I have been looking for some time for a steady neddy to see my horse riding days out on. The initial cost has not been an issue, neither is the day to day cost and caring for the horse. I have seen a 17 year old horse which might suit me as I just want to hack, do pleasure rides and a bit of local dressage. My problem is whether an older horse will be suitable and what sort of vetting should I go for if I do decide to buy. When the time comes to do the decent thing I know that I could handle this. Thanks.
