Help Me Find My Perfect Horse?

Okay, so perfect is a stretch, but I've been searching for almost 9 months, and still haven't found exactly what I want. Price HAS to be low. I've been looking into thoroughbred rescues and rehoming organizations, because I really love thoroughbreds and love the idea of adopting.

What I've been advertising is something young with little training but lots of potential. A good brain and decent conformation is a must! I have plenty of trainers with different backgrounds and approaches to help me. I am looking for barns to do a working student position with, so it'd be something I'd want to bring along myself.

I am pretty much looking for as cheap as I can get! I'd like to keep a budget of $1000. I go to school and work part time, so my money is limited, but it is doable!

Thanks!

In the NJ chapter, I've met both North Flash and Be A General. Fantastic, sweet horses!

Thank you! I've sent some emails around now.. I got a reply from someone who had a pictureless dreamhorse ad and attached below are the pictures I got. This is a 16h 4yo mare who is off track. Not sure how long off track, her current owners don't know. I know these are the worst for confo critiques, but they're all I got.

If your name suggests anything, then why not look into rescue Saddlebreds. Some great and often well trained, horses needing homes.

@FeatheredFeet I grew up riding them and love them a lot, but I'm not sure they're well suited for the discipline I show now.

@Phly I live in Rockville MD, but I would board in Manassas VA.

Hmmm well my suggestion was going to be check with the Amish if you were lookin for saddlebred's. That's most of the buggy horses. But PA would be a bit far I'd think. And if you're not set on a saddlebred I suppose that was kinda useless lol. Anyhows, I suppose knowing your location will be usefull in helping folks give ya leads on horses. Good luck

I think you're thinking Standardbred ;) Standardbreds are mostly used by amish to pull carts and buggies, I haven't heard of any Saddlebreds before.

Lmao! You're right. I even accidentally typed standardbred when I was typing it and went back and changed it. Brain fart
