    I like the added accountability and think that it will encourage owner's, trainer's, grooms and riders to be more careful about who they associate with and the owners will have to take more interest...

    Greysfordays: I agree that most of the imported horses going into hunters will require some type of additional training for sure and although jumping higher in Europe doesn't necessarily better...

    Yes, many are renamed etc. etc. and their passports are often surprisingly "lost" as many buyers don't seem to know enough to even ask about registration papers etc.

    I agree that the budget is on the low side. Having recently been down this road, it will be difficult unless you are willing to go with something younger and unstarted or expect some issues (health...

    I just wanted to add that a few of the channels listed are selling their horses for as much or more (without import charges) than what one can buy domestically. Yes, they are beautiful horses but...

    I agree... the amount of horses to see in a few days is amazing and the good ones sell really fast!

    Roamingnome: I did the same thing after looking here for over a year. Found something that was pretty much 1/3 of what I would have spent in North America. For me it was purely $$ driven and worked...

    Okay in that case, the price of $7,000 - $7,500 is very good if it includes all the charges! I've never used that company or know anyone that has. I recently imported a mare from Germany and the...
