The economy is horrible right now, but it is, actually, a business for a lot of people- my neighbor does that, actually! He buys horses for almost free off the reservation, then trains them (he's a very good trainer, too) and sells them for a lot more... or he used to get a lot more, not now. He's not been able to do as much lately... But still, there are people who do this for most of their living.
I think in the right hands, this is a good business.

It's much harder these days. In the late nineties and early 2000's it was pretty easy to pull a TB off the track for next to nothing, put a few months training on it, go to a few shows and sell it for several thousand but the market won't support that kind of turnaround on a regular basis any more.

You can still get them for next to nothing but it is much harder to sell them at a profit.

Thank you, that would be great. If you don't mind I would love to know, however don't go out of your way.

Eh, won't be that big of a deal to get the info. Brother is actually riding a colt right now that he plans to take down there in the spring so he and Shane keep in touch .

Idk if it could be a full time career or anything due to the times, but you might be able to score a little extra cushion money if you play the game right.

I do this every once in a while if I feel the urge too lol. I go to sugarcreek, the big horse auction in Ohio, pretty frequently and every once in a while i'll find a good looking well built young horse. Buy it for anywhere around 20$-50$, test it out in the parking lot, run it around bareback then go ahead and run it through the sale again, but this time "ride" it in. Can usually pull in a few hundred. Did it two weeks ago. Horse was 25$ sold it for 375$. But hey it was taken off the meat truck so i"m happy for the little booger.

(his might seem wrong but for an 18yo girl it can be loads of fun in moderation!
