Question Appropriate Pricing

So I have been searching for a second horse for jumping and I have found one that in my opinion is suitable.
He is a 6 year old thoroughbred that has been jumped up to 3'10 however as his current owner (who bought him in the last year) has not been able to work him enough, he has started refusing jumps (which I can deal with). She payed 5,000 for him after his then owner decreased his price by 3,000 from 8,000. But this was when he was a confident jumper that was jumping without hesitation. So I have been talking to her and she was saying that she was looking to regain 5,000 with his sale. My though is, if she bought him for 5,000 and he was jumping consistently and was calm etc, why would she want to sell him for the same price when he is refusing jumps, pulling back when tied etc. What in your opinion is an appropriate price??

BTW In Alberta horse prices for horses who can jump starts at around 2,000.

Thanks :)

There is no way she will get 5,000 for him if that's what she paid when he was going well.... unless some idiots comes along. If she boguht him for 5,000 with him nicely jumping and at a decent height and now he's doing those things I would say approx 3,500

I agree with AfterParty. $5,000 is ridiculous considering refusing jumps, pulling back etc. I think that a resonable price could be anywhere from $3,000- 3,500, depending on how wonderful of a horse he really is.

I agree with them. Say she actually bought him for more and now she dropped the price to $5,000, because of the potential he still has, then I think that would be reasonable.
