Thanks again for the input, it's really helping a lot.

Apparently he did use to be racehorse, to what extent I am not really sure and need to speak with my trainer more about it.

After researching horses for sale in Texas (I'm in Austin) here's just three that I found comparable. The only exception being that you don't quite know their temperament until you ride them.

Gentle 16.2 TB Gelding Hunter/Jumper. - PeterPan

Refined Beautiful Jumper Currently showing 2'6" - Lil Miss Chris

Great personality, talented jumper, will take anyone around! - Monkey

Granted, some of these are a bit older then my potential horse.

So I guess my next move would be to offer something around $5000-$6500. I just feel bad offering less then half of what he's offered at and explaining that I think they way overpriced him. The seller is also my trainer.

I find that if people have a horse that is a pretty colour they'll mark the price up- and a lot of the time somebody will come around and pay for the colour. If I were you I'd go to your trainer and say that because of how much he's done, you'll offer 'x' (low end of your deal)- say you've done lots of research and comparison, and hope for the best. If not, then look for something else!

That's true color can jack the price up. 15k sounds like a lot. I rescue ottbs and retrain them in CA. With the horses experience I would say 5k but the right buyer might pay 10k. However, here in CA horses are going for much cheeper than they used to. With your riding experience I'd look into rescuing a tb and training it. For about $500 to $1,000 you can get a young horse with a ton of potential. Try Canter if your interested and look at trainer listings near you.
