    A good, solid, consistant barrel horse can make that kinda money back for a good rider. If she's sound and a safe quick ride...she would be worth the cash.

    I went to a horse sale and saw a roping horse no-sale at 15,000. Good consistent performance horses are very valuable.

    I cannot fathom that amount of money for a horse (well, not unless it is one of the very rare breeds); that could be because I don't compete with them I guess.

    If you were winning several hundred dollars every weekend then it wouldn't seem too much money. Price your horse at $10,000 and see how many calls you get.

    Even a good solid proven prospect should be able to fetch 3-4K easily.

    I fully believe that she could be worth that much to the right person (I have been looking around a couple of different sites at other barrel horses for sale... Wow). I'm not sure I'm wanting to sell her though; my little girl loves her, and I'm pretty fond of her myself. If you're on the ground, she's a doll, it's just trying to ride her that causes issues. I guess if that is what she really likes and wants to do, it isn't fair for me to completely take her out of it, but I'd like to think there could be a happy medium.

    On one hand, I agree with Kevin and Cori, that she would likely make someone a very nice barrel horse and make you a very pretty penny. But if you are determined to keep her, I like the idea of some down time and then bringing her back up from the start. Even after you get back into the saddle, do nothing but slow work; walk, jog, controlled lope and all of it on a loose rein. We already know she's good at fast work so that's not what needs fixed, it's her slow work that's lacking.
