Yeah, I've been looking at craigslist a lot but the most I've seen are a TON of english trained horses, a few draft mixes, and one paint who's front pasterns are so long and curved it looks like his fetlocks would touch the ground when he trotted.

All horses in NJ are significantly overpriced and no one wants to go down. The one I mentioned above with the long pasterns was priced at $1500 firm and he wasn't even registerable.

This is so stressful. My friend (trying to keep my spirits up) is taking me to a few tackshops tomorrow that are not in our area to look at their "sale horse walls" they apparently have one full wall of horse ads for horses in that area. Hoping I find something by word of mouth or a paper trail, the internet sure isn't helping me any.

I'm trying, this may be my first time horse shopping(got lucky with the first 2, I didn't have to look for them) but I know what I want and I am trying to stand as firm on that as I possibly can(though it is hard).

Not everyone who disagrees is a hater, it is perfectly OK for people to hold opposing views, hell got 3 horse people in a room and they will have at least 4 different opinions on anything
