would be 6-15 years old For advanced 3-4 just green broke and you are able to finish off the training. You can safely ride a horse till its about 25

Buying a horse that is 2 years old is good because the horse has been weened, but is still young enough to be trained to meet your needs.

This depends on the age and experience of the rider, and what you want to do with the horse, for instance a young horse is better if you want to train it in dressage, or to ride out frequently, but an older horse will be a steadier ride for a beginner or someone with less time available.

Five years or older, it's still young and depending on training would be good place to start. Even senior horses of fifteen years would be good because of being calmer.

That is going to depend on how long you want to keep it and if you're going to use it for riding or just to eat grass in a field. Horses can live up to 30 years, so it's definitely a long-term commitment.

If you don't know much about horses get one that is about 15 or older. Horses can be dangerous and most people underestimate their strength.
