How Much Do You Think She's Worth?

So i havent decided to sell her (not at the moment, anyhow) but i was wondering what you guys figured my mare would be worth if i were to put her up for sale.
A little info about her... I've owned her for 3 years
She's a pure black Arabian mare (not registered that i know of) with one white sock
17 years old
15 hh
Excellent feet! Never needs shoes on any surface
Trained western but has english experiene as well. She doesn't like a lot of contact with her mouth so she does best on a loose rein. Very responsive.
She neck reins really well & walk, trots, canters on cue, without hesitation though she's not constantly trying to run out from under you.
She was herdbound when i bought her but we've long since gotten over that & she goes well in a crowd & on her own.
She can be ridden bareback in a halter, out on the roads, ditches & highways with ignorant truckers speeding by & honking
NOT spooky & loves to be on the move.
She ferriers & loads with no issues.
Has years of gymkhana experienced & can runs barrels, poles, etc.. She will jump but not very enthusiastic about it.
I wouldn't say she's for a beginner, although i know she was used as a lesson horse in the past & i've ponied beginner kids on her. She's very safe, however she still has some spunk & like i said she doesnt like heavy hands.
She will lope circles, change directions, ect, but if you're jerking on her mouth she wont hesitate to give a buck to remind you to lay off.
She has been to the mountains & through ROUGH terrain & water & did fantastic! She also bathes, longes & is easy to catch

Sorry about the book lol
What do you think?

I would snatch her up in a heart beat. Around here she could go up to around $3000.

She is not a beginner level horse, she is not registered and she is in her late teens.
No way is she worth $3,000.
Black is no longer a huge money color in Arabians either, though technically she is just a grade horse because she is not registered.

I would put her value closer to $300 than to $3,000.

She doesn't look 15 hands in that picture but I would think around 800 - 1200ish around here....

Well, she sounds really lovely, and in England she'd be worth probably around 1500 - 1800 but that's mainly due to her age. If she was younger she'd be a LOT more. She sounds and looks just lovely though, and sorry I dunno how many dollars she's worth

Thanks guys. Dont stop with the suggestions!
I know it depends alot on the buyer and that the market changes depending on where you are. Around here (my area, anyway) most people do trail riding and some gymkhana whereas if you go a little south/south-east in Alberta there are more english stables but the western riders are pretty dominant in this province lol

In my area she would go around for 3000-4000. For 300$ in my area, you get an old horse with less than decent conformation and not much training. :/

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

My own Arab mare is a lot like her in abilities and attitude from what your description says, but she is bay and she is registered. She does more dressage and jumping. She used to win ribbons in barrells before I bought her, but I have never tried. Anyway..she was 12 when I bought her for a whopping $800 with papers. So I would say your mare is worth that much around my area.

She is absolutely gorgeous by the way!!!

In my area I think you could very easily get between $2,000 and $3,000
