Amy Tryon's Olympic horse, Poggio, was bought for $400 as a pack horse in Colorado. NOT KIDDING!

I love, love, LOVE stories like that. Some dumped unneeded horses end up being such great competitors (both english and western).

I always loved hearing Jill Henneberg's story of her find with Nirvana...whom she purchased off the track for $600...and went on to compete in the 1996 Olypmics on the US Team. Again, a diamond in the rough. :o)

Thoroughbreds dominate the eventing world. If they're built well and have the mind for it a lot of them can go far. Personally I prefer European and Australian bred TBs, just because they have a little more bone that American TBs, but still, most TBs can do well in eventing. Along with Irish Sport Horses and Draughts. Gotta love those Irish horses. <3

The Irish Sport Horse stud book is number 1 in eventing, I think.
