    Gentle does not always translate to a ranch horse and ranch horse does not always mean a good kid broke horse.
    Glad to see that I am not the only one who was wondering that

    I have done a lot of desensitizing nicely built, sound, pretty horses who trail ride and know the basics in the arena and whom are regularly ridden by my young neighbors. Its kind of a hobby. Sell them for somewhere in the $1,500 range, usually close to what I have into them. Nothing about this horse screams that he is in any different of a boat. Honestly, most of the horses that we sell do not have to "run into" a canter like this gelding and they stop quicker. They've trotted ground poles and since our area is big on speed events most are started on barrels and poles too. BUT, it isn't to say that he doesn't seem like a nice horse and as many have said, I suppose he is worth exactly what someone will pay for him.

    I agree with what saskia posted .
    That horse might be just what they state he is a ranch horse. They are not marketing him for that buyer IMO. A good ranch horse can bring 5-10,000$ easily and is well worth it. Here in Texas there are plenty of good ranch horses available and demand is good.
    They can get more for it as saskia mentioned targeting other buyers. Shalom

    Around here there is a niche market for laid back, finished, do anything, go anywhere pleasure horses with the 40+ year old riders that are tired of eating dirt and visiting the ER. Even in this economy, you can easily get $5000 if you wait for the right buyer.

    I went to the website and read the description, it said he has had experience heading(it didn't say he was a finished head horse) and drug some calves to the fire.

    Honestly, if he was a good finished head horse that the girl could rope off of and showed so in the video instead of somersaults and dirt bikes that gelding could easily bring the $15,000.
    That makes me think that they are marketing him incorrectly or he didn't make the cut as a rope/ranch horse.

    I think these folks mean he is a ranch horse because he rode on a ranch once.
