I wouldn't go with the $500 figure but I think people are quoting the 5-8k ones because there are plenty of people that are desperate to sell at present that are prepared to accept much less and are advertising horses for lower money simply to attract more buyers and move them on
In the UK I could buy a 16.2 4 yr old gelding by Roma Skip Diamond (ID) x TB mare that's already competing in unaff. Dressage and started jumping and pay to ship it over here and still pay less than they want for this horse - simply because the owner wants the cash in the bank and not eating its head off in the stable
