So…. I have 400 buckeroos available to spend on my next super-star dressage partner!!!
You’re so jealous, aren’t you?
Which massively talented dressage prospect should I buy with all this money?!?
Gosh, the possibilities are endless.
I’m hoping after we file taxes that I’ll have around $1,500 – 2,500 to use toward a new horse. Hopefully.
I tried adopting a TB from New Vocations but was denied. Their fencing requirements are not met by a large majority of the boarding facilities around me, and I’m not paying to replace all their fencing in order to adopt a horse. So that’s out. Canter is out too.
I will never have enough money to touch anything with the word ‘warmblood’ in its lineage. I can’t find much around here that has the basic freedom of movement that you’d want in a dressage horse. The ones that do are beyond my price range. I’ve been denied by the TB adoption agencies. And I’m not having any luck getting someone to sponsor me by buying me a dressage bred prospect. ha ha
I’m kind of scared about buying a new horse. What if I pick wrong? What if I end up with something crazy? My whole situation with a trainer who is out of state all winter only works if I have a horse I can control. If I run into issues in the winter, then I’m screwed. But buying horses is like anything in life. Pick two: Cheap, great mover, sane.
You can’t have all three.
Kind of moot at the moment anyway.
