    There are several ways - working through a re-purposing/rescue group is one of the most common. Auction houses are usually pretty full of them, too, but that approach is much more of a risk as you don't have the advantage of the horse having already been through evaluation, retraining, etc via the rescue. The availability and ease of finding one will have a lot to do with where you are located. Our's came to us via what amounted to a broker that had picked up a lot of four at an auction.

    Pretty much what themacpack said. I got this guy threw New Vocations a Thoroughbred/Standardbred rescue and they have various locations. I had to be approved to adopt first but they made the process pleasant and swift. Then it was just a matter of waiting.

    I know some people up in Aiken, SC where there is a big race track. They get them right from the breeder or right off the track if the horses are not competitive.

    I'm not sure where you would find a QH other then an a rescue that deals with all breeds or an auction. My friend got a very nice appie mare from Camelot Auctions when it was still functioning.

    MangoRox - you could try contacting a local racetrack/trainer - theres always going to be a few slow ones kicking around that they would love to find a good home for.

    WoW he is absolutely gorgeous! He looks very very big. I really like him.

    You'll definitely have to keep us updated (which of course I know you will).

    How excited for you!

    Thanks Thyme, I do to. He is not what I would describe as beautiful. But he is impressive looking to me. And I like his masculine head lol. There was another 6 yo TB that was just breathtaking, but he had some arthritic changes in his ankle and I likes Forum's movement better.

    Brackenbramley, I would like to get into dressage more as well and in a few years am interested in some low level eventing :)
