For a friend, please help
I have a friend looking to sell her horse.... She hasn't made an add yet or anything just in the thought proccess of it.
She is thinking about selling her gelding cause she wants to just have an older trail horse that she won't feel so guilty about just having sit fir sone time if needed cause she has a kid.
So what would you pay for this horse?
7 year old not regresterd TB Paint
Right around 15 hands
Great ground manners, easy keeper doesn't need shoes. Rides in a loose ring snaffle. Can be ridding alone or in a group has jumped up to 3 ft but never shown (was her plan) has been in training with a well known local trainer for about 9 months, very balanced has flying lead changes and good lateral movement! Eager to jump but doesn't get to amped up, very manageable!
Is schooling 1st level and started on some 2nd level concepts. This horse is brilliant and has so much still to learn and offer.
Owner is in her late 20's married young and just had her first kid 6 months ago and this was going to be her show horse. She has had him for about 2 years, got him from a local person who was thinning out their heard, was going to be just a trail horse but she saw mor ein him and bought him for 800$
She wants to sell him to a home that will show him and keep up his training and wants to know how much ask. She hasn't even talked to her trainer yet about this as it's all just still talk.
Any help on a price range would be great.
