    I have decided to sell my mare...what is she worth?

    After alot of soul searching I have decided it's time to find a ridder for my girl that can ride her and enjoy her. I am just too timid of a ridder. Neither of us enjoy our rides together.
    Gracie is a 5 year old Halfinger Appy cross. She is aproximately 14h tall and very healthy. I have had her for about a year now and she has never had any health issues. She has great feet that are strong. I've never put shoes on her.
    Gracie is trained to the hilt. She resonds really well to leg cues as long as you establish your the one in charge. She can trot all day long and has a smooth trot.
    My question is: I bought her for $500 and then put $2100 into her for training.
    What is she worth? I would like to advertise her as $3000 so that gives me and a potential buyer some room to work with.
    Any advices? I will take more pictures and video of her being ridden by my husband.

    I think that is a good price for her since you put that much money into her. She is quiet cute

    I love her butt. Around here if she can go english i'd say 3.5-4k would be a good price

    I would love to see a video, but I'd agree with 3.5-4k

    What does she do? That would help a lot on determining what I'd be willing to pay.

    If she's just a trail horse who can side pass, back, the easy things, etc. then I'd pay max of $2,000.

    If she can do more, then the price would go up from there.

    To put it in perspective, my friend just purchased a four year old AQHA who is show-ready (for showmanship, western pleasure, western riding, trail, etc) and paid $2,500.

    Honestly, I don't know what all the trainer taught her. We never got past walking and circles because I wasn't ready. He said she would be great in open shows for western pleasure and I know he taught her some dressage stuff to get her collected and using her body. I will figure this stuff out so I can advertise her better. Thanks for the info and questions. Keep them coming. I want her advertisments to be really well put together so she sells faster.

    Awh she's got a little Appy rear lacing. I think 2.5k-3k sounds pretty reasonable.

    She is lovely. If I had a place for her, I'd want her. But, I'm only looking for a trail horse, and 3000 is way out of my price range anyway. I'm sorry it didn't work out for you two; I hope you find a great home for her.

    Horse prices are all over the map, and the horse market is still way down, but around here horses like yours would be for sale for $2500-$3500 by folks not in a rush to sell.

    She's real good looking and based on the fact that a timid rider can't ride her i'd say that she would bring around 1500 tops around here. A kid horse might go for more. Of course if she is real well trained, you aught to be able to control her. Do you just lack confidence or do you feel she is trying to run away all the time. Haflingers are usually very good natured horses and she looks to carry a large dose of that. It's not for me to say, but if you sell her what will you do next? Get another horse or give up riding. How about taking some riding lessons or having some one work with both of you in a round pen and help you gain the confidence that will allow you to cowgirl up.
    If I said too much, please understand that I didn't mean to step on your toes.
    By the way, I love marines.
