The ads you are looking at are from the Houston and Katy area. I'm from the Katy area also.
Have you looked at the Facebook groups "Texas Horses for sale"? Or "horses in texas for sale"?
Some are real hit or miss but I have seen a couple on there that are worth a look.
A LOT of barrel horses on there also. Some have questionable conformation, but some look pretty nice...just gotta look. Only thing I don't like about the groups is there is a lot of repeat people selling horses...?? :)
Cheap prices on a lot of decent looking horses also. Most of the people are down for haggling or trades, especially when their horse doesn't sell like they think it will. Have also seen a few of them open to payments or trades. Might be worth a browse if you have a Facebook account.
Not all of the horses are in houston area, but some are in the surrounding areas. Posted via Mobile Device
