    My first thought would be to put 30 days of training into the horse that currently has the least amount of training. To me, this would provide a larger increase in "value" from a sales standpoint. Smallest investment for greatest return. So unless one of the mares will improve a bunch, I would say send Ben.

    Emmy is pure bred Arab, and nicely bred, well out of a super mare anyway

    Willow is Sadllebred x Arab, registered as half arab

    Ben is Perch/tb x Saddlebred

    The girls have papers, and are broken, and with a little work on them will both increase in value.

    All Ben has going for him is a great color, nice size and a beautiful face, so you are correct, if he has a solid foundation put in him it will protect him and give him a value, because when it comes to it a grade gelding can only rely on what he can do to get him through!

    Ben. Ben. Ben.

    You + Ben = Amazing.

    Willow is nice but when I saw you on Ben, it was lovely!!

    So if you send Ben, then you have 2 months with Willow and your trainer and can definitely get some good miles on her too.

    It's like getting two birds with one stone.

    No wonder I like Ben. He's got two of my Fav breeds in him...percheron and saddlebred. I'm surprised he's not a handful! Lucky girl!

    I have to say that big heavy horses trained in particular discipline worth more money around here (and noone really care about papers in dressage or, say, fox hunting anyway as long as horse is nice and can compete). Simply because there are lots of riders with weight limitation who look into such horses.

    True everywhere I think, big handsome horse without papers, and without any skills are worthless, big lawn ornaments.

    A big solid riding horse though, as you say always in demand

    Then just train him. If the price of the horse is one of the concerns with proper training I think Ben will worth more than either mare.
