I have come upon tough times financially and I am trying to cut costs where possible, Stardust is my last resort. I do not want to sell her, but I am thinking that I may have to.
Stardust is an 8 year old Jockey Club Registered Thoroughbred. She is a gorgeous red chestnut and an absolute doll. She can be ridden both english and westen, however she hasn't mastered neck reining, but does a pretty good job for the most part. She is off track, running 10 races, with 2 wins, 2 places and 1 show. She has decent bloodlines and fairly good confirmation (I believe). She is a very easy keeper, Only needs her feet done every 6 months at the earliest. She was pastured from 3 years after being on the track, and has been ridden consistently since October of 2012. She has a lot of hours on her, she rides out alone and in a group. Crosses bridges, will jump over any fallen trees, or 3 feet across water. She has no formal training for jumping, but she seems to LOVE it! She has a lot of get up and go, and really loves to trot and canter. She does get a little excited if she's running with another horse who keeps getting in front of her, however she will whoa when asked. She does get a little prancy after being allowed to gallop full out, but is quickly learning to calm down faster and faster with each ride. She is calm enough that my two year old can ride her around with me leading her. She stands great for the farrier, stands to be bathed, groomed, saddled, and poked by children. She has a very kind personality and reminds me of a big dog.
Her only fault is that she is very hard to hold back if another horse takes off in front of her. For this reason, she does need someone who can handle her on the trails, or if on the trails, she needs to be with another horse who isn't going to take off. If another horse runs into her butt, she does occasionally kick at them, but not enough to unseat the rider. She rarely spokes, and when she does, it's nothing terrible. She is great with kids, 4-wheelers, is used to cars flying past right next to her. Doesn't really like dogs, but tolerates them.
I think i've covered all the basic info needed. What do you guys think would be a good starting price if I decide to sell her?
