The BLM has an auction in Ithaca NY in July.
Hereís the schedule: https://www.blm.gov/programs/wild-ho...d-sales/events
Iíve trained 3 from scratch for trail riding; all great horses. The smallest 14.2. Domesticís can be harder, IMHO. The most recent a 15.3 2005 foal (see pic).
It takes a lot of work, perseverance and the humility to ask for help when you need it. Thereís a wealth of information out there now on youtube, rfdtv, cowboy channel as well as ebay dvdís that werenít available 15 yrs ago. Itís definitely a commitment, too. Good luck!
