He's got sooooo much potential. :) It's awesome you guys have come so far! Congrats, he looks like a very special horse. :)

Around here, AQHA shows aren't super big. It's more hunter/jumper stuff but he looks lovely over fences so I could see him going from around 20k - 30k with the right trainer helping you out. :)

I would have taken the 65k and run. I'm not sure what you could sell him for as an AQHA horse, but I don't think he looks like the kind of horse that is in demand in the USEF hunters, though I don't know your area. In my area a very nice Quarter horse will run you anywhere from $10,000 to 30,000, but warmbloods and even thoroughbreds are definitely preferred.

Because of how this horse jumps with his knees I wouldn't consider him a top hunter prospect, but possible an equitation mount. Or a children's or A/A hunter.

I wouldn't consider him an A rated hunter, I've only done one show and did fairly well. He's just proven in the aqha circuit(:

Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.

Personally, I wouldn't pay 65 grand for a horse, either, but...I can see where some people would want to pay that for him. He is a well accomplished horse with a very gentle, people pleasing personality. Kid horses are worth their weight in gold, IMO. But, if he still has his "big horse moments", he doesn't sound too trustworthy, so just basing off of what I've read so far and from what I've seen, I wouldn't value him at more than 12k. But, if he's the right horse for someone, they'll pay whatever it takes to get him off your hands lol. Good luck with him, by the way.

Hard to say, all horses are worth exactly the amount willingly offered by the highest bidder.

If you were offered $65,000 at one time then at THAT time and to THAT person he was worth $65,000. Personally I would have taken the money, handed them the reins and not looked back.

In my opinion he is worth....ummm....to put it simply, ahelluvalot. More than I will ever spend on one horse. He is a beautiful boy.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Thank you(:
And at the time that we were offered that much, it was right before my first world show, and we really wanted to go.
And your right, it's however much people would want to spend on him. And same here, I wouldn't ever spend a lot of money on a horse, especially at this time in this economy. We bought him as a super green horse for around 6,000$. Which, I think we got ripped off because he was a complete lunatic!

By big horse moments, I mean being fresh if he hasn't been ridden in 6+ days and getting strong to fences, but that's when he's not ridden for a long period of time, which in MHO, any horse can be like that.(:

You are right to some extent. Any horse "can" be like that, but whether they are fully trustworthy or not is a different story. My mare hadn't been ridden for 6+MONTHS when I came back home from living in Ohio. However, she wasn't fresh, she was the same as when I left. Still just as bombproof broke and just as gentle as ever. The fact that you say that he was a lunatic when you got him, doesn't really improve his value to me, much. If he was a lunatic then, he still could be a ticking time bomb, and I wouldn't buy him based off the information given. But, if he's right for you, and he's a well accomplished show horse, then keep at it! But, I just truly don't think that he's a true kid horse if he gets fresh when he isn't ridden consistently. So, that does bring his value down a bit from my perspective, but it may not for someone else. Its all about what someone wants and what they're willing to pay.
