Usually an investment horse is hand-picked by a rider that the investor deals with or not in some cases, the investor simply brings the rider a horse they own/bred to evaluate for the purposes of mutual profit when the horse is later sold.
I think the investment horse is an illusion, like the Yeti, Bigfoot or the Loch Ness monster. Everyone has heard of them but no one has actually seen one…
I disagree with you EdwardLever, I think the best investments are ponies for lease, as they tend to last forever, have long careers. If you get a good one that will reliably pack a kid and is fancy, it's worth its weight in gold, and then some, since it will bring in a nice lease every year for maybe 10 years..
No way! First yachts and now horses. Dude, really? Next week what’s it gonna be? Bananas !
Listen, if you don’t want to discuss these forms of investment then don’t do it! Nobody asked for such a negative opinion, you’re not bringing anything into the conversation.
If I were getting into horse investments, it would likely be this route- flipping low end European jumpers which already have shown experience in Europe into mid-to-high range hunter/eq horses, but I don't know how conducive the current conditions are for doing this.
I want some ideas on this topic because my friend has been offered to invest in a horse and stables like the whole thing does anyone know about this?
Agreed, although you should tell your friend to check them out like go there and have a look. Are they in the UK or abroad?
They're actually in Ireland
Ireland are well known for being excellent breeders and having the best quality stables. You friend should still make the trip though
Would you say it would be a good idea?
I'm not here to give everyone advice but in my opinion if you went over, checked it out and it looked good then why not
Yes as long as it checks out ok then Ireland are known to be good
Sorry but have you any idea how inhumane horse breeding, trialing and racing is?????How can you perpetuate such abominable practices???
Pardon??? This is an investment forum the last time I looked not an animal rights forum I suggest you go and whitter on in one of those
Can we stay on topic please.
Thank you both Edi and Rockette for your input. @Kungfumassive, go and eat a burger as you're probably vegan too.
Yes it's quite a mainstream thing to do and if the stables are good qualitty with good results you could do far worse
