I'm selling Painter and getting new horse, which means my parents lose out on a LOT of money. I was showing my dad some classifieds ads, and he doesn't get why one horse that jumps courses is $25,000, and another is $2,000. He is convinced that they can do the same thing so they should be the same price! (And he's and experienced horse person) Can you guys help me make a list of what makes a horse more expensive then another?
How well it does at shows
What level of showing (a 4-h horse and an 'A' horse are not the same)
Who is selling (the right connections can greatly increase price)
Form over jumps
