How much would you pay for him? - Joe.

I am not planning on selling him anytime soon, I was just wondering what your area would pay for him.

I save him from the doggers, so he was free - and all the training has been done by me.

He does buck, but that's only when he gets excited, he has bolted, and reared once[instructor put a standing martingale on him?] - but that's about it.

Joe is an ex-racer, and a very good jumper, and has quietned down so much, that I have put my bestfriend who has never ridden in her life on him.

What would you pay for him, and what do you think of him? (:


And my bestfriend got on him bareback.

Age, history, health , temperament, training, discipline, ground manners, saddle manners, all these things go into considering cost. Can we have some specifics?
Oh and your general location would be helpful as well.

Horses like that are generally a dime a dozen, unless you have competed on him and done well in high grade events I would say no more then $1000

Opps; forgot about all that stuff. :P

Age; 11

History; Joe is a 15.3h TB gelding, He was bred in NSW in Australia to Our Mazicay and Cariboo Lady, he raced in a couple of races, but failed as a racehorse, but that's all I really no since he was a rescue.

Joe has a very trainable mind, and this makes it easy to teach ground manners. He stands all day at the float, but when in a small yard [racing yard] he does pace at the gate. He has very good ground manners, and only gets pushy when he stands around to long, and he gets cinchy.

Joe has been trained in English such as jumping, dressage, hacking and mounted games. Although we have had a go at barrel racing, and he seemed to enjoy that.

Joe does have a slight roach back, but we were told by the chiro that this hasn't effected his overal performance. Joe does have some back problem, and this was caused when my Pop had him and he followed another horse that bolted through a wire fence.

In the saddle Joe is very willing, but often has trouble flexing to the left side of the arena, but we are working on this. He jumps just about everything, and has a big trot and a nice flowing canter.

My location is Western Australia.

I have competed in a couple of shows with Joe this year coming home with two 4ths, 2 seconds and a 3rd. I competed in my first offical EFA show, and we got clear rounds, but didn't place. He can also jump up to 1.05m and is currently competeing at 40 -70cm

40cm - 3 day Jumping. [EFA]

50cm- 3 day Jumping. [EFA]

70cm- 3 day Jumping. [EFA]

We only got $2k for a FANTASTIC pony that was competing to 70cm (his second EVER jumping competition, first at that height, unfit out of the paddock, and he placed) and doing very well, and he was something really spectacular temperament- and conformation-wise, plus had the potential to be a really spectacular performance pony. Unfortunately at the moment horses like Joe are a dime a dozen and not really worth very much because of it. Hate to say it.

Also, where is your release?
    07-16-2011, 06:21 AM
Yeah, I was just seeing what he was worth; he's come so far, and I have fallen inlove with him. :P

;P yes, I am working on my release it comes up many of times in my lessons, that and keeping my heels down so my leg doesn't slip back. Thank you.

Something I did to improve mine was tie a ribbon into my horse's mane. A neck strap also works. Just gives you something to aim for. Make sure you give a big crest release to start with, less chance of hurting his mouth if you get left behind when you're holding a nice chunk of mane.
