I'm in love with his horse...Tell me what you think of him?

^^^Sorry its a her! Not a guy haha^^^

Okay sooo I am looking at horses to buy and I loveee this mare. This is the only mare that I can say I love cause I mostly love geldings but I love her. There is a video of her on this add tell me what you think. And if you don't have the sound on you can't hear that there is wind and that's why her ears are back. Oh and She would be used in hunter like she already is. She is a champion in the hunter, hunter under saddle, and equitation. So tell me what you think!

Hey he looks nice! He does have quite the price tag though. He also isn't a super young guy. He is probably in his good years, he has experience and still has years to go. He looks great. If your willing to pay that much for the horse, you could look into it and check things out. Make sure you get a vet check and get to ride him first, before you buy. The last thing you need is to end up buying a horse with hidden health issues.

Very true! I'll have my trainer come with me and check him out and also have a vet come with us.

She looks nice. The only thing I didn't really like from the video was her pinning her ears as she jumped. Could just be her, her riders cues, or could be something else. IDK that just jumped out at me.

Ha yea, but if you watched the video with sound on you could hear that there was a ton of wind and i'm guessing that's why her ears were back(:

Not in a million years a $10k horse, maybe a $1-2k horse. I am in PA too so I know your market, do a youtube search for horses for sale in that price range and they are jumping 3 times that height. I could understand that for a 5 yr old jumping that height, but for a 14 yr old, they should be at their best at that point. I don't mean to be rude, but I would expect my dog to jump those fences, and not a $10k horse.

I don't mean to be rude, I really don't, but I would not spend more than $1500 on that horse, at the most, and this would be a push, I would be in the $1k range. Look up $10k jumpers and save your money. They are about a million times better than this.

I am not trying to be snotty, but I have a $1500 horse who could do this with his eyes closed and he was no bargain, I bought him for how he was priced and what he was worth at the time, but he is only 5.

I was going to say something similar to what AlexS just said, though I'm not sure if I agree with her in saying this is not a 10k horse. In Maryland you can still sell a nice, competitive 2'6" packer for 10k (though, is that the jump height she's doing?).

I am thinking this horse is probably limited by her size she really needs stretches between the lines to get the strides even at that height. She seems like a nice horse and very easy to ride, which does increase the value, but if you are looking to move on I don't think this horse is going to do that for you. Over higher jumps I think she might look like she's running to make the stride.

I do really like some aspects about this horse. I like how she keeps her head nice and low all the way to the jumps and she actually put a lot of effort into the jumps, despite them being small. Her knees are also nice. She does seem to like and ride the gap (which is good for a hunter) and she has nice lead changes.

If this is what your looking for I think she'd be worth going to look at. She probably has a show record a mile long and will probably pack you around a hunter course very nicely. Nice packers are relatively hard to find.

Price is just watever the seller wants and the buyer wants. In this case they both think 10k is reasonable? (i think) but think about a well bred weanling... they easily go for 3k by the time the owner or breeder registers it, halter breaks, starts lunge work, starts saddle work the price jacks up.... wwaayyy up. For me looking at paint horses a 3 year old just started under saddle w/t/c will be 10k. But then again look at their confo... their pedagree... their disposition. Your paying for all of that so just do your research a little to see if 10k is worth it.
