Price Check :)

Hi everyone,

Okay, so I am very likely to be buying a horse soon (which I'm VERY excited about!!!) And I'm just curious to find out how much she's really worth. (Her price seems extremely reasonable to me, I'm just wondering if people will guess higher, really)

She's an 8 year old Oldenburg mare. She's about 16hh. She has shown First level dressage successfully with scores in the mid 60's, and schools Second level well. She has jumped 3'. She's well put together, very compact, yet long-legged and elegant. Her gaits were her WOW factor though. I can see some REALLY NICE extensions coming from this mare - she has crazy power in the hind end, lots of expression and a natural uphill balance. She's very light on the forehand, and maintains a soft, steady connection with the bit. Oh, and I should probably mention that this is all after she had a foal this spring and has barely been back in work.

So, what's your guesstimate? :)

Pictures/videos? Location? Do you have her registered name to look up show records? Around here a horse like that will go for about $4,000-$5,000, depending on experience.

Hm, I don't really have any pictures of her. I'm getting her on trial some time this week. I'll post some pics & video of her when she gets here.

Around here she'd be $8,000 easily by the description.

From your description I would say 6,500-8,000. This is just a wild guess though.

5-9 thousand.... really it all depends on how back into work she is. Has a trainer been working her in a program or did they just start getting back on?
