Re: [RC] Buying and Selling Horses/Prices - Carolyn Burgess

How do Polo ponies figure into this? They go for big money and last I knew, they were a money sink just like we are, with enjoyment and competition being the only reward.

One other thing I haven't seen mentioned:
 
Grand Prix Jumping, Eventing, Dressage, Cutting, Reining, barrel racing, flat-track race horses...all have the potential of win lots of money.  There isn't the potential to win a $100,000 purse in an endurance race.  Therefore, the horses that can excel in these sports demand a higher price than an equally talented and well-bred endurance horse.
