Buying 2 year old hunter prospects
Do you think it's realistic to be able to foresee the potential of such a youngster to be suitable for the hunter ring? I want something fancy, but with my budget I am going to have to go with something that hasn't been started. I don't have an issue with this because my trainer has started plenty of babies, and I am somewhat of a capable rider.
My question is-do you think you can really get a feel for whether or not a horse will make up to a fancy hunter at just 2 years old? Also, what do you look for (what is most important) when looking at such a prospect? Any advice?
