    Wow, what a beauty! Personally I think this horse is probably worth close to 10k. You can tell he's actively listening to the rider and gee, look at that awesome slow canter!! He'd probably do well in HUS and eq, too.

    Alright, I like the first mare, but I like the sorrel Quarter horse the most out of the two. But it says she's sold.

    I can easily see the first mare being 10k, we have lesson/show ponies that can only do flat for 10k.. I'm in Virginia. I DO NOT like the 3rd horse, they didn't set their ad up right, she looks bony & thin, not enough pictures of the horses performance. I like the last horse, but he's not what you're looking for. You want a horse who can "teach", he's a professional show horse who probably needs a rider who can do everything already, no offense. ;]

    IF you're interested I have a 13.2 Arab gelding who jumps up to 2'3 for lease down here. I can do something long term if you want.. haha.

    I like this horse..not sure whether it is a nice bombproof horse, looks nice with the smaller rider but I don't mean to be rude, the heavier rider seems to bounce all over the horses back so the horse was a little "spicy". Worth a shot possibly?

    Wow, for $500 that's a steal! SHe is older, though, which reduces her value significantly

    Just as a note, that mare is going on 17 years old. I like her. [:

    I don't like that chestnut mare. All the pictures of her jumping look old and the more recent pictures seem to show a horse that's chunky and possible out of shape. Her knees are cleaner than that pinto, but not as nice as the first mare. She's also older, and if she has been jumping will probably need leg maintenance. If you watch the other videos, she lifts her head and rushes to fences. I would look at her for a jumper, but she doesn't go around like a hunter.

    For me, the first mare looks fast for the hunters, I think in any higher division she will look like she is running down the lines. The buckskin paint, Smudge, I've seen the horse go in person, he is at a friends barn. He is an extremely nice horse, however, he is very green and if you are looking for something to teach you he is not it. I think if you are looking for a hunter, look for something that is steady, has a nice jump, is a good or decent mover. When I did the hunters, horses who "flowed" down the lines usually placed better.

    I'm going to disagree with everyone who said the horse is way overpriced at 10k. Especially AlexS. Find me a successful hunter that can clock around a course that's a decent mover with an auto lead change and a nice show record to boot and I guarantee the price tag is going to be close to this price range. If you can find me horses just like this for $1500 I may have to hire you to help find me horses! In fact, if the horse was a bit larger with a bigger stride she would be worth more. That's probably her biggest downfall and I think one reason why she's rushing a little bit, it's harder for her to get down the lines. (although, I don't think it's so much she'd get counted off) Remember too that they've padded her price to come down a bit if needed and probably add on a trainer's commission.

    What I didn't like about her is that she pins her ears (in a tough class a judge will count off). She gets a bit rushed/unbalanced on the backside of the fences, but that's nothing a little training can fix. I think it's a bit funny that the ad says she has a classic jump EVERY time, yet the last jumping pic of her is a little sloppy. ;) I can't blame her though, the jumps are small and she's not trying that hard. I like her. I like her better then anything else you've put a link too, except maybe that smudge horse. He's kind of cute! (doesn't say how he moves though or if he's got an auto change)
