Quick replies appreciated, does this sound like a fair price?

He is a AQHA registered sorrel gelding, nine years old. She's only had him four months, but that's because she was downsizing her herd. She was selling her mare, and this girl fell in love with her and asked to trade saying he's a solid 2D horse and he does this that and the other.

He turned out as a 4D/3D horse with POTENTIAL, not the training. She tried contacting them about it, no answer. So she tracked down the previous owners from before them and they had owned him for seven years.

He was a solid roping horse, but now he gets spooky and freaked at ropes. Plus, the people who sold him as a 2D horse said he had alley way issues. Both his current owner, and previous owners who has him for seven years says he never has so much as jigged in the alley way. Leading them to believe he wasn't treated the best.

She says, he is doing good on the barrels and mainly just needs to be hauled more. He has a sensitive mouth, and gets annoyed in you are in his mouth too much. He works off your legs and seat very well, and neck reins. He is road/traffic safe, doesn't spook often but even when he does he's one of those "Jump then look" horses.

He ties, loads, saddles ect. All good.

She had him priced at 5,000 but is willing to take 4,000 maybe even less.

He is located about an hour away from me... Do you guys think his price is fair?

I would not pay anywhere near $4K for a horse with 'alleyway' issues, got upset if you got in his mouth, spooky around ropes etc etc. Not even maybe.

That's the deal, he doesn't have alley way issues. His previous owners where either lying or causing it. Because his first owners of 7 years had no problem. And his current didn't either.

I don't want a roping horse either, but she was working with him on it too and he's better.

Quick answer, no. Not a fair price. 2k, maybe.

And basically, he doesn't like being jerked around the barrel. All he does is toss his head. He just responds better to legs and seat and neck reining. It could even be maybe his teeth need attention.

Well, sounds like maybe you've made up your mind already, in which case, go for it if you feel the price is fair. For me, if I was convinced they were telling me the truth, I'd make arrangements to ride him at a barrel race near their home to test ride him. And in this economy, with the drought only supposed to get worse, I was going to say, $1000 to $1500 MAX. But, I freely admit to belonging to Tightwads Anonymous.

No, I haven't made it up. I Was just making sure I said that.

There is also a four year old thoroughbred mare. Who is trained on them, but needs seasoning. She's a good teacher, works off your leg well and all that. Doesn't like you in her mouth too much either, and she's 4,000.
