    Your long term goals are compatible with your short term goals, but not exactly with your budget. You may want to consider horses with other "issues".

    One of the many things I like about where my horse stays is that I have two other horses to ride. My friend has two horses that aren't really sale horses but need to stay in some sort of riding...
