    I would only take her if she was given to me free - with her issues, and she's small and unregistered whe's not currently worth anything.

    I never said you didn't know what you're doing if you are referring to me being one of those two people. You admitted you are over-horsed (which is a good thing) and I agreed with you. You don't have a marketable mare so I answered your question with a price of 0.

    Theraputic Riding horses have a a big role to fill and not a lot of horses can handle the role -- obviously this mare is ruled out for the position.

    Kudos for you for saving one, but I'm just a little confused how you ended up paying $400 to keep her from the auction, if she is small and fine she would of been a lot cheaper in the ring.

    This is nothing against you OP, but, dons flame suit, if she is really as dangerous as she sounds there, and she has had knowledgeable handling then in my honest opinion her value is even less than $0.

    As others have said there are so many really nice, uncomplicated, sound & sane horses who have fallen on hard times out there that I would be tempted to euth this mare. I know that some people will hate me for saying so, but once she leaves your farm you have zero control over what happens to her, and she could just keep getting into worse places and situations.

    Goodluck anyway, I hope you find a solution that works to everyone's best interest

    I'm one who won't hate you for saying that GH. I agree with you. It's unfortunately a sad reality that she is an unmarketable horse with no value. Kudos to you OP for trying to do the right thing for her but I think that you will find trying to re-home her a very daunting task with no certainty of what will become of her.

    I train for a living and I wouldn't take one as described even if it was free. More time, money & possible injury for one who quite frankly even if turned around wouldn't sell for what you put into it with feed, farrier, & vet expenses, let alone the time it would take.

    I learned the hard way some horses just aren't meant to be rescued at all, be it an auction or a private person. But the part I don't get is first the OP says she was saved from an auction, then it sounded like she was purchased from people who drugged her up, starved her and all manner of things. Or is this the other horse OP was talking about. I am confused.

    If you are planning on opening therapeutic riding I hope you are looking with open eyes at the type of horses required for this. Someone else posted on here why they don't use rescues and how the horses are tested and trialed before they ever sit someone on their back.
