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.

OK, it's down hill time.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.
