3500 for an unbroken from a breeder is alright-ish, and sometimes you CAN get diamonds in the rough- you just have to look at the plain hard facts rather than letting the seller try and win you over etc.
Once the horse has 90 days under saddle, you're looking at double, sometimes triple price o.0
Which I don't have- I just have to wait and see for now.. need to sell Duffy first, but always a good idea to keep an eye on the market to see what isn't selling because there is generally a reason ;)
And the prices.
I have two options.
Go cheaper and buy an unbroken 3yo, or save for a couple of months and buy something with a bit of life experience.
I think I need to go for option 2 to be honest, because I'm a wuss! And something that is already sane under saddle will make me be able to crack on with riding, and my mum can ride too, which I really want. Ee, we will see!
