    What would YOU pay?

    Well this girl is basically my project but I tend to get attatched to horses and keep them hahaha but the plan was to school her up and sell her on to a great home.

    Just wanting to know what you guys think she could be worth once ready?
    *dont have any ridden pics yet sorry*

    She's a Thoroughbred
    She's 13 but has as much energy as a youngster.
    Is sane and easy to handle from both the ground and whilst being ridden.
    She jumps 1.20m with ease and LOVES it! She is not a fan of small jumps, has a great jumping style and always gets her striding correct
    She has been full wire hunted for 3 years and is still going strong at the end of the day.
    Easy to catch, groom, tack up, mount etc.
    Perfect to float.
    No kick, buck, rear or bolt but is a typical TB if only ridden a couple of times a week but is not dirty, just full of herself and wanting to go!
    Carries herself in a lovely natural frame when doing all aspects of work.
    Perfect for farrier, dentist and to worm.
    Awsome round cats, dogs and other animals, inclusding kids
    Cars, trucks, motorbikes etc don't phase her.

    So basically just wanting to know what you think she COULD be worth bear in mind she will be evented and shown before sale!

    *heres a couple of pics, please note that I have only purchased her last weekend and she has been turned out for the last year or two so she needs more condition and muscled etc*

    Bexandponies, I couldn't tell you what she is worth in your country but I do have some concerns. You may be doing way too much with her in such a short time. There are several things that I question. She has been shod, had dental work, jumped over 3', etc. all after owning her only several days and hadn't been ridden in 1 or 2 years. That is an overload for any horse - willing or not.

    I would suggest that you slow down a bit. It's even possible that she can break down unless you bring her along more slowly. Give her a chance to build muscle, stamina, and weight.

    around in my area, which is mostly qh people, she would probably gor for around $2,500 or less. There is a mare just like her in my area that has done a ton of stuff and is well well broke and has been sitting at $2,500 for a while, same age breed and even color lol. But that's my area...

    Hi,

    ACTUALLY I have ridden her ONCE since owning her due to the fact her teeth were so bad and she was in pain so I refused to put her through anymore pain so did NOT ride her until the dentist had been and had his opinion! Where did I say that I had done all those things on her? This is what she CAN do, not IS currently doing!
    She has had the dentist out straight away because her previous owner never had her teeth done for 3 years and she was on her way to developing "wave mouth" and she could not chew her food properly.
    She is getting her feet trimmed next week due to the fact that she needs PROFESSIONAL trimming as her previous owner did his own work and he has trimmed one of her back hooves unevenly so it is putting pressure on her pastern, another reason I am NOT currently riding her!
    I have not jumped her myself yet but her previous owner jumped her that height when I went and had a look at her, this was his choice to do so as he still owned her technically.
    So far since owning her ALL I have done is ridden her once and spent ALOT of money trying to make her happy by getting her teeth fixed, purchasing her new rugs, buying her hay and feed to fatten her up and just spent time with her!

    No offence but please don't tell me im pushing her when I have done barely anything with her except try and make her feel more loved than what she was in her previous home!

    As a wise person once told me you have to take advice on this forum with a grain of salt or sometimes a bag....
