Do you own your own pasture? If the horse will be boarded at a stable you may be able to work off his boarding costs by doing chores there. My thoroughbred is stabled and he is in the pasture 24/7 and hay twice daily is included in his boarding fee. I just supply his grain.(7.00 per bag) I spend 30.00 on ferrier costs about every 8 weeks, wormer every 6-8 weeks(6.oo per dose) . He has had to have antibiotics once for three days and that costs 7.00 for a big bottle I can use again. I gave him the shot myself so no vet cost there. If you have your own pasture all you will have to pay for is ferrier costs and worming. And an occasional vet visit. It can be done..) I payed nothing for him so that helped..I think 150.00 is a deal..

My first thought is what is wrong with this horse to be only $150??????????
I have to disagree that it has a club foot. I think it's just standing funny.

I think this thread is a bit old and not sure the author is keeping an eye on it...
How experienced are you? I would also lease a horse, to get experience or at least practice. Or maybe a lease to own type of deal??? Until you get a job and have steady income it isn't fair to the horse. What happens if the vet has to come out and you owe them $500 or $1000? Would the horse have to suffer because you can't afford it? Lot's of stuff to think about.

Like the saying goes - there's no such thing as a free puppy! ...or $150 horse.

hmmm...I agree on most of this. But I have read several stories where people have managed to support a horse all by themselves. It was tough work, but they made it through...
I too, am in the same boat as you. My parents are letting me buy a horse, but I have to get a job etc. They said they will probaly help me out though.
That;s a very nice horse
