So I have someone coming out in 45 minutes to look at my horse. He also has a paint horse that does extreme cowboy races. Fun, right? Well, I've always shown pleasure and never trail rode - so it'd be a change of pace. We talked, I told him I was open to x amount or possibly trade. He has nice horses - he is actually the same person who bred and trained my horse. But, now I'm fighting with my head....do I want a riding horse or go the opposite direction and get a mini with a cart and start out in a new thing (something I always thought would be fun)? Actually, if I did end up trading him - it'd be a new thing, too. Pros/Cons? I know some about minis and really having to watch them on grass and being fed. But, can they be contained in horse fencing? Are mini shows just as common as riding horse shows? Obviously I can only truly answer this in the end - but I am open to opinions. I have one other horse - who is a pasture puff as she is never sound from a very bad infection she had last year. I have a three strand electro-braid fence and individual 12x12 stalls.
