you’re willing to spend. If you have that buffer you’ll have some room to maneuver if you find a horse you really love,” she adds. Tim feels the quality of horses available abroad makes


it worth the travel and import expenses. He also points out not every horse is worth importing; the quality of the horse should match the effort and expense required to fly it home. “I’d say you should have at least $20-25,000 to spend on a horse,” he says. “The good part is, if a horse doesn’t work out, it’s usually pretty easy to resell them in America. You may not make any money, but you’re not likely to have a huge loss, either.” For resale purposes, he estimates that it will cost around $40,000 in the purchase cost and import fees to have a horse on the market for $60,000 in the U.S. Even then, he says, “If I have, say, $40,000 into a horse, I need to make 30% when I resell the horse to make it worth my time. And I’m a professional—if you’re an amateur, you’ll need to pay for board and training, so this isn’t something you should go into if you’re trying to get rich.”

The shippers arrange everything, they’re pros at it—and at auctions it’s really easy, as they have a shipping company all set up right there. The next day the horses go to the stable of the shipping company, so it’s quite a quick process.” There are certainly plenty of horses available in the
