    How much is my horse worth? (FOR FUN!)

    I'm just curious, for the heck of it. Stitch is priceless to me, and I'd never sell him. He's got a forever home with me, but I'm curious as to what others would pay for a horse like him based on the background I'm going to give.

    So I bought stitch for 3000 as a finished head horse to retrain English. He is 9 years old (as of yesterday) a flashy sorrel overo paint, and 16hh pushing 16.1. Before he came to me he was a rodeo horse, traveling on the local circuit, until his rider went to college and his parents sold him.

    That's when I bought him (10 months ago) and began the transformation with the guidance of the best trainer in my area.

    He ties, clips, loads, bathes, takes dewormer and shots like a pro, and is a doll for the farrier. Although he does better with shoes, he could probably go without.

    He goes both English and western nicely, collects himself and travels really pretty. He can do flying lead changes, side pass, backs, opens gates, goes out on the trail alone or In a group. Jumps solid 3'6 courses, could go higher.

    Proven himself in the show ring by taking 1st in all his classes in his first show, and nothing lower than a 4th place at A rated shows.

    Never taken a lame step.

    Perfect for an intermediate rider, as he can get hot.

    He is a very personable in your pocket type horse.

    He's worth a billion bucks to me, but for fun, I'm curious as to what all the brilliant horse people on horse forum think!

    In my area, you'd probably get max 4k for him (probably around 3,500 realistically) because of his color. Horse's with his training are a dime a dozen, so they don't go for too much. A lot of lesson horses around me have the same training and more experience and they're generally in the 2k some 3k range.

    Probably aroudn $5000 atleast in my area, purely on experience, age and height alone. Forget color, since QH and Paints dominate where i'm from. If he were a beginner friendly horse, that would bump the price up quite a bit more ;)

    He's a pretty fabulous horse! 5000 or so sounds about what I was thinking too. Although one mom at a horse show wanted to buy him for 7000 for her daughter. I was like no way! Not for sale.
    He could maybe be beginner friendly, my sister with cerebral palsy can ride him, but but that's just walk trot. I wouldn't send her around a course of jumps on him
