Any time you think "this price is too good to be true!" It is 99 times out of 100.
Good luck on your horse search!
I agree. My trainer's 4 year old mare who's only show experience has been on the line and has only been jumping under saddle for a 2 weeks sold for 30k. Granted, she's very quiet, easy to ride, and already does her lead changes, but I would always question a cheap wb.
