Hey Spyder-

Got the info from the seller- She scored red preferred with a 71% score. Explain this to me in english lol...good, bad...in between? She said she only worked with her for 2 weeks prior to the inspection. Said that she was marked AWS on the right hip but it has since faded.

15.2 5 yr old QH gelding. Trained training level, knows a bit of 1st level...$2500 obo


What do yall think...him or the cream mare? He has alot more training under his belt...he is obviously being ridden WAY behind the vertical, but I think it's more the rider than him.

Ok so at least the mare is a legitamate AWS inspected mare and the term warmblood is correct by registration.

The gelding in the video...I have seen that video before and just wasn't impressed. I KNOW there is better out there for less money so it is a matter of looking and offering the better ones less money than they are asking.

In todays market more and more sellers are taking less.

Hey Spyder,

so let's say one wants to spend 2000 dollars on a horse. What is the highest written price one could look at and talk them down to the wanted price? Just a rough estimate, I know it depends.

In the end it depends on how desperate the seller is but the longer the horse is out there the easier it gets. Also at this time of the year not many want to keep the horse through the winter.

I would if the horse were right made a $2,000.00 offer on any horse advertised at $3,000.00 to $4,000.00. Every horse will have a "mark down feature"...something the buyer can use to get the horse price lowered...you just have to know what and be willing to make an offer and walk away.

hmmm...maybe I should raise my search values then? I'm just afraid of making someone mad- but the only thing they can say is no.

Katie....is this horse Crosby's...something or another? If so, she looks like a horse i Have seen before. I am in Texas and have personally seen this horse.= (if it's the Crosby one) She has been for sale for some time. ALthough she is beautiful, she has NO training what so ever, They are trying to sell this horse for too mcuh with virtually no training. Her ground manners are horrible as well as trying to ride her. She is just green broke if that ( I actually think she's not broke to ride at all!). If this is not the horse you are talking about ignore this post! She just looks very similar to the one I saw! Let me know...I have more info, about her!

I am owned by:
Reign- 6 yo Rocky Mountain gelding and Turista- 6 yo Paso Fino gelding...the loves of my life!
