In south Florida it'd probably be around 7500-10000 depending on where your at. My trainer just sold a horse that doesn't jump well, has no lead change, is a decent mover and good HUS, and has shown at the congress for 10,000. Which I think was a rip off. I thought he was ugly too.. But obviously the people who bought him didn't think so.
I bought my current horse 4 years ago for 6,500. He is 17.3, he didn't do anything. He did some showmanship, walk trot HUS and that was about it. He was a total lunatic, freaked out over everything, did not have a right lead, could not be in an arena with other horses without trying to buck you off and did not jump. It was ridiculous. But now, he's amazing!
I also bought my first mare for 5500. She was around 15.3, never spooked at anything, never refused a jump, was grey, pretty underneath and was the perfect first horse. We sold HER for 10,000 when she had some show miles, and was literally the perfect horse for a little girl. Nothing scared this mare, and she never refused to do anything! We rode her in a halter and leadrope bareback and jumped 3'3 fences.
It all just depends on the location and who's willing to write the check!
