Need a price on my Oldenburg Mare!

I am thinking about selling my 16.1 oldenburg mare and I am wondering how much I should list her for... IF I decide to sell her.

She is 16.1 register/branded Oldenburg and she is also registered part-bred cleveland bay. She has outstanding bloodlines. Her sire is elite han stallion Weltbekannt by Weltmeyer and her dam is lesser known Idlehour Mirage.

She is 6 and green broke and never shown. She has great conformation (you can see her pic on my horseforum profile) and A++ movement. She loads OK, clips, bathes, vets, stands for the farrier. Lunges like a dream!! She is super super sweet to people but she is boss mare in the pasture. Very level headed and doesn't panic in tough situations like she got caught up in the fence and just sat there and waited for someone to cut her out and had hardly a scratch on her. A rider fell off of her (Saddle slipped) and she didn't spook she just stood there. She walks, trots and canters fine just needs some refining. She has never bucked, reared or done anything stupid. She does great on trails... Use to ride her on the Virginia Creeper Trail under highways .. around joggers, golf carts, other horses, bikers, dogs over high wooden bridges... She hates water though... even little puddles so that would need work. She is way nervous for the first half hour or so in new places so she can be hard to tack up as she paces back and fourth.. Even if she is nervous when you get on she still does what she's asked... just calls out a lot.

She is bred for dressage through and through but I have pointed her over a few jumps and she seems to love it. For more pedigree info and pics visit my website Sharper Image

How much would you list her for? Feel free to ask any questions if it helps...

I'm not great on WB bloodlines (just learning them myself) but from the pictures, it seems like all the riding pics are her in some sort of draw or side reins so I can't really get a feel for her movement. I'd love to see some of her at liberty as well as her under saddle without any artificial aids - that right there would present her as a more valuable horse and less green. I'm not saying misrepresent her - I think you gave good honest information, however if you have pics of her only in side reins/draw reins, it makes me wonder how good of a mover she really is since with artificial aids it is hard to see how the horse actually is moving (especially since she isn't really carrying herself at all in the pics). By adding a liberty pic it would give a feel for natural movement w/o a rider - which should be nice based on her breeding - and thus justify the asking price (whatever that may be).

I think a good general assessment is depending on her bloodlines, between $6k - $10k. I know that's a HUGE range, but since I'm not well versed in WB lines, I can't say any more specific than that. I think a lot of people expect to pay in the 5 figures for a well bred WB, even a green broke one, provided they are level headed which you say she is.

I did a search for Tx Oldenburg on Equine.com and a 3' hunter is going for $13k and a 2008 gelding is going for $8.5k. There's also a 2005 mare advertised for $15k as a hunter prospect. So that should give you an idea for a comparison. I'd say some of the negatives are her lack of training and age so if you can get some saddle time to refresh her memory so she's not so rusty, it would likely be easy to get about $10k for her is my guess. Good luck!

I was just looking at what pictures I had and just realized all those pictures are in a neck stretcher! I should probably look for different pics.

Her issues are sometimes she is quick paced and other times you can't beat her into a decent trot lol. Trotting her down center line is pretty funny because she isn't the straightest.. However all these things go away when you point her at a jump. Its just basic green stuff that with consistant work will correct easily. I use to take her to my college riding classes and she did well.

She is a cuddle bug and LOVES people.. RUNS to gate when she sees you but also runs off the other horse your trying to grab instead lol. She actually stands better in the isle way not tied to anything.. I love love love her... its just that I spend a fortune on horses and I want one that I don't have to train everyday to get the results I'm looking for. I have to many greenies!

Yes I agree with CJ you should have pictures without draw reins or martingales.
Do you have any jumping pix? Or if your trying to sell her to a dressage client you prob want some extension pix and some collected pix.
