With good lines and confo as good as what she's got (not perfect, but good), a good mind, and with a good start under saddle, in a good market, I can see getting $2500-$3000 for her.

Does she show any natural inclination for any particular discipline? That can effect her price as well.

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:

If she was properly advertised in my area, she could go for $4,000. Appy's are kind of a big deal around here and if her bloodlines are decent she'd be a prospect for the people who travel for breed shows.
I personally don't particularly love appys but she's quite the looker. Sounds like she has loads of potential. A young horse with a good mind is hard enough to find but when she's got looks as well that should add some serious value.

That is a very nice mare. I like her and am not a big fan of Appys.
Anyone would be proud to own that mare. The one that is prompting this sale must be really nice.
If she had more than 10 rides I would say 2500-3000. I hope you get it too. Shalom

thanks for all the replies here is her pedigree:
Docs Sonata Dream Appaloosa

and this was her yesterday, after having not been ridden in 4 months, with only 10ish (might be less) rides on her.

Oh, and just for the curious, this is the mare that will replace her. Mainly I have made this decision because this mare is older and ready for a season of hard riding, plus she is a lot more challenging to ride, which keeps me more engaged and learning as a rider. Pickles is so sweet and easy.

New mare is a step back in conformation from Pickles IMO, but not sure that you want a critique on her?

Hope you find the perfect home for Miss Pickles - she is a really cute and nice looking girl.

nope, don't need a critique. Honestly, I click with this mare, and she is quicker and much more challenging than pickles. At this stage in the game, I am young and up for a challenge, and I want to keep improving my riding abilities. A sweet, mellow horse like pickles would be better appreciated in the hands of someone else.

That said, I like her so much that if this new mare hadn't come along and I just 'clicked' with her(doesn't happen often), I would have kept her. I think I have been very privileged to own her, and whoever ends up with her(I will be picky with buyers) will be very happy with her.

In my area the horse market is pretty bad still. You might get $250 for her by me. So don't come to Western Michigan looking to sell lol

Both mares are lovely. What a hard decision to make. IMO I would list Pickles around $2,000. In my area, I'd be lucky to get that but your area might be different.
