Of course....some horses that were bought for a small amount can compete with the horses that are in the Maclay type classes, but if you were to actually get there on your "cheap" horse, you would probably be the odd person out.
I am not saying that a less expensive horse can't get there, but you get what you pay for really. And its easier to compete at that level when you do have money, and a horse who is going to lay down a perfect 8 every single outing. Those kids are in it to win it.
Good dressage horses are also expensive.
