How much do you think my horse is worth?

I am just wondering what my horse is worth. Both at the moment and with the training a finishing she will have over the winter. (I need two different prices). I might sell her, I might not, It really depends on the price, the home, and if I can find another horse I like. My reason for possibly selling her? She is a brilliant horse, and I am just getting into english. She has so much potential and I feel like I am just dragging her down, she tolerates all of my mess ups but I know she gets aggravated by me, She has a lovely personality and is very friendly, I just hate to see her go to waste. Even with my funny training she is still so easily re-trained and understands all of the things Sarah does.

I live in Central New York

Iris:
  • 16h
  • Percheron X Arabian
  • Bay
  • star and snip
  • one coronet
  • two white hooves
  • barefoot
  • born june 8th, 2008


Background:
I bought Iris as a 3 year old mare from a couple who had foaled her. She had been ridden a little (walking and trotting on the trails) in western in a hackamore. Her Dam is a (I'm pretty sure registered) 17h Black Percheron, her Sire is a 15.1h grey Arabian stallion. Her Sire was bought at the auctions but without his papers (the previous owners did not want his bloodlines to be used anymore). When I bought her she was quite bomb proof (you could shoot a gun off her back).

Her training:
Has been jumped up to (never over) 2' 9"
Can be ridden bareback and in a halter (or in a combination of). Is working with Sarah Casey of Waltzing Horse Farm (dressage and jumping) at least once a week.
She does walk trot canter under saddle nicely, though she can sometimes have a problem picking up the left lead coming out of a jump. We are working on her lunging (this will be done before I sell her). She rarely ever refuses a jump unless the rider does something seriously wrong or lets her fall out. She will jump from a standstill (instead of refusing) if the rider looks down sometimes. She backs up very nicely both on ground and under saddle.
She mounts from either side but does move a bit (this is getting fixed atm). Because of her conformation, getting her head down has been very hard, but sarah got it down and in and it has stayed near there without any help (this will be fixed by sale)


Temperament and vices:
On a scale of 1-10: 6.5 (I think, I might be scaling wrong)
She will let you stand on her, will take a baby, will let you hug her butt, let random people pet her, travels well, will travel and then ride in a brand new arena immediately after and be fine, is great with other horses, will let anyone ride her, not herd bound unless left out in the herd and untouched for long periods of time. Can be stalled, can be put out in pasture, or a combination. Doesn't mind outdoor arenas, trailers, buildings, tractors, 4-wheelers, amish, construction. She has 3 vices (and two of them is hardly even a vice), she doesn't perform at her best when an arena gate is open and she has to go by it, she is nosey and will untie and unlatch things, and she can be a little fresh sometimes (typical of a 4yo).

Over the winter etc:

Over the winter and into the spring we will take her to clinics, shows, and schooling shows. She will learn her leg yields, and work on more collection, impulsion, balance, speed through jumps.


Sorry if this is a lot of information but I feel like too much is better than too little.

Please just tell me if you need a certain piece of information (:

I live in Alberta, and a horse like her would go for about $4000 right now, and probably about $5500 next spring, more depending on how she does at shows!

Wow thank you! I actually bought her for $800 underpriced because they did not know her potential.

I don't know enough about dressage to recommend a price, but she looks and sounds like a really nice horse.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.
