I've got a question for you. I am wondering how much money my horse is worth. I'm not sure if I'm going to sell her yet but in thinking about it so I can advance with my barrel racing.
Anyways, she is a 15hh papered quarter horse. When I bought her I was told that she was a trained barrel horse running 2d times. Well, when I got her home I found that the person I bought her from had really over worked and pushed her. She wouldn't pick up the correct lead, she wouldn't stay at a decent pace at any gait (I.e. She bulls off at a lope) and she holds her head very high. I have been working with her for a year and I have put about $1000 into training so she is getting alot better. She still needs a calm rider that is patient though.
She ran at the bottom of 4d at a local barrel racing compition with about 500 riders. I was very proud of her because she placed to run in the finals.
So how much do you think I could get for her if I sold her? I originally paid $5000 for her. She is 10 by the way and has an amazing red dun buckskin color!
