    rescues?

    Anybody have experience with rescues? I have limited funds because i'm in high school so i'm looking at rescue. I have NO experience with training young horses, but some with riding green horses. Is there any rescues that are allready trained as jumper/hunter? I am jumping 2' 6" and would like it if the horse could do at least 2', is this way too much to ask?
    I was browsing and found this, it's too far away for me, but i'm just curious to see what you guys think. There was no placement fee. And when they say "will jump anything" what does that mean? I don't want to contact the lady b/c I know this is too far away, but still...

    Thanks!

    resque horses can be either ones that have been previously abused, ones that just didn't sell at an auction, ones that their riders outgrew (age or height wise, or ability) or ones that were taken from their home also due to abuse.
    You can get a good horse there, once that would be good for hunter/jumper, but you also may not. It depends on where you look.
    Where are you located? If you are close to me I might be able to suggest some good places to get a fairly good horse for cheap.

    Ooh you live in NY? Sweet...I can help you find a good horse if you want if you want me to, I'd LOVE to do it.
    I was lucky to find my perfect match in Janurary and know of some really good horses for sale. It depends on your budget and what exactly you are looking for.

    (If you want me to help we can either do it here, through Private messages, or though AIM if you have it...or yahoo IM)

    Just have to warn you guys my parents are still not ok with me getting one, but i'm hoping if I actually find one that would be good for me and if I work my *** off to get money to pay for it then they will say ok. I am looking for a horse that I can learn from and one that will not kill me along the way. I know I shouldn't be concerned about looks, but I can't really help it, I love grey TB's. But any Tb would be good. One that is min of 15 hands, 15 hands is good. One that would be good for a first time owner, so maybe a little older, but not too old.

    As far as money, cheaper would be good, but with rescues none of them seem too much. My parents aren't so much concerned with the up front cost, but the monthly boarding, vet bills, farrier... but I still need a cheaper horse. Plus, I love animals, I have over 40 at my house now (when people hear this they think it's weird and gross, but they are all kept very clean and all are very healthy :) ) and to adopt an animal would be way better than buying it, just becuase there are so many horses and so many that need homes. So it's partially for that reason too.

    Ooh yeah, almost forgot, I live in upstate.

    Did you look at the link? I am a sucker for dapple or flea bitten grey TBs.

    so your looking for a TB, perferably greys, and one that jumps. I do know of a TB, but he's bay and can't be jumped (some type of leg problem...don't know what).

    If you don't want to tell me that town you live in, could you mention a town close to you? That way I can see what's in your area.

    I do know of some nice paints for sale...if you are interested...let me know if you are...I'll be right back though...got to drive my mom somewhere....I'll be back in maybe 1 hour

    I tried an Advanced Search with most info given so here's some you might like taking a look at. I don't know what prices you are willing to pay so I think these prices are all-around. Good luck!

    Let me know how it goes!

    Here are some TBs that I found. Some may be grey, some aren't. I did 15 minutes away from my zip code (I'm in the zip code of 12065). If it's too far away let me know and I'll change the zip codes I put in while searching

    http://horsetopia.horse-for-sale.org...fieds/ad277831
    http://www.equinenow.com/horse-ad-60789

    That's all I found at the moment.
    I'm attaching the link of the place that I bought my horse from. There is a grey mare....she's a draft/TB/Paint cross. But she's really expensive.

    (The last one is the TB that they are selling...and the only one that says sold is my boy )

    I'll continue to look and see what I can find

    Oh, just remembered one. There is a young horse (I believe 6-7 years old). She's a Belgian/TB cross. She's dun colored, not grey like you wanted though.
    She is for sale at the stables where I board my horse. I'm not sure too much about her for her owner is never around (they are selling due to the owner and her daughter lost interest).

    She is around 15 hands, stocky built. Dunish colored, with golden mane and tail. A strip on her face and I believe one or two socks.
    Don't know anything about her health wise. I've never heard of her being sick, colicing, or foundered, but I'm not sure.

    She is barefooted...doesn't seen shoes.
    Kinda wild only because the owner hasn't ridden her in months...if she was ridden often she would be fine. The girl who rides her is 12 I believe, so I think you'd be able to handle her.

    I have pictures of her somewhere if you are interested in her

    Omg, that one for 12k is looks amazing! It's nice to dream :)
    I liked the first link, I have a show at the barn this weekend that I want to go and take a look at some horses in the area and see how this one horse does in shows. My zip is 14618 so you are welcome to look, my email is otis07_@hotmail.com, I don't do aol or aim or whatever, but you are welcome to pm me either if you find anything. Thanks!
