    WhiteTrashWarmblood, does the seller know you are putting her horse up for a price critique? I don't want to open the forum to any problems if the seller sees this thread.

    I agree 5k for an older trail horse is a lot. Even for a packer. I'm on the cheaper side so I'd say about 2k-2.5k. With this economy you can get a decent jumper jumping about 3' for 2-3k.

    Also any signs of arthritis in this horse yet? Does she have good teeth, any health problems?

    Edit: Sorry iridehorses. Didn't see your post till after.

    Yes, it's alright.
    I'm helping her sell the horse, and I am the one that actually put up the ad.
    She just told me what to put on it.

    If she's trying to sell her fast, then she may want to knock her down to $3000, just due to the market. However, if she wants her to get a good home and doesn't mind waiting around a while, she should hold at $5000. I would expect to pay that much for that bombproof of a horse, personally. In fact, I wouldn't look at a horse priced for less than that because it seems like something is wrong them. She is pretty and young, stick to $5000 but negotiable slightly I would say...?
    Of course my family is in the show horse world so $5000 is a cheap horse to me.... ha!

    Yes, I think she's asking too much. I paid $5500 for my APHA mare when she was 15, but she has a ton of APHA and pTHA points, spent years in breed shows and almost always placed top 3. Seeing as the mare you are talking about is essentially a pasture/trail horse, 5k is an awful lot, especially nowadays. I'd say $2000 or $2500 would be better.

    No, she has no signs of arthritis. She's completely healthy, no problems whatsoever.
    I convinced her owner to lower the price to $4500. We'll see what happens from there...
