Okay so in 2 years, when im about 16, id like to be able to buy my own personal horse. I wanna start saving now. I would like to get a project horse I.e. An OTTB. I currently own a 3 year old paint that I've been training.but my dad pays for all of his expenses. So he controls what I do. My paint is really lazy and I wanna move up into thejumper world. So the thought crossed an OTTB. I no 2 years is far away. But better start now.
Okay so finally my question is... how much do you pay for a OTTB. I mean like buying wise and medical expenses(if they differ from an non OTTB). And what experience level do I need to have? Its kind of a stupid question but I want to know what experience levels people have when buying them. I know OTTB and horses are big commitments and are hard work and I totally understand that and im dedicated. And where could I find one near northern IL. Websites please??
