I find that hard to believe. In my area there are horses going for 350- 500 for unbroke unregistered stock. I just sold a grade gelding that was broken to saddle for 2500 with very little marketing. In fact I was not intending to sell this one until he was better trained.
That mare will bring a decent price in any area. Shalom

Here in my area tops would be 800.... Horse market has dropped a lot here. Compleatly broke, registered, with good lines, and showing well are going for 3000. I paid 15,500 for my registered gelding at six months old, halter broke. And that was it. I couldn't get 600 for him now, unless someone wanted a barrel mount. And even then, maybe 1000. No one will pay *shrugs* I'll ask a friend of mine if I can post the add of a NICE roan quarter mare she just bought for 1000. That should have been worth a lot more

I did not think the market was that bad in Michigan.
A neighbor sold a mare that was 22, had not been trimmed or ridden in 10 years at a public auction and got 390. IMO probably her price was 39 cents per pound. Shalom

It's not. I did see a nice Arabian for sale for $3200 that has show experience, but owner is in college and looking to sell quick.

The other horses in my area are averaging $1200, and the quality is substantially less then this filly.

A backyard bred, thin, no vet/farrier care unbroke/Un-worked-with horse 6 years of age and under are priced at $650-$800 on craigslist.

Minis are going for $450.

Around here, she'd likely have a tag of anywhere from $1200-$2000, depending on the time of year. Probably $2500 if she weren't an Appy...they don't seem to be real popular in my particular area.

Likes others have said, the horse market may be crap but there's always folks looking, and willing to pay, for a good one.

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: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

In the deep south you could sell her for around 800-1000. I haven't looked at prices elsewhere, so I'm surprised to see them so much higher.

In my area, if you marketed her right, you could probably sell her for $5000. Appaloosas, especially young, quality appy mares, seem to go for quite a bit more than most other breeds.

She's stunning, and I wish I was closer!
