I'm just curious to see how much people payed for their horse.

Also if you could post why you paid that much, like what does your horse/pony do? Ex : hunter,dressage.

Hahaha, yeaaaah.

I paid $1250 for Jack. He can't do anything special, and im probably about to sell him anyway.

Back to the point, post!

I paid $2000 for Skeeter (yes I know my profile name is spelt wrong..and i feel really stupid about it LOL)
He Is a 16.1 had throughbred. Had been trained as a 2 year old to race.. but was wayyyy to slow. He pretty much was just in a field untill I bought him at 6.
I bought him to do hunters/jumpers, he is also really nice on the flat

Being that I do not normally by my prospects it is more of mute point.

However this is one that I got as a 2yo.
Although I will not say what I paid I will post her pedigree and as you can see she was not cheap. Which did not include any training.

With Thanks Quarter Horse

Also keep in mind that this mare has paid for her self already. Good mares will more then pay for them selves over time.

I paid $40,000,000.00 for my horse. I had to sell a kidney and liver to afford that on the black market, but it was all worth it. I might sell an ovary? Maybe?

ridergirl- o_O Can't imagine paying that much! Wow! But Rena is absolutely stunning :) and extremely talented from what I understand. FEI Juniors, right?

MIEventer- you must have some deep pockets. And who needs an extra kidney anyway? (Actually I do...mine are diseased :S)

Anyway,

Ginisee 18 yr old OTTB- $1,000. She was 10 at the time and honestly wayyyy overpriced for her experience and condition. But I do not regret it at all. Best horse I have ever owned

Uma 7 yr old 3/4 TB 1/4 Shire (AWB)- free. She was a trade from my first horse to her when she was a 10 month old. So glad I traded! Even though I loved my old horse :D

Demi 7 yr old TB- free. She was a give-away on another forum. Greatest give-away ever!

I bought Scout for $500 with free tack last spring. He's an 8 year old pony cross, saddle-broke but not much more at the time. He needed a lot of TLC, and some "fetchin' up" in the training department, but he's a real sweetie and very willing to please, and has a tremendous work ethic. Conformationally, he's nothing really special, and he has his faults, but he does get lots of compliments for being cute! He's learning to be a good all around trail/pleasure horse with some concentration in classical dressage.Yeah... we'll see where we land there. :lol:

My current horse was originally selling for $40,000. My family talked them down and we bought him for $38,000. He does dressage and some jumping. Bought him as a 4yo 16.3 SWB gelding, now he is 5yo and 17+h.

My first horse was originally selling for $35,000 and we talked it down to $32,000. He was an eventing horse, but I don't event so I did dressage and jumping with him. Bought him as an 8yo KWPN DWB 16.1 gelding, when he died he was 10yo.

I bought Hershey for $6,000. He had been off the track for a year and a half and had been retrained for about three months, could jump small cross rails and was getting more under control on the flat. In todays market I could get a horse like him for much cheaper, but this was before the resession.

Havana was $500. Waay overpriced. She should have been free...(she was abused/neglected) Bought her from the abuser himself :/ She doesn't do anything, but I think she's trained to ride (don't know how well coming from there) She's 1/2 QH 1/2 Paint. But I just usually say Paint :p
Shelly...well I don't know. We've had her so long. Ever since I can remember. Probably not very much I imagine...

I bought Ice for 500 dollars plus the cost of care for a month while he stayed on the property and that amounted out to about 700 dollars. It was a very nice 700 dollars, I actually expected to have to do more to him since he was an OTTB than just fatten him up and refresh his breaks.
