Hello everyone. I am looking for a gaited, bomb proof horse. I say bomb proof because it will be for a kid that is beginner. If you have any prospects, please let me know. Thanks!!

I am actually looking for a friend, I think she has picked one out. Thanks so much for the info, you're so right, no such thing as "bomb proof". Horses most definetly have minds of their own which is part of what makes them so special. Thanks again!!

What will you do with the horse when the chils is done with him? I have a great gelding, but he will have to go to an excellent home. What price range are you thinking of?

I rekon if you can shoot off of one it's dern near "bomb proof".... I have a gelding that is awesome. I can get on him and "cluck" and he'll squat like he's on pads.... put a kid on him and he plods...the breeders of this horse were amazed at how he is... he was bred to be HOT! Nope, not so much....unless he knows he has a rider that knows what they are doing....

I have owned 2 "bomb proof" gaited horses, both of which I bought for my kids (one was 17 yrs old, the other was 3 yrs old). No injuries in 7 yrs. I have sold them since then because my kids, who are 9 and 12 now have outgrown them and wanted more spirited horses. So just be careful who you buy from and test them out before you buy. I will keep an eye out for you! Good luck.....

No such thing! You just have to make the best decision you can and realize they are 'living' creatures with minds and wills of their own. Some just have a better mind and disposition than others. I got my first when I was 5, two broken arms and several stitches later, I still love and ride my horses. Private lessons with the horse you choose for your child would help both of them have a safer and more positive experience. Take your time and really look around. There are a lot of good horses out there but not many 'perfect' ones.
