Do you think that this is a good deal?
So a girl at my barn sold her mare last month to a 9 year old girl who rides at our barn for 25,000$. They THINK they got a good deal for this mare, but quite frankly, I do not. It's not really my place to say how much she is worth, but I would just like to think how much you guys think she is.
Here's a description:
17.1 hand mare, out of the last captive (AQHA registered, incentive fund). Very broke, with probably 150 points in novice youth, youth, and open AQHA hunter events. She has gotten placed top 10 at the 2009 quarter horse congress in the youth 13 and under hunter events (equitation over fences, and working hunter). She has jumped up to 3'9 and has done well on the hunter circuit. Broke, with okay movement. No health issues, though she is only a 5 year old (started when she was 3 over fences and under saddle).
Now, the girl has only had her a month or so and the poor mare is already messed up to the max. I never thought it was a good idea to sell a young horse like her to a VERY VERY beginner novice rider. But like I have said before, it's really not my problem. I think they thought they got a good deal on her because the girl and her father were talking their ears off saying how she was worth "more than 40 thousand". So what do you think?
