Horse prices, like most other things, are only as valuable as what someone is willing to pay, and vary tremendously due to a large number of factors. Around here, here are ranges for registered horses, excluding under $1000 or give aways that sometimes turn up very good horses.
$2500-$3500 - A good disposition horse, green to limited experience, but that you can ride from day one and don't need to invest in any more training unless you want to.
$3500-$5000 - A experienced, seasoned, go anywhere horse, typically 10+ yrs old.
$10,000-up - Horses with good show records or promising show prospects.
On the sixth day, God created the Quarter Horse.
On the seventh day, he Painted the good ones.
