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.
