How much is he worth?

I know how much I think he's worth, but I'm curious to hear what everyone else thinks :) I've seen a lot of these threads popping up lately so I figured, why not?

Age: 11 (turned 11 in October)
Height: 17,1 hh
Registered: Yes, KWPN - and has some pretty sweet bloodlines too!
About him: Shown extensively in both Europe and the US, has done Grand Prix, 7' 3'' puissance walls, etc., and has been very successful. About two years ago he suffered a suspensory injury that lead his owners to downsize his jumping, he now only does up to around 3'6. He is an extremely sweet, patient, and gentle guy, very very light off your leg (but not scary or strong) and has a mouth softer thanbutter. Is a very competitive participant in jumpers, hunters, and equitation at rated shows.
Sorry I don't have any real conformation shots...he is a little bit toed out behind but that's the only real flaw I see in him. He is also slightly uphill but I don't really consider that a flaw hehe.

Also wanted to add that he doesn't have a single spook or refusal in sweetheart.

He looks like such a sweet guy. :] Very flashy jumper, super scopey!

Around here, he's probably go for around $10,00 just because of his injury. He also looks more like a jumper than a hunter, and around here, hunters go for more than jumpers. If he was still able to show more scope, 20k+.

Yep, it's the same way with hunters around here, and much as I love his jump I know it's not very hunter-y! Lol. At this point we don't really know what his scope is, as his soundness hasn't been tested past 3'6. But he doesn't need to do the big stuff with me so why push him? :) Thanks for your reply!

Anyone else? :)

$10,000-$12,000 if you're lucky. He is very attractive, great conformation, and very scopey. However, he is reaching his peak age, and he has that injury which would definitely decrease his value significantly.

Ummm in canada $8000-$12000...very beautiful but more of a jumper look the hunter.

I'd say $8-10K without X-rays, and extensive imaging of ALL of his legs. I personally wouldn't buy just because of the injury, and the fact, they almost always resurface. He's adorable, but not much of a hunter. I would say $15,000 if there was proof he was 100% sound, and he was a little younger. In the picture of him O/F his form is sub par at best, and it might just be that picture, but that(him not tucking his legs, or using his neck) would immensly decrease his value. But like I said, super cute, and I think your very lucky to find such a sweet boy.

I agree around $8K, at his age and with that injury.

I agree, however it could be because he has jumped so high that he really doesn't put much effort into smaller jumps, I'd definitely put a picture of him going over something bigger.

I'd market him as a lower level jumper school master type horse, as he sounds like he could pack a kid around up to to 3'6".
