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!
