Why shop for your horse in the USA? (copied from a forum)
At today’s exchange rate: $50,000 US = 32,338 Euros $75,000 US = 48,407 Euros
If you are looking at paying 32,000 Euros for the horse, it is probably priced BY ITS OWNER at 15,000E – 25,000E, with commissions accounting for the rest. If you are lucky and have very good contacts and a good agent, you could probably find a “decent” 7-8 year old in that price range.
If you are willing to pay 50,000E for the horse, it is probably priced BY ITS OWNER at 25,000E – 35,000E. That would get you something a bit fancier, or something with a solid M show record, or something not as experienced but with an AA temperament and still enough talent to make FEI.
... Just remember that importation to NY plus USDA quarantine is running about $7000 now.
