Well-they will all be mares this year, at least in NJ. Not sure what you messaged her about, but she is SUPER busy, with kids, 2 mustangs to train and a training barn to run. I will say that some trainers bid on their own horses every year, and many are sold.

Well, I'm not sure what your budget is, but mustangs are a dime a dozen the further west you go -- even the ones that are under saddle. Have you considered paying transport for a saddle trained mustang further west who is being sold for less?

How about this one? Might be worth looking into.

smrobs - you said they may have older broke horses? Or gentled ones? Do you know if they would still transport to NY for pick up?

Eolith - I was wondering how much the transport would cost. I contacted on transport on a mustang page on Facebook, and they woman never got back to me. But if it's cross country, couldn't it be thousands?

If you haven't already, join the group called Adopt a Living Legend on Facebook. If you share your mustang-longing woes there, I can guarantee that people will go above and beyond to help you find the perfect match. Plus, there's a lot of people rehoming their mustangs there.

Eolith - I am a part of that group, and I have posted haha! That is how I found the woman that was selling the buckskin appy, but then was asking more than I expected.

Yes, sometimes they do have older started and/or younger gentled horses for adoption.

Right now they've just got the one filly that's gentled (not ridden as she's only a yearling but), but in their last adoption, they had 5 or 6 horses ranging in age from 3 to 7, that were broke to ride. Some only had 30 days, others had 70+ rides on them.

I would assume that they would still transport to a satellite site just as if it was a wild one, but you'd need to ask them.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

In that case, have you seen the bay mustang in Iowa going for $700? Looks like he's pretty well broke. Again, I don't know your budget... but shipping might not be too horrific if you play your cards right.
