I have decided to sell both Whisper and Persia, for pretty much the same reason. They are both too green for me. Persia seriously bucked off her trainer on Saturday. There was no way in hell for her to get it under control, that's how bad it was. Even though that is the first time she has done anything like that, or even bucked at all with someone on her back, I just can't see myself being comfortable with her. Not with my level of experience.
I was originally only going to sell Whisper due partially to the fact that she only had 30 days put on her. Persia having 60 days, I thought, would have made her more managable. Her trainer got thrown and landed flat on her back. That's all I needed to hear. I don't think I'll be able to keep my nerves under control enough to ride her.
I'm at a place in my life right now where I would much rather just get on and go for a ride or start doing what I really want to do, which is barrel racing. I need a horse that can be that for me.
So this is what I'm trying to do, I'm selling Whisper for $1000 as a 3yr old, green broke with 30 days, registered half arab. I've given myself a little room to come down on the price some. She has no major issues and is actually very good under saddle, just not what I'm wanting for myself right now.
Persia is being sold for $800 as a 6yr old, green broke with 60 days, percheron/qh who cribs. Also given myself a little room to come down on the price.
I have also been listing them together as a 2 for 1 trade if anyone has something that would work for me.
So I was just wanting to know what anyone thought of my prices. I also wanted to know what anyone thought about the fact that Persia cribs, and how hard it might be to sell her just because of that fact. Any and all thoughts or advice is appreciated, thanks.
