Hey We speak and type english on this forum, not text. If you want to text, try your friends. Otherwise SPELL out your words. Your post is extremly hard to read.
To OP if still around, you need to take alot of lessons before every considering getting a horse of your own. That is how many end up in rescue. They are not easy to care for, very expensive, and extremly dangerous in the wrong hands. Try volunteering for a riding stable near you and learn everything you can. I started riding when I was 8yrs. Starting working student at a barn when I was 12yrs, and got my own horse(adopted abused tenn walker) at 14yrs. You can not just jump into it, you have to learn.

Now I don't have a horse, but I do ride so if you want a horse don't get a sporthorse. I know they are beautiful and they can do many things, but they can be very dangerous. If you ask me, lease a horse for a few months and decide if you want one. If you do, then get a laid back breed. I have heard that Quarter Horses are the best to start with. Also, Paints are good too, and draft horses are usually very freindly. But, because of size, I wouldn't recommend a Draft yet. Hope I Helped!!! :)
Has anyone been able to help this person get a horse? I understand what he is saying. The horse where he lives is needed for transportation, to better his life. Not for hobby. In that part of the world, although I have never been, could be a lot different than where we live in America. I do not own a horse or have any friends with horses, but what a cool idea to help a neighbor in another country with transportation through horses. Our country is founded on horses to help us get from one place to another.
