My mustang mare

Just curious what you guys think of Savanna. I asked this before, when I first bought her. She's changed in a lot of ways since then (at least in my eyes). What do you think?

When I bought her in February:




-------------
Now:









Just for the heck of it, how about that jump? LOL



ALSO for the heck of it, how much would you think her value is? To me she's priceless, but I wonder sometimes what kind of offers I'd get on her if she was for sale. Here's some background info:

She's an American Mustang, registration pending with AMBA (sent in papers yesterday!). Has been to two recreational shows - nothing "fancy", was just show in walk/trot western but it was really just the experience she was there for. She has been on trails - VERY good trail horse. Will go alone, lead, or follow. Hauls like a dream. Great with the vet and farrier. Kids can and have handled her, as well as ridden her, but she is best for the intermediate rider. With a 4H kid, she would progress very very nicely. There's a 4h girl that jumps that is playing with her at the new place I board. She lunges great, rides easy, and has a solid walk/trot/extended trot and we are working on solidifying the canter (leads, departures, downward transitions, etc). She's a very very nice mover and well-mannered. She is not marish at all. You can ride a horse right up on her butt and she won't care a bit.

Wow! How beautiful!! Looks like you are taking great care of her. Gotta love the stangs:) As far as how much she is worth...i'm no expert however from the information you have given I would say around 4 to 5,000.

I couldn't price her because that varies hugely by area. Horses are much more expensive in my area than, say, Texas or Arkansas or other southern state. She is really a doll, though, and you've done a nice job bringing her along.

First off - gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!

She overall seems very alert, bright eyed, lovely coat, great weight. Her muscle tone has much improved since February.

She's got an adorable face, nicely defined for a mustang. Built a tiny bit downhill, and she's slight camped under in the front, but nice and straight in the hind. I would have liked to see more upright pasterns on the front legs. They're alright in the hind but are fairly short. Nice short back, good shoulder angle, but a little steep hip angle. Her neck is also a wee bit cresty.

I'm not going to guesstimate a price, but I'd love to see her in the (pony?) hunter ring!

She certainly has changed! You've done beautifully with her. She was cute in the before pictures, but now she's gorgeous.

Yes I agree. Here in KY, a mustang will only sell if it's a fabulous trail horse. But this mare is from California, and I often wonder how much she'd sell for nowadays. Thank you for the compliments :)

Thank you! She is only camped in one photo I think - I believe she was just standing funny. Hehe and she DOES have a thick neck doesn't she? Ever since I started working her under saddle she has muscled up very quickly through her neck. I think she'd make a fabulous hunter. There are some girls at the barn I board at now that have ridden her a couple of times that jump. I kind of want one of them to adopt her as their 4h horse :P Yes, "horse" lol she's not a very big horse, but she's 15 hands.

She is VERY pretty and you've done a nice job. Price wise in this area you might get $1,000.

Thank you :) And yes, that would probably be the most I could get out of her. You're fairly close to me (I've sold two horses to Michigan) and I think that's about right. :)
