If you want to pay $7500 for a $10,000 horse, dont act overly intrested in the horse. If I have learned ANYTHING about buying horses it's to make the seller think you won't buy if the price is higher than you want to pay. If they say they won't lower it, you either pay what they want, or go look at other horses. I had to learn that skill because I used to go to buy a horse, and could see so much potential going to waste if I DIDN'T buy it I would get upset, and the seller could tell and would actually make the price higher. Don't get emotional if they won't lower it. Good luck.
