"hi im ashley and i was woundering if Abu would do well in barrels and pole bending and pleasure riding riding and im looking for a first horse i dont mind training if had nine years of riding traning etc and im on a budget is would you mind going down to 1500 dollars? hes a beatiful horse"
Crazy people!!! When I was looking for horses for sale, I would send the owners an email stating that I was interested, and then asked for any additional photos, videos, and I had a short list of questions, as far as behaviors, age, and what they thought the horse was/would be good at. After I got a response, I asked more questions that were important to me.

But I did use periods, and didnt make run on statements, I also didnt ask for a lower price in the first email, let alone at all! LOL

When I was doing hunters it was common to see that. It still is actually. We were think of maybe selling our horse Jesse when I was around 10 and he was 8. Since I was so little, he was so big, and we were winning, we were getting offers at $20, 000. Keep in mind, Jesse is just a mutt and we were only showing 2ft and under.

I think it all depends on the area you are located.

Mind you, a $15, 000 Christmas present is a bit much...

Here's the thing, though. Finished full-size jumping horses around here that are warmbloods or warmblood crosses are going for $1000-4000 and they're usually jumping 3ft or higher. Arizona isn't a big English riding state, when you get right down to it. I'd expect to see $15K on maybe a high-end AQHA stud that's winning in the show ring or in reining or something like that...not on a kid's jumping pony. Just saying.

^^Exactly, it's all about location. I don't know anyone who would spend $500 on a kid's jumper pony but I know lots of folks that would spend $5000+ on a good cutting bred horse that's broke or a patterned barrel horse with some speed.

Oh, boy!!! I'd love some gold champagne color to go with that skinny neck, big head, and weak hip :roll:.

BROKE 3yr old Gold Champagne Gelding - $7500 (CANYON )

And YEP, I am SO gonna pay $750 for a 4 year old that isn't even started yet...just because he's a roan :roll:.

2007 Blue Roan Gelding - $750 (Clarendon TX)

Date: 2011-10-16, 1:44PM CDT


This registered roan gelding is out of San Speck and Patty Jet Bug....goes back to Sugar San Stormy and Speck of Dee Class and I'm a Jet Deck. He is nice looking, 15 hands, and is not broke, but could make a great horse for the right person. He doesn't have any cuts or scars...comes when you whistle and will eat out of your hand! His parents were used for roping and cutting.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

*amigo the freego* great arena horse - amigo

"amigo needs a new home i cannot afford his needs. he twisted his hind pastern and broke it. he is a companion horse until new owner can treat it. he barrel races, trail rides, he rides in a hackmore only, hes very sweet. TO GOOD HOME ONLY. has some trailer problems. i am doing what is best for him. he is 9yrs old and needs someone expiercienced to take. he needs more ground manners. he is somehwat flighty. if you have a gelding atleast 5 years old and is broke and he is 16.2hh and very gentle and loads and barrel races i will be willing to trade with you."



Oh, sure, I'd be happy to trade my gentle, well broke, sweet 16.2h barrel racer for your companion horse with poor ground manners and a broken leg that's been untreated for ??

They probably said that, because when a roan gets a cut their hair comes back solid (no roaning)
