Not to be a pain in a rear, but I agree with Anebel here. I'm in Maryland, and you will NOT get a good horse (at least for dressage or jumping) here for $1000 (unless you are very VERY lucky). Even as a prospect. Decent horses cost decent money even in this economy. Or if you get something cheap you'll pour lots of money into training or lessons.
With that being said if you plan on lower level dressage and with the good trainer I'd say mare is nice for this price (I assume you are not a beginner rider). If you decide on her - good luck! :)
