I don't know your area, but where I am you wont find a dead-broke 5 - 12 year old for $3000.
You might want to look at something older, been there done that. The age range you're looking at for barrels and poles will probably be going for much more IF they act as you describe. People will pay a lot of money to have super safe horses for their kids. Plus, you're not going to find something THAT quiet at 5 - 6, I'd narrow it down to 8 - mid / later teens. Breeding farms don't just deal in foals, they often have horses of many ages for sale.

Alexis-she is in Florida, so she should be able to get a decent horse for $3K.

I get the feeling this is a kid who may or may not have told mom and dad who may or may not be on board......with $3K........Just a thought.

Exactly, and consider a proven mare that has been used as a broodmare for some years. Sometimes you can find very good, finished horses that have more than repaid a breeder's investment for a very nice price. They may not have been worked hard for a few years, but they don't forget their training.

On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.

Franknbeans, I wasn't sure. I did poke around some Florida classifieds and saw lots in the ~$3000 range, however none of them were listed as dead-broke, many were listed as prospects.

That was also one of my thoughts, judging from the content of some of the posts...

I'm not sure if you're looking for a smaller horse, but there's this one.

^ This one seems a bit fishey to me... Not a good picture, which isn't too surprising, but I think he's older than they're saying.

^These people seem like they have a bunch of handfull horses, but #4 Black Beauty seems like she might be a good one to look at. But she might be pregnant... Possible 2 for 1 at $1500.

Have you looked on Craigslist?

Only place I know of is in Vermont, and they are fabulous. They do the camp horses for most of the camps on the east coast and always have a large string of horses that they have brought in from the midwest. THey really are good.......and have great horses.
