Around here, a horse like that, proven 1D-2D who is sane and sound, can be roped off of, and is suitable for an advanced child rider would easily be worth $8K to $10K, probably more.

Just browsing my local sale ads: Keep in mind that these are just the listed prices and the horse may or may not sell for that price

6 year old gelding, similar temperament, 3D times = $8000

13 year old appendix gelding, slightly hotter temperament, 1D-2D times locally, 3D-4D times against really tough horses = $10000

Gelding, unknown age, breakaway/heading/heeling/barrel/pole horse, 3D and 4D barrel times, kid/beginner safe = $8500

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Time would have been an 18.0 and they would have gone home with the 1d buckle in the youth

Where I am there is a pretty high demand for good horses right now. I agree with CLaPorte, easily $13-17,000. Especially if he is quiet at the gate, has multiple skills (rope, trail, and barrels), and is still in his prime age-wise.

American by birth. Cowgirl by the grace of God. And I wouldn't have it any other way.

There is a high demand in the barrel horse world for good solid horses that haven't had their legs ran off. Keeping in mind he is so very young yet too. Many barrel horses don't hit their prime until 8-14. That's where you see the high priced horses.
