My reining friends, can you check out this thread Buying a trained horse V investing money in training, and why buying can go wrong! I'm having all sorts of thoughts here.

I wish money wasn't an issue I would so buy that mare

What is the price on her, GH? She IS older for sure, has been a broodie.......hmmm. I am thinking like $7500? But then, don;t know your market.

I think if you have the means to buy her and take lessons with a trainer to teach you and keep her honest, do it!
Not only will you have a good solid horse to learn on but that will give you time to teach your up and comer. How can you teach a young horse if you don't know what a solid broke one feels like? It gives you something to work towards.
And she sounds like she gave you a bit of a confidence boost :)

You are close at $7500, more than I have ever paid, but I can see her value for sure. I would have to sell all of mine for their top dollar to get close to raising the cash. Then with this mare is the big question frankly would she benig enough for me? I was actually suprised when they offered me a ride.

Size wouldn't worry me at all. Look at some of the top reiners-they are far from lightweights, and they are guys, which tend to be heavier.

She gave me a HUGE confidence boost, I really couldn't believe that I could just get on a horse and ride, without worrying at all was just awesome.....I so need to find that again.
