I can only value a horse by my buying area. Since you know your area well and he is the correct price for what he is, I hope it works for you! He certainly is a good looking guy.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Look in my barn at Bonnie. 14 years old, been there and done that. She has been a brood mare, winner in local WP classes, and the best trail horse I've owned in a lot of years. Nothing bothers her. I paid well under $1,000 for her this past spring.
Are these horses registered, trained and breed show material? That is what I was getting at in my saying he's worth $3K because he IS breed show material, he has a chance to earn points which (if he's in the Breeders Trust) means money earned....and a check at the end of the year. There is a difference between local and breed show material.

As being registered and trained - that automatically makes her breed showable. I'm not talking grade horses. I said registered and trained. His price in what I consider my area, which includes much of the East Coast, is high - unless he has points and a strong show record. The horse in question is not saying that it's "show" record is of any consequence - just potential.

I'm on the East Coast as well, New England to be exact....and APHA horses in my area with this color and current level of training are going for this price. APHA show horses with points and records are still selling for twice that.

Unfortunately, around here, $1500 is not going to buy a horse that my daughter can ride now that has any training. I wish though! I looked at another horse this week that hasn't been ridden in several month, is completely out of shape, and was older, and her asking price was $3500. I'd like to get his price down some, but I'm not counting on it.

^and it sounds like to me that your daughter is serious and wants to move up in the show world and in horse flesh. That does take money and spending a little more on a horse, and quite frankly...those horses are worth their price tag. I hope it works out for you....keep me posted!

hey iridehorses where are you from, if you don't mind me asking?
I only ask this because I notice your location states SC but that you stated east coast.
If it is SC then I would love to move up there, I would love to be able to find horses of that caliber in my area.
Seeing as I live in GA (right under SC) it would not be that far of a move for me.
I know in my area a WP or EP horse, just for a reg. prospect, rang from 2,000 - 5,000.
Same price rang for most reg. barrel prospects, heck the cheapest prospect that was really "breed" to run down my way that looked worth anything at all was 4,500.

Hey,I know you too! Sidney is coming 17 now but still kicking it in AQHA WP and earning points. I just bought a filly by My FInal Notice from Texas. She'll be next WP horse, but I will never sell Sid. How's it going with your herd????
