Buying a Horse You Can't Ride
Hi, so I tore my ACL recently, and I can't ride for months. I had an idea that I could buy a cheap, young high quality prospect, and have my trainer train him up while I am rehabbing my knee. Then, by the time I could ride, I could have a well trained high quality horse for less than the price of buying a made one, and it would give me some kind of riding type thing to do while I am rehabbing.
What do you guys think? Do you think it would just drive me absolutely insane to have a horse and watch him get trained up and not ride? My trainer is a pro at finding prospects and making them great, a horse she bought a few years ago as a 2' 4 year old is now showing 3'6 rated at 7 years old, hoping to move up to 4', and currently priced at almost 100,000 dollars.
What do you think?
