How much is she worth???

So i bought a horse recently and i was wondering how much you guys thought she was worth cause i want to know if i over paid for her....

Bandera:
6 years old and 2 months
17hh
Mom: Holstiener TB
Dad: (Bandit) Hanoverian TB; he was doing the Grand Prix and went to spruce meadows.
IJF registered
showing up to 3'3 but schooled up to 3'6
schooling novice cross country
sound ( UC Davis said so )
6-8 over track in the walk
Grand prix rider said she would be a good dressage horse because she has really good movement


I know the jumps are really low in that one... And her trot looks choppy cause i was working on slow trot.



Thanks!

It's hard to say. To me she looks green, if that's the case, you're going off of prospective talent. Provided both parents have a decent show record, she's of decent mind, sound and breed-able... 6k ish. Also you're location will change the price. Where I'm located, she might be 3k but drive 2 hrs north or south and she could easily bring 10k.

Ok well your prices are def going to be way higher. Here you can buy an A circuit horse for 5K and be competitive, though good luck finding a lot of shows.

How did she pin?

She doesn't travel like a 'well schooled' horse at all...depending on the amount you paid for her, you may have been able to find a more trained mount for the same amount.

She travels pretty hollow, and her head is sky high, and she evades the bit, and leans on you quite a bit.

I agree with Mom. I'd say between $2K and $3K and absolutely not over $3K. I agree with the other poster than mentioned the 'potential' rather than where the horse is right now - which looks to need quite a bit of work.

Unless it weighs a ton... it's just a horse. Draft horse motto.

I don't see it, but I'm sure people out there would pay it.
