Aha - that makes a lot more sense then what I was thinking.... I work in health, and all I could think of was PPE - Personal Protective Equipment

Somehow that didn't seem to fit right!

BTW I think he looks good - well worth looking at. And to me $3000 seems cheap! I sold my 13yr old TB gelding who was competing prelim dressage (scores of 60%) and occasionally jumping about 80cm in lessons only for $3000. And he was only in minimal work at the time! I am based in Australia though!

I recently went to look at a TBxTrak mare, 4yo, 15.3hh, some basic dressage training, competing prelim scores 60-65% for sale for $8000 - she failed my PPE (<---see what I did there!! ) as she had a heart murmer!! Next month she was re-advertised for $12000!!!!

OMG wow! See how good it is to do those PPE's!!! I didnt do one on my last girl cause she was sucha rescue case and I payed cash for her, now just sold her for 1500 :) pretty darn happy with how she came out but wasnt going to make a solid 3ft show jumper or go past training level in dressage :(

I didn't do a PPE on my OTTB mare (Avatar pic) - I only paid $1200 for her though (the going rate around here for OTTB is from $500 to $3000!) I did do my 'own' check though, and she seemed sound enough.

I usually only do a PPE when I spend over $3000. If your spending less than that, and the PPE costs anywhere from $500 and up, its hardly worth it in MHO...

Yeah, I know he is sound, he has clean Xrays he has just been sitting ina pasture. I will do my own lamness check, see if he is body sore all that stuff.

The major strike against this horse is height. At way under 16hh, resale almost certainly won't be nearly as much as a comparable horse that is over that magical 16hh mark, even if he is great in his discipline.

And I am looking for a horse I wont be re selling in the near future.

If you did want to sell him in the future, and he was a schoolmaster and sensible, he could always be marketed as a 'junior' horse for young teenagers moving up from ponies...
