    How much does a lease usuaully cost. Imean its 365 a month to board over there that includes the stall, feeding twice a day and cleaning after the horse twice a day. How much extra would it be?

    It would be the same proce or half board, depending on how many times aweek you can ride on half board

    Californians, being one myself, have a tendency to try and take advantage of the horse market. I would not buy that horse unless you had him vet checked and ridden by a friend who knows a LOT about horses, or you may very well get yourself into a position that will cost you a lot of extra money. Just from the pictures, I can see that he is a little short at the knees and a little bit over. This is just going to make him a little bit clumsy and make him have a shorter stride. So he might just have to work a little bit harder and that's why he's sweating. Sweating isn't necessarily bad though, as long as he's not breathing too hard he should be just fine. If you want to work on his stamina, I would start with 20 minutes of forced exercise at a trot once a day every day until he is no longer breathing hard at the end. Then I would increase to 30 minute sessions, and then to trotting him up hills with a gentle slope, and increase the incline as he shows improvement. It's good to build up a horse with his conformation slowly because it will make him less apt to injuring tendons and joints. He looks like he would be a good match for you, but if he is not registered, don't pay more than 2,000 for him.. the way he is and the fact that he's a rental horse I would offer him 1,800 simply because I know he's safe to ride. But look around at different horses for sale in different areas, particularly Escondido/San Diego. You will find gorgeous registered horses that are the same age that you can ride that have had professional training and come with vet checks/ written guarantees of health and soundness. So don't settle with just one, if nothing else look just for the added experience!

    I think he might be a Quarter horse crossed with either haflinger or hackney but I guess it all depends on how tall the horse is?!

    If he's small maybe he's a quarter pony?

    Well he sure is a cute horse!! And I agree with him being QH andpart draft of some kind. And I also would not pay that much for him, to to get teh owner to go lower. Also with leasing a horse (i lease my horse) well here in the Central Valley where I ride it is only like $240 a month to lease which includes tack to use, feed twice a day, and stall cleaned out a few times a week (which I hate cause my horse gets real bad thrush).

    Yes, he's most likely some sort of Draft x QH. But when I first saw him, I thought a Cob. He looks kinda tiny, but it's probaly the angle of the picture.

    Nice looking pony but definitely get him vet checked, farrier.. the lot.. just to be sure.. just by looking at the picture he seems to be quite long in the pasterns which will put pressure on his splints, his cannons are fairly short which may make him clumsy and bumble footed and he holds his head quite high but that may just be the was the photo is taken.. his tail could be a fraction higher but that just may connected to his back being quite short with a long rump.. he may have too many vertabre but he's got a nice slope to his shoulder and nice lenth of neck to he'll be able to round up nicely.. this is all judging by one picture though and it could be the camera angle to don't use this as definate lol

    I would say $3500 is too much, but of course that's just judging on the picture, his conformation and what you've said.. get a blood test in the vet check because we made that mistake and the horse turned up with bowel cancer 3 months later.. not pretty..

    If he is a draft cross that could explain why he's easaly over heated they arnt ment to have a ton of endurance
