    Need a critique on my Aunt's Mare.

    So this horse is for sale, my aunt owns her. I have my doubts about her, but I was wondering what you all think? How much should we ask for her? She has been up for sale for almost a year I believe, and no takers. Any advice or critique would be appreciated. Feel free to ask questions also.

    I did my best taking photos, but my aunt was not around to help, and I was trying to take care of a chihuahua at the time, so I couldn't get too near the horse. More pics are not available at the moment, although I could maybe get some late. Thanks in advance!!

    PS I know some of the pics have people riding w/o a helmet. My apologies, they are not me riding.

    Without a temperment description, some riding videos, an idea of how well trained she is, or whether or not she's trained in a certain discipline (reining, trail horse, pasture pet, etc) and correct confo pictures, I really don't feel like I can give you a good estimate.

    She seems solidly built enough...I'm assuming she's QH? Maybe QH mix? Age, size, experience...all of that needs to be taken into account =]

    I'd say, from what I can see, $800-1,000 is about all you'd get. She's not the flashiest animal, and looks mellow- but with this economy, you can't get more than that even for a moderately trained, papered horse.

    Oh yes I know, I figured I'd wait for someone to ask before I gave a huge description.

    She's 7 years old, registered Quarter horse mare. She is definitely WP bred. She is a sweet mare, but really needs more work. Honestly, I think she would be an amazing 4h horse. Not a mean bone in her body, but she needs work under saddle. Was used as a broodmare and had a healthy AQHA foal. She has been ridden on the roads, in fields, and some trails I believe. She goes well in a hackamore or bit. No speed at all in this horse, she would be better suited w/t or trail.

    Previous owner bred her and had her sent for some professional training. I honestly think with a rider with experience, she would be awesome. Her owner right now is the ride on the weekends type. She does fine, but she is kept alone (yes completely alone) and is not given much ground work, just riding.

    I would take her in, but I have my hands full enough with Onyx. She is going to be a great kids horse with some desensitizing and proper training, especially on the ground and with controlling fear. As of right now, she doesn't have enough miles to be completely trusted with a child. She does well leading with a child on her back though.

    Really I am hoping to get her sold because she isn't getting anywhere sitting around.

    When selling a horse the most important factor to look at is location. In some areas you might get $1000 for her if you were lucky, in Hawaii she would fetch at *least* $5000. I recommend looking at similar horses in your area for sale to see what they're going for.

    She'd probably only sell for $500-650 in my area, because of the huge drought. I agree with horseloverd2, though. Look at similar horses in your area and go off of that.

    Well right now she is priced at 900. Others like her are easily selling for that. That is why I was wondering if anyone sees any problems that I am missing.

    If not then we will just keep trying. I just feel bad for her since she is all alone... that's why I want to get her sold so bad. She's not my horse, so nothing I can do except help my aunt sell her. *sigh*

    I'm surprised you're having so much trouble selling her. She looks like a cute, sweet little mare, and she seems reasonably priced. Where do you have her listed?

    Well I have tried multiple horse selling sites, plus craigslist, and a local paper. I have her listed on here too. So far I think I have dreamhorse, equine.com, horseclicks, and maybe a few others. I will have to check.
