Naw, you're fine, just needed a little more clarification.

The problem with auction horses is that you don't know what you're getting. Could be a great horse, or it could be a nightmare.

exactly, I just wanted to get some stories from people who have bought them. I've never bought an auction horse. Always have bought from people selling theirs. I know they can come with problems like lameness, cushings, ground manners and ride horrible.

Bring someone who is experienced in the auction world to help you, yes you can still end up with a bad horse but at least you can slim your chances of getting a bad one :)

Speed-here ia a link to the FB page for Camelot. They have quite a mix of horses and breeds.
https://www.facebook.com/CamelotHorseWeekly?fref=ts

If there is an auction tonite, they will be posting this weeks available horses tomorrow am. Then folks can call up and buy them from all over, and they do. Mostly folks who can afford one who doesn't work out, and many who train and flip them.

OP-where are you? Just curious-there is a nice little reining trained horse-a fabulous value-for sale in Southern NY-for $4500. I KNOW they have thousands in her in training. I have never been there, but there is also a place in VT who has wonderful horses-mostly western. They lease to most of the camps on the East coast in summer, and bring lots of horses in from the midwest. My trainers use them when they are looking for a client. I have no idea the prices, but I am pretty sure they are reasonable-and, since they do the leases, they can arrange transport for you I am sure. Here is the link to them.Horses for sale Vermont, Camp Horses for Lease, Selling Horses for sale VT, NH, CT, RI, MA, NY ME, NJ, PA, OH

I also think you should look all the usual places-dreamhorse, equine.com, equine now.com, etc.

Thanks, Frank. I don't usually look at auction sites, so for some strange reason thought most of Camelot's horses were TBs. I plead mentalpause based senility!

I knew you were in Pa, just not sure where, and there is a huge difference between say-philly area and where you will be going. I would think you will have some luck getting a western type horse in the Bradford area, plus, that is close to Ohio, which is huge QH country.

Even if it is all english around there, I am sure there are a few western horses. Here it is all western, but you come across the occasional english rider. I am western, and it was very easy to find a horse to suite me.
