    Yes that is a good chunk of money. I wouldn't think of paying that for the horse. I'm getting a deal because it's a friend selling him.

    I found out last night that I may already have a buyer for him in the spring. That would be to another friend that I would give a deal on. Basically, my costs for him. If I would sell him outright, I would try to get some profit. Nothing to get rich but a little something. Probably even less than the asking price now.

    I wouldnt give anything over 1500 for a horse with known training issues and that is pushing it. He isnt worth the money if he isnt safe right now.

    Sounds like questionable owners,as far as riding/training ability. That is probably much of this horses problem & now i'd question how much proper training this horse has & how much of the good has been undone. Agree that the horse is overpriced

    Why not? What if he was the perfect price?

    Just saying, what he was given to you for free?

    Not the horse for me, so I wouldn't take him even if he was free. No since in feeding something you do not want. I understand the not in a million years comment perfectly :)

    I also understand the comment but was just wondering the reason why. I know some wouldn't take on a known bucker but is there something else?

    I don't necessarily want or need the horse. We have 7 already. I would like to help the friend out and I would like to gain more experience in training. If I don't take him, there might be a good chance he would end up at an auction in the spring and the kill buyer would love to get him. I might be his last chance.

    Well the kb is not going to be paying near that much for his horse so if that is the case the price should drop over $2000 to get this horse at a loose horse price. In my part of the US you can get a horse with no issues for less than the asking price on this one. Your money and your call but I wouldn't take this horse for free as it is just as easy to feed a good horse with no issues as it does a horse that has issues. JMHO :)

    I think you should ride him a couple of times and make your decision from that.

    This sounds all to fishy to me. One price of a horse that's known to buck the thought of flipping the horse to make a profit ( No such thing these days ) The seller is a friend but you know nothing about the horse other then it bucks and 3 months professional training. Already have horse sold for spring Now that's amazing selling if you ask me. I never seen anyone sell a problem horse 6 months in advance and don't een know a thing about the horse other then it bucks. I roll my eyes on this one. JMHO
