Talking how much is he worth?

Love Smokin Circles(Chester)just about to turn three in may second. Chester is 15h buckskin quarter horse gelding. He is a very sweet tempered gelding. He will walk right into a trailer without giving you no problems at all. Chester loves to be bathed and he stands for the ferrior and vet with no problem. Chester is up todate on all shots and wormings. He know how to lung in a round pen and on a lung line. He stands for being brush and saddles and being mounted. He has great ground manners and he is very repectful. You can ride him in a bosol or a hackamore and he responds very well. He has a natural head set with more work he would be a great western pleasure horse. Chesters trot is slow and smooth. He would be a great young horse once fully trained. Chester knows how to walk trot and canter on the ground. He is walking and trotting nicely in the saddle as well. Chester went on his first trail ride two weeks ago and nothing fased him. He did awesome. will get videos on request!

He would look much nicer with some weight on him and would bring more money. Not used to seeing QH that thin. If I were selling I would want my horses to look the best they possibly can. That said it costs money to fatten him up so you may just be needing to unload him?

The horse looks in good weight, he's still young after all. With training you could sell him for a pretty penny he's a looker.

His weight is perfect. Could use a little more muscle though. Not sure about the price. Has he been shown? Any awards/winnings? If not he's basically a project or a trail horse with a pretty color (from what I've seen, no offense meant). Where are you located? In my area I've seen plenty of really pretty trail horses w/ a lot more experience go for under $2k....

Nice looking little guy.

It's nearly impossible to sell a horse at this level of training for any price in my area right now; even with fabulous breeding and high performance potential.

The problem is that there are lots of people who can take a horse from unbroken to this point, and not very many at all who can take one from this point to finished in a discipline.

Also, folks looking for a nice pleasure/trail horse usually shy away from 3 - 4 year olds and look at older horses.

You don't mention why you're selling him; but I would say that if you can keep him and continue to bring him along and further his training, you'll get more money and have a much bigger pool of potential buyers.

His conformation isn't awful, but he's not spectacular either. In my area you would be lucky to $1000 for him. He's pretty average, as far as looks go. Hell my grandmother just sold her triple-registered buckskin yearling with conformation slightly better than your guy for $300. Even my mare, who is an excellent barrel horse and youth horse as well as a steady trail horse, I wouldn't get $2500 for her. So yeah, I personally don't see him fetching all that much money. I can go to New Holland or Camelot and get a similar horse in both looks and bloodlines for under $500.

Yeah I was just thinking about this. I went to an auction this weekend (higher grade/class auction) and there were plenty of horses that looked as good as this guy or better and had more training/experience that went for $1000-$1500. The first horse in the auction went for like $1200 and he was comparable to your boy, except he was a flashy bay paint (I don't know the paint designators, but he had some nice color).
