    Default How hard is it to find....

    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?



    Thanks in advance

    If you have the check book, not hard at all but you are looking at 6 figures and up most likely

    Like mew said, easy to find if you have to bank account to back it up. You are looking at 6 figures I imagine

    I was going to say "not hard at all if you open the checkbook"

    Deep pockets and good connections can find you anything!

    Easy Pesy Lemon Squeesie. Open up that bank account and you'll find one. 6 Figures easy even in this market. Look for trainers in the area that have these connections and they can find you one.

    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

    and not only that -- you have to think of the upkeep of said horse to stay at the top
    you have to have support and back up and teamof people
    6 figures is minium for a good horse thats proven

    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
    Oldenburgs do it better
