Just want to say......looking for a 3-year-old 3'6 jumper is asking for major trouble. And a lame horse.

Sunny- she did say 3-7 year old, and 2'6-3', not 3'6". I hope that she will take her time, but she said that she would take time to bring the horse up slowly.

As for the OP- Do you mean that you are going to buy a horse in at least 6 months, most 10? Because if you're looking now, all you're going to do is fall in love with a horse you're not ready for.

I did misread, I thought it was 3'6. But that is irrelevant to my initial point. If someone says their age range starts at three and they want a horse that's jumping in the 3' range....it sounds like they would consider a 3 year old jumper. I'm assuming the OP didn't mean for it to sound that way, but it's how I interpreted it. Also, if she wanted a horse she could jump /now/, why would she want to buy one who'd need atleast two years before she could competively jump? I'm just saying, it's how I understood it. But anyway, OP, best of luck finding a horse. :) Let us know how it goes.

I agree with haleylvsshammy on the point that looking for a specific horse now is probably not a good idea as the good ones won't likely be available in 6 - 10 months from now.

I would recommend picking up a Horse Trader (if you have those at your local tack shops) or checking out dreamhorse.com and other horse-sale sites to browser horses and prices and all that information. There is such a wide world of prices and horses and ages and training it's really impossible to try to generalize for you. It's so much fun to "window shop" horses though!

Some more sites google gave me:

Sunny, if it makes you feel any better that is how I read the OPs post too.

Training :broke, W/T/C , and jumping @ 2'6-3' without any problems

This line here implies that she wants something doing the jumping now, not that she wants something that in theory has the ability and she will wait to train it.
