Price This Gelding!

Greased Lightning "Whinny" is a 16.0hh 3/4 Quarter Horse 1/4 Dutch Warmblood 2008 dun gelding. There is no buck/bolt/bite/rear in him and has the most pleasant temperament I've ever seen in a horse. He has impeccable ground manners and rides w/t/c in a frame. He is extremely soft mouthed and responsive to the leg. I've thrown my sister on him who's only ever been on a pony ride once and she rode him walk/trot without a fuss. He has been ridden by a 9 year old and always minds himself especially around the younger ones. He jumps a 3'3 course with ease with tons of room to go higher. He's free jumped up to 4'6 and jumped under saddle up to 4'0 with ease. I got him in 2011 as a rescue, he came from a home that really knew nothing about the care and keeping of horses and also knew nothing about how to treat them. He was jumpy and nervous and even sent a woman to the hospital. After about a year of just de-sensitizing and TLC I was able to ride him at the walk with someone on the ground leading me. He has now been under saddle for two years and is showing major potential for eventing, jumpers, hunter, and dressage. I would like if someone could possibly put a price on my boy. To me he's worth his weight in gold and more, but I would like to have another's opinion. Thank you for taking the time to read this almost-novel about my horse!

Without a resume with scores and times and actual professional training time I would price him around 5-6k as a potential eventing, pony club or AA horse. Now if you had scores from dressage that where 62% and higher and improving his price could go as far up as 10k here where I live.

He sounds like a fabulous ride and you have turned him around to be just so! Props to you and your hard dedicated work!!! He's a stunning happy looking jumper!!!

He consistently gets scores in dressage around 65%+ in entry level eventing. We've never had a time fault on XC and he makes the tightest corners in stadium. In our recent 3'0 jumper speed he trotted half of the course and we were the fastest time. He's my superstar :) Thank you everyone for all the positive feedback!

Do you have conformation photos? He is absolutely gorgeous. He sounds like he is a pretty solid horse as well. In our area you could definitely price him around 10K.

My area, I'm not familiar with jumpers, but he's big, he's beautiful, he's an odd eye catching color, (if there are no major conformation faults), and he looks like a precise Bold jumper. Id say $10,000 and up with more training/showing.

Shoot, some spoiled little kids parents might pay $25,000 for him. LoL. He's worth what someone will pay.

Does he have much of a show record? That can really bump his price up.

Does he have a lead change?

How easy he on course for a beginner?

He is adorable and I Love that you love him! :) I would agree, around here you could start around 10k but definitely ask more with a nice record. If you can get him winning around 4"? About 30k is closer to a price in the h/j world, but I have found that h/j horses for wahtever reason tend to be a little higher priced then eventing horses.

I have no idea about what price he'd go for in my area but I've stopped by this thread multiple times now just to look at him. What a stunning animal. He obviously LOVES his job which makes him that much more charismatic, and you two look like a wonderful pair. I'm loving the matching 'outfits' too!

Animals like this one just don't have a price. He really is paying you back for taking him in and giving him a chance, isn't he?

He is just gorgeous and looks like a fun but trustworthy ride. Priceless :)
