Phew. The Hanoverian X is advertised as quiet for kids, not trained fully, just a kiddie-level hunter. In Florida there's more emphasis on training... people really mark down/up horses for one or two levels (don't get me started on how many ribbons the horse has...). My absolute sweetheart, honest, police-trained, Eventing, all-rounder mount was sold to a trainer at 2k in a loafing condition, and I bought her some years later for 2k as a vice-free 3'6" show jumper. Doesn't look too bad either, imo. This mare loads into a trailer like it's nothing. She goes ANYWHERE, I'd say a horse is worth 10k just for that! A horse that is sensitive yet forgives is really hard to come by. Every horse is worth some cash, all of them are worth a place in our hearts.
