How much would you pay for this pony?!

Wasn't sure on where to put this - so move it if you think some where else is better (:


I was wondering how much you all would pay for this pony of mine.

She is 12.1hh - 5 1/2years old - Grey? Very faint strawberry roaning - got her when she was 1, and was a strawberry little flecky thing.

Doesn't buck, rear, bolt, bite - will sometimes paw, but shes getting better with that everyday.
Very fast, but only when asked to be, other horses can bolt in front of her, and she will continue walking. and she can take off at a canter and leave the other horses, great to be ridden on trail rides by herself or with company. Walk and trot on a loose rein. Knows her canter leads and starting flying changes. Flexes and collects naturally.

Been to PC and Comps (Gymkhanas, hack days(showing) ODEs Hunter Trials Dressage days and showjumping days). Confidently jumping clear 70cm rounds, could go 90cm - free jumped 120cm Only jump her 60-70 because of to big of rider. Also jumps anything, Never refuses or knocks very confident and bold. Scoring 65-70% in Dressage. Got first at her ever led Show, pony class as a 3 yr old.

Walks through water, only puts her head down to sniff it, then just a 'knick knick' and she'll walk in.

Fantastic to wash, clip, brush, lead, tie, tack, Float (nearly self loads - and does when there is another horse in there) you can sit on her when shes in the paddock, eating etc. Can ride her bareback and halter.

3rd - first jump comp (70cm)- August 11'
4th - First sporting with two of her ribbons (purple one was first (:) July 11'

I think ponies who are so well trained and so well mannered are worth their weight in gold. The pony is a great starter for a young child just getting into riding because she is quiet, sound and willing.
Dont know where you are from so it is hard to put a value on her but definately not too cheap. She sounds like a babysitter which is hard to find.
Hope you find a great home for her with some deserving young person. Dont sell her too cheap. :)

I don't know the mare personally so I would say like 5k? Give or take? I'm not good at pricing :l haha. Shes got a cute little tuck to her and sounds like she is a great mover too! Very easy on the eyes as well :) Take her to some more schooling shows to get some more show mileage on her!

I won't even begin to guess a price, I'm a mostly western rider and in a different country ;)

I do agree with Annie though, a good pony is virtually priceless. Good luck finding her the perfect home!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I'm no expert but from the pricing I have seen recently for ponies so similarly trained and with great temperments I would say you have a good chance starting her at 7000 like you want to. THough I'm not sure which part of australia you are in.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.
But I will always love you Jimmy R.I.P

Thank you (: Didn't know a well trained pony was so popular!! I guess it makes sense, older riders want to train jumpers etc. and the ponies get trained by little inexperienced kids. (to an extent! ) some fantastic small riders with ponies!

If she were 2-3 hands taller (and in my area of the US) she'd be exactly what I'm currently looking for.
