Someone offered to give me a horse today. A 6 year old bay gelding that has been backed, done some jumping and is now just standing in a field doing nothing. Apparently he is quite a sharp horse who needs a lot of riding and schooling. The person that offered him to me specialises in breeding, training and selling show jumpers/eventers. The fact that he usually sells his horses has me slightly suspicious that there is something wrong with this horse but his niece who schools the horses and is a good friend says there isn't. He doesn't even know me well but I've been helping his niece with a 3 year old she's working with and I've done a few jobs for him recently. He's seen me riding and jumping both the horses I currently ride and he was going to offer to let me ride one of his with the 3 year old to keep it calm but the 2 I ride do the job just as well so that hasn't come up again. I need to talk to my mum and dad properly about it but I could just about to afford to keep a horse with what I make now but it would mean that I would have no money for anything else and I'm supposed to be saving for a car/insurance and driving lessons. Any advice?
