I could not find one like I breed for under $25K+. You will not find one for $3K. If they where out there my trainer would be grabbing them up left and right along with a lot of others I know. Reiners have gone up every year.

The rainers must not have droped like the all around horses. I have been having such a good time looking at horses I never could have aforded 5 yrs ago.

^Definitely true. All-arounders are a steal right now. Horses at the top of their game in intensively competitive disciplines, reiners, cutters, high quality roping horses are all still bringing good money. I think that it's great myself as those are the types of horses I breed, we haven't felt the hit like a lot of other breeders. The foal I am waiting on now is already sold, provided it isn't exactly what I'm after for myself, if I get a black filly I will have some disappointed buyers...so in some respects it's a buyers market as well as a sellers, depending on what you are after/have.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Which makes me very lucky cause the horses I want are lower priced I just need to make a few more stalls and build some fence.

It's funny because I swear we have the opposite situation here - where I live has such a truly pathetic quality show/breeding community, nobody can sell their champions and well bred foals. We just don't have the interest in province - the top breeders just don't have a market here and it's so sad. I've seen champion reiners and cutters for sale for over 6 months and the prices just keep dropping.

Trail and grade horses? Everyone is CLAMORING for them. We have a cheapskate horse dumb community, and everyone is looking for a "cheap" trail horse in as much that with any amount of decent trail experience, you can get over $2,000 for one right now. Granted, the issue is that you really can't make money on a trail horse as it boils down to experience far more then training and the time you have to put in to get a good reliable trail horse just isn't worth the $2,000 you're going to get in the end.

But just kind of sad how our economy works! I feel sorry for every person busting their butts to sell quality stock in a community where people wouldn't know quality if it kicked them in the head!

Thing is that there is not a big market for reiners her locally. I do not even try to market or sell then locally. Now I do not have to go fare as there are a lot of reiners in Ohio and Mi. Thing is you have to know where your market is and advertise accordingly.

I think the biggest issue is we simply don't have the recognition or respect in Manitoba. Our closest market for reiner/cutter type horses is Alberta and that's a over a thousand miles away. Saskatchewan is almost as horse poor as we are, and Ontario is into English riding almost exclusively. So people in Alberta just aren't interested enough in what we're offering to pay the shipping costs when they have just as good/better in their own area.

Quite frankly though, anyone setting up shop in Manitoba SHOULD know better from the get go.

Ontario has a lot of reiners. My trainer goes up there quite a bit.

I can under stand that location is a issue to some extent. Shipping and marketing into the US might be a better option really. Just depends on what you have to offer too.
