    Default Ok, I'm $425,000 short of buying my dream horse, drool, drool, drool

    I was looking at schoolmasters, when I came across this horse. I'm in love. If I could win the lottery, then I would happily pay the 400,000 Euros they are asking for him and play with my new horsie. I know that he is not perfect (changes and piaffe could improve), but who cares ...

    I even like his color

    BTW, his rider has an amazing seat

    Lovely! Well, if I win the lottery first I'm snatching himup - but I'll let you sit on him! :> LOL! FL is now a powerball state so the odds are something crazy like 1 in 6 million?!

    Great fluid movement!

    I'd lend you the $$$,but I'm alittle short too.
    Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

    1 in 6 million? Nope. Sorry, it's much higher then that. Try 1 in 195,249,084 of winning the jackpot. It's 1 in 5,138,133 of winning a second prize.

    Thought this was going to be a joke but wow, lovely. He didn't look heavy to ride and just so fluid. A few slight issues, but hey who's perfect. Would like a non stallion version, please.

    Hey Elegante E, for half a million bucks you can make him anything you want!! Hell you could dress him up in a tutu and call him Sally.

    Yes he is lovely - BUT he's not good enough to be in contention for International prizes. Also in a couple of years he will have the lost the few dapples he has left and be just a plain grey. So he won't be anything like as eyecatching.

    probably good enough to get my bronze medal, don't you think

    I still like him even if he would not win the olympics or the WEG, I'm not 'olympic material' as a rider either

    Just a plain grey? In a sea of plain dark bay dressage horses? They still stand out! To the OP - maybe if everyone in your town/city can send you $1, things might work out! To the person posting the dismal lottery odds: my philosophy is that everyone who won did not think that they would win because the odds are dismal. *Someone* has to win! I like to play occasionally and I feel that $2 worth of tickets is well worth the entertainment of daydreaming for a few days about what I'd do if I won.

    He is a beauty and I totally feel your "must have" mode kicking in. I have the same thought when I see horses like that. Makes me get butterflies in the tummy.

    I didn't say nobody should play because the odds are dismal. I also play the lottery. I was just correcting the poster on the odds since she was off by quite a bit.

    Ooops, sorry if I came off snarky! I hate to see actual facts when they get in the way of my personal daydreams! I'm going to make a future Olympic team just like the dentist who won Olympic eventing in Bejing! Really, I am!

    OMG, too funny!

    If I paid that much money for a horse, I'D be the one wearing the tutu and tiara in the show ring and everyone would be calling me Nutterbunny!
