    Default Is $10,000 a realistic price for what I'm looking for?

    I will be on the market for a new horse soon, I figured my budget will be about $10,000. I'm looking for a relatively safe horse though I don't mind a bit of liveliness and spunk. A horse that is comfortable at the 2'6-2'9 level but be capable to move up higher if it has the training put into it. It does not have to be a super fancy mover or jumper as I will only be doing some local schooling shows maybe 4 or 5 times a year (if at all). It will be more for my pleasure as well as to improve my riding and training skills. Possibly one day resell if I find a real diamond in the rough that I manage to train to a much higher level.

    Will I be able to find something like this within my budget? Or is what I'm looking for way out of budget?

    Absolutely seems realistic, but do not expect a good mover or something that would win on the AAs though you certainly might find something that could clean up in the locals with a good round.

    Easily. Around here you can find those commonly for around 5k or less.

    around here you can find a horse like that for generally around 6k, so 10k should definitely help you find what you're looking for!! Good luck!
