While I'm not exactly shopping right now, I am starting to look around for a horse of my own and I feel I would really enjoy working with an OTTB.
I have been riding for about 11 years, and over those years have worked with many different temperaments and ages of horse, in particular a very strong willed, firey old mare who very few people could handle, as well as work with young and untrained or partially started horses. I realize that OTTBs can be a challenge, and I am prepared to deal with that and work through it :)
What I was wondering is where does one find an OTTB to adopt? I have been browsing Canter, which seems like a great source, but I am in Arkansas, and most of those horses are a good 9 hours at least from me. Are there any other groups like that more spread across the country? Something in Missouri or Texas would be great!
