No I don't resell the horses when I get them. The horses I am looking for are for my sister. She is in the beginner 4h horses club and she wants a horse. Theses horses are going to be for kids 4h.. I am going to retrain them and teach the 4hers how to take care of a horse, how to ride them, the dos and donts of a horse and many more.

So the question to you is how much are you willing to spend on a horse?

Striving to always excel in everything I do. Whether I fail or not I always try to do better than last time.

I don't know.. My mom is the one who is buying them, she just told me to find a couple that are cheap or free. I did find one that is free, the horse is 22 years old, a broke beginner horse and is a 4h horse. I am going to longmont this Saturday to go take a look at him.. I bought my mustang for 600 and he is 10 years old and is a wonderful horse.. I love him so much.

We can't help you until you set a price range. If you had posted the information from your later posts in your OP, you would have gotten better responses. Not giving us any information doesn't help a thing. If you train horses, why can't you train one of the horses on your "big ranch" to be child-safe?

Try equine.com, dreamhorse.com, equinenow.com, horseclicks.com, horsetopia.com.

It's actually much easier to say than do. The true "child-safe" horse has to have a right mind in addition to all training put in. I've seen some awesomely trained horses (both - western and english) still I would NOT call them child-safe or beginner-safe.

^Very true. However, with the price range she has for a bulletproof horse, perhaps looking within the herd they already have would be a better alternative to consider before buying.

Ok let me say it again we have 10 horses, 3 of which are mine but all of them are not child safe and you can not just train one to do so... you can not train an experence horse to be child safe.. I've tried but I can't get them to.

Yes, I agree. Child-safe horses are NOT cheap unless you are very lucky to get one (and well, it happens too, just not often ).

OP, I wish you all luck to find one cheap, but it may take a while.

try horseclicks.com you might find some luck there. Just be careful because most horses are free or cheap for a reason. Especially if it is for your 8 year old sister. Just be sure the train whatever horse right and make sure he/she is 100% safe before putting your sis on there. I'm not saying you're an idiotand don't already know that lol I just feel better if I atleast said be careful! I'm selling my Appendix who needs some more training. He is having trouble picking up his lead and is now fighting with us about fixing it. I believe he is trainable but I just don't have the money to keep putting in to it. He is in Fl though so that might be a bit far. He is 10 and gorgeous!!!
