What area are you in? I'm just curious about the pricing differences in different areas.

I live in Florida and here, a novice horse can go for 20,000. My friend sold her dead broke, very VERY experienced and accomplished mare, who is VERY forgiving and the ultimate youth, amateur, or novice horse for 25,000, which was supposedly "cheap" for her.

My other friend, bought her extremely accomplished made 17.1 hand babysitter with over 1,000 AQHA points for 45 grand (hasn't won any huge titles like the Congress or World show, but multiple all arounds, performance champs etc.) and I mean, this horse, is a robot. Does everything automatically, beautiful jump, nice and thick, just a lovely horse. He was originally 65 grand, but they lowered it to 45 because of the economy.

I think it's so interesting to see the price differences in different areas!

My old mare, we were asking 12,500 for her, and got 10,000.
She was about 15.3, no lead change (did the half change thing.. just couldn't ever get them right!), very few points and mostly novice points, cow horse bloodlines, not a big stride, etc. However, she was a perfect little kid horse. Never ever spooked, very good natured, she was grey and pretty with dark legs, was pretty okay on the flat, never refused a jump, you could do anything with this mare. We bought her for 5,500 and she didn't really improve much for the year I had her. Anyone could ride this mare, my friend jumped her 3'6 bareback in a halter and leadrope! Sadly, the lady who bought her said she was "a mareish cow and crazy" when the day we sold her and loaded her on the trailer, she was being ridden by 4 year old kids bareback in a birthday party. I think now she's a broodmare being bred to a big time HUS horse!

EDIT: Seriously, your horse is my new favorite AQHA gelding.


He could easily sell for 60K+.
He reminds me a lot of my own Appendix Quarter Horse, they are both gentle giants (Even though my boy is only 16.3, he is considered a HUGE horse in my area where most horses stand 14.2-15.3 hands), they were both green when we bought them, I was also going to name my boy Moose, but I ended up naming him Waylon.

He is a very handsome boy and am glad to hear you have gone so far with him. :) Really, am quite jealous.

I bought Whale early this Summer he had been started late as a 4 year old (He wasn't even halter broke at 3 :o ) I began getting some experience under his belt and took him to 6 open shows and 3 AQHA shows over the Summer (Not a busy year at all...), I was astounded when trainers were asking about him and they offered to buy him for 20-35K, I had only had him for less then a year and bought him for 4K. I think those trainers were on crack or something, haha. I chose not to sell him because I had been looking for a Hunter horse for 3 years and I wan't ready to sell him. Am going to start jumping him in the next year or two, I have no jumping experience, but I guess that's why there are trainers. :)

Wow! That's so amazing!! And thank you so much(:

They move really similar! Yours has a prettier trot than mine, but he has a nice lope!! I bet he'll be really gorgeous over fences!! Where do you show? Who do you train with? You can PM me if you want with those answers.

But I bought mine for 6,500, which in my opinion, was a complete rip off since he did absolutely nothing and was insane! I can't believe we have so much in common!!!

Thanks so much for the compliments! (:

Haha, when I bought Waylon I thought I was getting a heck of a deal.
We do have a lot in common.

U are off your nut to turn down 45 or 65 grand. I wud of thought if you were offer that kind of money truthfully by people seriously wanting to buy and not just saying you could get that. Why didnt they wait for him if she is so good surly they can't be many like her enough to pay that much?? (oh and sorry for the capital letters it was just ment to be the first sentance forgot to turn it off.) x

He is one gorgeous boy. I think he could be worth quite a lot to someone, though personally I would never buy a horse for more than $15k. I'd rather buy a nice green horse, or even baby, for cheaper and train them up myself ;] I'm also not into the hunter or AQHA world though. I don't think turning down those offers was ridiculous. If it wasn't the right time, it wasn't the right time. Besides, if you were offered that then, imagine how much you could be offered when he has even more training on him. Right now I am horseless, but I wouldn't have sold my old guy if I had been offered $100,000 for him. I was too emotionally attached, and I would have felt incredible shallow for the rest of my life for giving him up that easily.
