    The palomino coloring alone will mean they can up the price. He's a nice horse, and if I wanted to buy a "safe" horse for my kid, I'd look twice at the video. But, that is a high price, even in this part of the country, where everything is more expensive.

    I think it's a lot of money for non-competition horse. However lots of people will pay for a "safe" horse. It's hard to put a price on safety for you and your family. They offer a range of horses and a 30 day trade back guarantee, which isn't bad at all. Plus shipping across the country.

    I don't think it's worth that much, in the way that I think you could get safe, equivalent horses for less. However, I think people will pay it, given the way their horses are marketed and their terms.

    Yes, I noticed that as well, and as you say, someone will buy him just for his color and that kids can go under his belly and such. There are aalways be those who have more $$$ than they do sense, and will consider him as a status symbol, to brag to their friends, that they could afford their kid a $15,000 horse.

    But why is he advertised as a ranch horse? Did I miss something?
    Gentle does not always translate to a ranch horse and ranch horse does not always mean a good kid broke horse.
    I looked on their website and they said that the horses start out as work horses on nearby ranches, and those riders send through the best, broke well natured horses and then they do their training with them.

    a horse is worth what someone will pay for it on any given day.

    First off this is NOT a ranch horse. Those are horses that you can rope off of, carry a calf on, work cattle with and that will stand up to the daily grind of life on a working ranch with a real cowboy aboard.

    Those horses can and do command prices over 40,000 as geldings of 8 or more years.

    This is a horse that someone has done some fooling around with and now are calling it a ranch horse when it isn't.

    As for CA? I wouldn't want one of his horses, and they sure aren't worth what he thinks they are either. Can't stand him.

    Trained
    If I were looking for a horse for a grandchild or for a friend. I would consider him. Its not his colour or pedigree they are selling its his training. I have friends who come out and see my horses and want to buy one . They have no experience with horses. This would be the perfect horse for them.
    Paying that much money for a safe well broke horse may not seem reasonable to some but it is money well spent for others. Shalom

    This. ^^^

    I don't think the horse is worth $15,000 but there may be someone out there who would pay that much for him.

    Sellers can price their horses however they want.

    I was shocked to see that horse valued at $15,000 dollars

    Here in the UK I think you'd be incredibly lucky to get 4-5000 for the English equivalent ($15,000 works out at about 9,500), and as others have said, it's not a "ranch horse", it's a kid safe horse.

    Over here if you go on Horse and Hound and look in the 9,000-10,000 range, you're looking at slightly older, well proven eventers/showjumpers/dressage horses, or younger, very well bred prospects who have gone out and done a few bits and done well.

    $15,000 for that? No thank you.

    *edit* In all fairness, the horse market over here is terrible!
