Help me horse hunt if you're bored enough!

I'm no good at trying to find horses online. Anyone want to help? Its more fun and much more succesful when you aren't looking for yourself...haha

Must be a gelding. Must be under 11 years old. I'd prefer around the 15 hand range. Good confo is a must. Western state area please: California (best), Washington, Oregon, Nevada, Arizona.

I'm looking for a horse to bring to college and compete on the rodeo team. I've found lots of "rodeo potential", so useless. I need a horse who has experience at rodeos and have been roped off of and chased cows (cutting or penning). Pole bending is a plus. Barrels aren't neccessary.

My budget is around $3,500. A litter higher is fine.
Thanks guys!

Too bad you're not looking outside that area a little, have a gelding who'd be a fairly good fit. Is off the pro rodeo circuit where he was a pick up horse - so he's been there done that!

Remember the economy sucks and it costs a lot to feed a horse. If you see a good one, make an offer. The worst they can say is no.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.
