Arabian Mare For Sale

I am selling my 5 year old Arabian mare. I no longer have the time or money to care for her, and so must find her a new home to continue her training, and give her love and attention. She's 14.1 hands, green broke, and needs a confident experienced rider or trainer. I got her as a big project horse from a crappy situation, where she knew nothing except having been roped down to do her feet, and has come a long way in the last year. She ties and trailers, I've never tried to clip her as I don't have clippers, but she's been around them with no problems. She picks up her feet great, is perfect for the farrier, and is currently barefoot. She has beautiful floaty movement, and a cute jump, and would also be good for endurance. She is not currently registered, as I have not had the money, but I have all her papers in had, all you need to do is send them in. She's by Alada Baskin I, out of Dreame Khatcher. She has Bask, Aladdin, Sir Victor, and Khemosabi in her lines to name a few greats. She has great conformation, and would make a great broodmare as well. I do not have any good conformation shots at this time, but I will have some help out at the barn on Tuesday, and will get some good photos. I am asking $4,000, but the price is definitely negotiable to the right home.

I think asking $4,000 for an unbroke, unregistered horse is extreme.

It's not quite as easy as just sending in the paperwork to get her registered, you know. At her age, it's going to cost a boatload of money. For non-AHA members, the cost is $375.00. For members it's $350.00.

She's a lovely young thing, but I think instead of worrying about money, you should do your best to just find her a good home.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

I looked up prices of horses with her bloodlines amount of training, and registered or unregistered, in my area, and the cheapest was going for 5k, most were around 6k, and there were a few going for 10-15k. I priced her a little higher than what I'm really wanting to try and weed out those who really don't know what they are doing, or who aren't really serious. And apparently rereading that ad didn't mention that she has been started, has about 60 days on her, and is doing really well. I'm going to have to change that on the craigslist ad.

I think the higher price will weed out some people that you wouldn't want her to go to. Just be careful with craigslist. I have had some good experiences with it but also had some scary people contact me. Including the drunk woman calling me 4 times and leaving messages until she was cut off at 2:30 in the morning.

Ya I just don't want someone looking at her going "oh pretty horse, pretty cheap, already started, how hard can it be to "train" her". I figure if someone really is interested, the price listed especially with the fact that I'm willing to negotiate, isn't going to deter them. I hope she finds a great home as well.

I saw this when you first put it up and forgot to comment, oops! I think she is absolutely stunning and will make a wonderful horse for someone. Best of luck selling her!

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.
