Bring her to NC...I'll buy her!
She looks like a really nice horse, and echoing the others, I would put her on a site where there is a wider pool of buyers looking. I'm sure there are others in Alaska looking to buy a horse.
I can't really comment on price since every location is different. Where I am in NC, OTTBs are a dime a dozen and even with as nice as she comes across in the video, she would only bring $2500-$3000 tops. But I'm not saying she's overpriced for your area, just mine.
I like that you showed how a smaller rider can handle her, but the video doesn't reflect what you said she can do in your ad. I would redo or add to the video jumping her over a real course, not just one jump, and cantering the course, not just trotting in and cantering out. Especially if you are advertising her as a hunter, being able to approach a jump in a consistent, calm canter is important. Also, get a video of her out in a field or on a trail, since you said she loves to trail ride. Many horses are just fine in an arena, but as soon as they leave the enclosed space, they can become a very different horse. If she's as calm outside the arena as she is inside, prove it. That, at least to me, is a big pro. Lastly, put specifics about her showing. What classes and placings has she gotten? Were the shows local schooling shows or rated? If you are marketing her to a small pool of potential buyers and pricing her for what may be a bit high, then those details will better be able to justify the price.
