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 actually just had my friend ride him the other day and he took her over some training level xc fences with an issue and she's currently at entry level (given that she was screaming the whole time and Whin didn't even bat an eyelash at anything she did haha) and he's a total point and shoot over jumps with anyone. He changes over fences and you need to push him for a flying change depending on the situation, he's usually just auto changing over fences so I don't really feel the need to school flying changes all the time :) Thank you for your kind words, he is wonderful and he knows it too! And he just completed his second year of showing. I should have mentioned that he's a total pro when he goes off property, just chills and the trailer with some hay. We parked next to a spooky arab and Whin was as relaxed as anything while our neighbors horse was prancing around!
