So my barn owner wants sell Max this spring/summer. (I had him in the for sale area last summer I believe) So we were wondering how much do you think he would go for. 11 yrs old this march, registered "Lucky Max", sire is lucky two straws, puppy dog personality, has a lazy streak(needs intermediate rider or he wont move). We are thinking western pleasure prospect or trail horse/husband horse home. The reason my BO is selling him is because Max is too good a horse to let sit in the field and do nothing all the time but Max doesn't like barrel racing or speed events (he really really doesn't like them at all so the prospective buyers would need to understand he doesn't like spurs(we tried bumper spurs on him) and he doesn't like speed, he's a take it easy kind of horse). Hmm he's 16 hands, has gaits like a dream; smooth trot, easy flowy lope(didn't get that in vid cause it was muddy), works off of voice cues in the round pen.
What do you think you would price him at? By the way we're in New Jersey.
This vid really doesn't do him too much justice as the ground is still swampy from melting snow...you can see his feet sink when he moves but his trot is very, very smooth. Also this is the first time anyone has been on him since late july. Also he normally doesn't ride in a hackamore but I couldn't find his bit but he works just fine in the hackamore anyway. Oh and I felt like my reins were too long, does anyone else think so?
