Help with horse sale amount

Hello All,

First off, this is only to satisfy my curosity. The horse I will be talking about is not for sale, nor will he ever be. I am curious about how much I could get for Rusty if I were to sell him.

A little about him:

He is a 13.2hh purebred strawberry roan appaloosa gelding. Loves the trails and will cross bridges and go through water. Very well behaved on the trails. He also LOVES jumping. We are currently coursing 2'6" and jumping 3' singles. We are almost ready to move to 3'3". He is very brave over jumps. He has jumped swedish oxers, hogs backs, fan jumps, corners, tarps and ditches. He has been cross country schooling once so far and he was amazing, jumped everything I asked of him. He has been to shows and he does pretty good. He behaves like a real gentleman. He has no vices (like cribbing or stall weaving) and he is an extremely easy keeper (no shoes and is fine on just hay) He is good with kids and he is used in the lesson program here. He is not for a beginner jumper though because he can be forward to the jumps.

Here are some pictures in case you've never seen him before.









So my question is, how much would you sell him for if he was your horse that you were selling? I have always been bad at coming up with prices for horses.

Thanks,
Horses4Healing

How old is this kid safe pony out of curiosity?
Different areas of the country would provide different sale prices.

It states above that he is excellent on the trail and that he also does cross country.

I seen that, but any contesting? Cow work? Pull a wagon or cart? Parades? Can be shot off of? Etc...

Not being rude, just wondering. Markets vary dramatically by region. As well as what a finished horse should have in its repertoire.

No cow work (he's mostly an English horse) no pulling carts but he does ground drive and could probably learn to very easily. He has been in one parade and he did fine. And no one has ever shot off of him but I do want to shoot my bow and arrow off of him once I get a little better.

Since he's not for sale, it's kind of a moot point, isn't it?

He's worth whatever you think he is, since you plan to keep him.

Is this for insurance purposes? If not, why worry about it?

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

I have to agree with everyone who's replied to your thread. Not sure what the purpose of your thread is, if you don't plan to sell him.

I don't feel anyone could answer your questions anyways, being people on this forum are from all over the continent and the world, and prices will go up or down depending on the demand for your area.
