I wanted to ask people out there how much they (or there parents) bought there horses for.........Since you can't judge a great horse and say ohhh that horse must be expensive when maybe the owner bought them for 1,500. Just curious.....

My first horse was $1500, we ended up giving him away 8 months later because he was way too much horse for me. (At one point he bucked my coach off and she broke her collar bone).
I am now looking at a pony that's for sale for $4500, the owners are open to a payment plan though - thank goodness.

You can't say that $1500 isn't alot of money for a horse, because it could be. Depending on when (now that's good money for a horse, 4 years ago, not so much) and what ($1500 can get you a pretty well papered weanling)

I paid $300 for my least expensive horse (he was a AQHA weanling, who was sick and lame, after thousands of dollars in vet bills we lost him) and $3000 for my most expensive (My two year old filly, who was unbroke, out of NRHA money earner, AQHA point earner stallion and proven mare)

My first horse had a sale price of $35,000. Through negotiating, he was brought down to $32,000 and he was purchased. When he passed this spring, the life insurance company gave us back $35,000 because that was his estimated financial value before his death.

My current horse had a sale price of $40,000, but with negotiation (everybody should try to negotiate price, even if the sale is reasonable why pay extra if the price could be lowered) he was brought down to $38,000 and he was purchased. For both of my horses a 10% (I am fairly certain that it was 10% but I could be wrong) reservation fee was put on the horse so he could not be purchased by another person before he had a vet check and the decision to purchase the horse was made.
