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.
Thank you for understanding! I really appreciate the nice comments(:

Here's some video's of him:
YouTube - Equitation Over fences 2.5.11
^^ We won that class out of 11 other horses

YouTube - Uploaded From FlipShare iPhone.MOV
^^the not-so-good working hunter course.. Yes, I know I got waay too impatient to a couple fences, luckily, he saves me (lol) We did manage to get 3rd out of 11

YouTube - Uploaded From FlipShare iPhone.MOV
^^Jumpers.. We didn't win, but we did have a great time!

I'll post some more video's soon.. And I posted these videos so you can see him, not for a critique(: Thanks!

JustJump, may I ask why you keep bumping this thread up? Most of us have already waxed lyrical about the attributes of your horse. Yes he is lovely, yes you are a lucky owner. But there is only so many times this can be said and only so many ways it can be said.

Do you really want to know what he is worth or do you just want everyone to keep saying he is worth a lot?

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

Not at all, I've just seen more threads with much more posts and comments. I just like to see what people think.

He is a nice jumping horse for sure. Remember to have non jumping outings with him as he is such a nice boy! Probably not a world class jumper (like Olympic level) but he makes a 3 foot course look like caveletti.

You have gone far with this horse. I would have taken the $65k because they are still making some good horses. That being said, that is ME not YOU.

Nice horse, nicely ridden. Well balanced and well trained. Nice quiet lead changes and knows his job. Wins and the Congress thing is huge.

Good for you.

Thanks so much! He's more of an eq horse, it's his best class! Jumpers is something my trainer makes me do to get my confidence up and get him more flexible and broke. It just so happened that he was pretty decent at it! Thanks for the compliment(:!!

Is he sound? Not to be offensive, but most of the top AQHA horses aren't. And soundness, at least for me, has a HUGE influence on how much I'm paying for a horse. Granted he'd vet out, he'd probably fetch around 35 - 40k over here in CT, which has a relatively large QH circuit.

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.
