For those looking to buy a horse

Seriously, anyone who is in the driving vicinity of this (my) area should consider looking here for horses. This is the best buyer's market I've seen yet, you can get some incredible horses for next to nothing!

I have an AQHA mare 4 years old un-started asking 500 for her but people aren't willing to pay that here. And she is a nice little mare. I just don't have time to start her. I even debated sending her to a trainer but even then I wouldn't have time to ride her. School takes up most of my time. Only reason I am considering selling her is she is super hung up on mom. She went through 2 fences to get to Dunny. Really irked me. It was a brand new fence.

Its the same over here in Bay County, Fl. as most of the ads are for free horses just to get them on someone else's ticket. I've seen some great looking horses for under $1000, but just don't have the room or monthly funds for them else I'd be drowning in equine.

I think she might make a nice little youth reiner down the road. Her dam is reining bred but her sire was wp bred I believe. Horrible cross imo but she will tuck her butt and spin. I will probably end up keeping her if I can get over being mad about my fence.
I know what you mean about free horses. I get offered free ones all the time. I don't have room for another horse either. The problem is I am into reining and most are western pleasure. Not really my thing though some have been extremely nice.
I have kept mine down to 4 but have a baby on the ground and one due next month. But I am also planning to move this summer. So should have more room.

The horse itself is cheap part, it's the training that costs the $$$$, the majority of those horses are not broke.
