Appendix Quarterhorses can be very versatile. I have known a few that made really good jumpers and event horses. Of course they had the right conformation and speed...
Here is the bottom line. A really good horse.. with the mind and body.. to do eventing and so forth is probably going to command a really good price. I know that at the higher levels a $30,000 horse is not good enough.. because if it was, it would command $60,000.
Here we are looking for a diamond in a pile of rocks. They are there, but you gotta move a lot of rocks to find them. In this market after several years of the horse business having been a sellers market up to 2007-08 there is are a lot more rocks of using age then ever... they were bred to sell for a profit and not to perform.
Now the bottom has dropped out and those horses are the ones you need to sift through to find the diamonds.
