I can’t afford a 70k FEI Master (Purebred Warmblood) so I’m looking for more of a Toyota Corolla version dressage horse prospects. My max budget is $7500 but would prefer to spend in the $5000 range. I would like to show a training level and move my way up to 2nd level. I’m also looking for a good disposition (close to bombproof). Any breed ideas or X breeds that would fit this criteria? I’m not ready to pull the trigger on a purchase yet, just trying to get some ideas for what I should be aiming for.
Maybe a Warmblood/Arab mix?
