    Oh really? Then it majority must be for gaited horses right now, because I got 2 paso finos, 1 eocky mountian, morgan coming in soon and a pinto stallion. How weird.

    Allie and Upnover you guys are seriously funny! LOL

    Do you know what is odd?! When I searched for local trainers in your area they were all much more expensive than you.

    I am paying 550 per month for training which includes boarding, feed, daily bathing after work out etc. for my 2 yr old he goes in May till the end of July. That is a little steep for around here most trainers are around 300-450 but I prefer someone close by(less than a mile from me) and training methods that this trainer offers. As far as the horse market goes? I don't think it could get much worse, yearling grade horses going for under 50$ at sales, people giving away horses and even trained riding horses are selling for under 200$ ( I know I just bought my daughter a 7yr old buckskin mare for $125)

    Huh. Imagine that.
    Try searching "charro trainers" instead... that might show some other results.

    I have to quit posting on this thread, my ramblings can only go downhill from here.
