Thanks again! I feel this will be a super long shopping experience... Lol

The best thing is most of the horses I do see for sale have videos... which is cool!

And of course I want a sound horse, but I realize for one what may not be sound for showing every weekend at the top levels could stay sound for what I need... and two if my perfect horse requires some minor maintenance it wont be a deal breaker.

I just want something that I can hop on and have some fun learning and riding again. That horse will be worth its weight in gold to me.
I've started horses, and put lots of miles on horses, but my lessons always focused more on training and less on how I was riding. I learned there is only so much I can learn riding green horses with no pedigree all the time... I feel I need something of better quality both in breeding and training in order to advance... I hope I am right!


...and then after riding that horse for a few years I'm sure I'll be saying the same thing... I really need a better quality horse in breeding and training in order to advance... then it will be stepping up to the 20k + horses... Geeze lol

Yes, you will, in no time. My BFF has a lovely Shining Spark mare who, after 3 years, she realized would not take her to the non-pro, so she just upgraded to a $20K horse. She now has her mare for sale, but I think she is asking slightly more than you want to go. Mare also needs to be tuned up, which will happen in the next couple of weeks. If you want to know more about her, let me know. She is a lovely mare, and my friend is really torn about selling her. She may take less is she doesn't go get tuned up, and if she doesn't have to pay commission. She is totally sound and has been trail ridden, etc. She is now 6, I believe. Pretty buckskin.

Most of the horses I seen seem to like are priced higher than my 10k limit...

.... Do people take out loans for horses? I'm seriously thinking about it lol
I have the money to afford it of course, and even to show it... But that initial 20k investment is what's killing me... Haha
