Perfect example. I was just looking at horse ads on Craigslist and found two horses listed together. One was a very nice paso fino mare with tons of training. She was listed for $800. The other was a greenbroke 8yo quarter horse mare with only halfway decent bloodlines. She was listed for $2500. Around here, stock horses sell...everything else is just a novelty with little to no market.


Man,around here you can not find a Paso Fino for under 3-5k,and that's just for the youngsters!

Cobs are everywhere in the uk, i'm not a huge fan of the heavier one's I prefer em with a bit more lightweight otherwise I always think they look like little barrels.
Was he ever advertised on a fb page called everything equestrian? I think I remember nebbing, either that or there was one that looked very similar to him haha.

It never fails to amaze my how drastically horse prices can vary from region to region..It is probably a good thing that I live here instead of somewhere in the States,or else I would be buying horses right,left,and center!

Tell me about it... If the price of importing a horse wasn't so ridiculous, I'd have a horde of overseas horses.

Horses here, California, in my area, unless specialized training, ei jumping , reining cutting, are not worth much.. many have gone to rescues, you can pick a grade horse that is kid safe for free , $500.00 , up to about $2000.00 You can also pick up some registered horses for teh 1-5 thou price that have nice training.

He walks, trots and canters. That's a good thing, but so do most horses. And all that hair is impractical. You'd be lucky to give him away around here.

They may walk trot and canter, but they also buck, bolt, and rear. This is a nice little horse.

I've seen Paso Finos go for as little as $200.00. Just depends where you are looking. You have to know where the low income/low cost of living horsey areas in the country are lol.

Think of it not as a failure but as a success in how not to do it.

Don't look in a horses mouth for a gift.
