An equitation horse with a proven record in the 3'6" ring? I am not talking one that has been in a few 3'6" classes but one that has gone to say maclay regionals or even finals, or usef medal finals. Also what is the price range these horses fall under?
The posts above are so accurate - an experienced, finals quality horse with no "holes" are findable but extremely pricy (six figures easy).... A better question is how easy is it to find an experienced 3'6" eq horse that will go around the finals and is affordable (for most people) - that is very difficult
I would agree, however the original post said nothing about doing fabulously at these finals. A big eq horse that is good at the 3'6 and can get you to finals is a bit pricy, but not quite six figures. The ones that do well at finals, now that's where it starts to get up there price-wise
