TB Mare Off Track. No sure how comfortable you would feel with that. She sure looks like a heck of a mover, and nicely made up. She's about 2 hours from tulsa.
That girl is pretty!

Yes, OK=Oklahoma.
That is absolutely crazy that your prices are that cheap! Lol

I didn't think about looking at off track rescues, great idea! I think I am up for the challenge, especially if I can get a good deal.

I think that an OTTB would be a great choice for you, both because a TB could really excel in eventing, and because the price point you have would be easy to accomodate.

The first girl looks really great, she seems to have a lot of suspension in her trot which would prove well for dressage and jumping.

The guy from the TB Rescue seems to be another good choice and is cheaper. But I would look around at rescues, they usually have great horses that are just looking for a great home, I know that there are a lot here in maryland. Lots of the OTTB are free, many people around here are looking for warmbloods and other high end horses the TB's usually get sent to auction. If you can give one a great home I think that they would be ideal for you. :)

Thanks! Unfortunately Valentine Gamble at the OTTB rescue is already adopted out, but Robin (ottb rescue manager) gave me the email address to someone who needed a home for their ottb so I'll get some info about that one.

I think an OTTB could be a great choice for you providing you can find a sound one! They are semi-broke, easy to train leg aides since they are used to jockeys positions which involve no leg, athletic and wonderful horses! All you would need to do is re-educate them to the bit which you would be more than capable of.

Of course, I am heavily biased.

Mostly, I just like posting directly after you as our avatar pictures are so similar except inverted ha ha, alway makes me giggle.

I'm not sure how far away these guys are from you but it might be worth a look:

Hahahaha! That made me smile! I hadn't noticed. That is great

Lol great I am really obsessed with getting an ottb now! They just seem like such special horses. It would make me feel good to give them a second chance, though in a way it seems vain of me :P


Those are really nice horses, I looked at Picacho Pass earlier. Sadly, they are out of my price range :(
