    I don't have to pick on of these, but I really wanna get a horse from MNRRP because I think that it would be nice to rescue a horse from there. I don't live real close to any of these horses but that is one of the only ones that I have heard of. Does anyone know any other retired racehorse programs around the country?? It doesn't matter where.

    IMO you can find a very nice horse for under $1000 if you are willing and experienced enough to pick and train a sound OTTB. And there are a lot of them out there, needing someone like you.

    PS - I like the mare May. Don't like the gelding at all.

    There is a veterinary dentist that runs an OTTB rescues. He keeps most of the horses in North Dakota but does foster them across MN. We have a mare from his program at our barn and she's fantastic.

    Most of his horses don't get the handling you'll see with CANTER and MNRRP horses, but the ones that are fostered out get fairly extensive training. I'll dig up his contact info for you.

    Oh, and one thing to keep in mind about May is that she does have the injury that will keep her from higher levels and will require injections. Honestly, I expected her to be more balanced than the video shows since they claim she is trained in higher levels, and surrendered back to the rescue due to the injury.

    I definitely like the mare. She is a very nice mover. I don't they are bad options for you at all. If you are a beginning-er rider I would definitely consult with your trainer to just make sure you are confident and able enough to handle the mare! She looks like she'll be a lot of fun, but also a lot of work!

    I don't know where you are in the US but I think you are right about getting a nice horse for $1000.. especially if they aren't broke completely!
