I found a super cute OTTB that’s at a low price. He’s been restarted, but took the winter off. I’ve seen a recent video, he’s super cute. A friend of mine knows the horse and says the owner is getting strapped for cash and wants the horse off her payroll.
I know I’m semi-capable. My current (and forever) horse is off the track. He had some post track rides on him but not many. He’s a lovely horse and has taught me so much regarding bringing a greener horse up to a consistent, fun ride.
I’ve been hit with the “project” bug. I don’t want to make money, don’t even care if I break even - just looking for a new challenge. I have enough dispensable income that I’m not worried about having two on my horse budget.
I think I need to be talked out of this… husband and I are trying to have a baby and it’s just not happening. I feel like I’m looking for a project to keep me busy. Is this a terrible idea? You can tell me it’s a bad idea
When did you decide to take on a project horse. Did you regret it?
