I plan on getting a baby appaloosa but I'm only 13 and have to pay for it myself. I'm so happy except I don't want to pay so much for something I may not enjoy. Would someone please tell me if this is the right choice or if I should go for something else!?

    Appaloosas can have good temperaments. It depends! Other good horses are Quarter Horses and Paint Horses.

    It really depends on many factors. What type of horse are you getting? How old is the horse?

    just try and feed it different things and see if it likes it but i recommend you look the horse up before hand.

I'm 11 years old and I just got a 3 year old horse and she's fixing to have a colt. Will she do any thing to harm it if I go in to take care of her? Please reply.

I'm possibly (hopefully) going to get a horse. I'm really interested in the appaloosa breed, but I am an english rider, and I don't know if the breed would do well as a hunter jumper? And also is this breed cheap? Like Vet wise and Health.

    The Appaloosa horse is a hardy breed, but will require the same equipment, care, feed and veterinarian services as other durable breeds. The average cost of maintaining and caring for a horse can run about $2,500 and up per year.

Hi! I was wondering if appaloosa's would be good for barrel racing. Please reply!

    Yes, the Appaloosa can be very adept at barrel racing. Barrel racing is a sport that became part of rodeos to show off the skills of cattle horses. These horses are able to turn very sharply when needed  (and maintain speed) for herding cattle.  Although the quarter horse is the breed usually identified with this, the Appaloosa can be very competitive. Some say they are a bit harder to train, but others ademantely dispute that claim.

I have a two year old and she is the love of my life. She is so sweet and loving to me. However when I'm not around people say she always bites or kicks them but she never does when I'm around. She also has social issues because where I bought her from she was kept in a round pen for her life. How can I solve her issues? I also heard having two year olds are dangerous and unpredictable especially Appaloosa's. I do not want to sell her shes my baby ♥ any advice?

    What a great horse to have! It sounds like you have a good relationship with her. Don't have any ideas about her social issues, but I'm not sure that it matters how she is with others unless you have to make sure they have a good relationship with her too. As she is young, it may be that she needs time for adjustment and to know what to expect in her home. Good luck.

I own an appaloosa and I am very lucky to have her. She is my best friend, I could've never asked for a better friend. She has defended me from other horses that get jealous. I love her. If you are looking for buying a first time horse, an Appaloosa is a very good choice. =)
