I am hoping the purchase of a second horse will happen next year. I have narrowed down my list. I am very picky, however my budget is not huge so I will look at horses that aren't "perfect". The horse does not need show expeirence. I am fine with a cribber. Doesn't need to be in shape. Easy or hard keeper.
I am also looking at horses in three different categories.
1. B circuit type Arab or preferably a cross. Hunter pleasure trained with the potential to do low level hunter hack.
2. AQHA (or double reg. APHA) show horse for HUS, WP, trail, HMS, HSE. Slow legged. Doesn't not need show expeirence.
3. Derby aged Reiner that has no less then 120 days. Low headed. Cute turner, a big sea parting stop is not nessacary. It would be a plus if the horse is Hollywood bred.
Id ask my boss who is the Arab queen in these parts but if I do she will find me a new horse tomorrow.
What should I be looking to pay for these types of horses? I'm looking in western Canada if it makes a difference.
