have you done any dressage or cross country with him that would make him worth more.

Nope. He's learning shoulder-in's right now, but that's as far as his dressage work goes.

Maby between 2 and 4k. The worst problem is thier are so many out thier for sale and people are willing to give them away almost. I would suggest doing a equin.com search on sale horse that are similar to yours and see what the prices are before you set your price. You don't want to go to high or people wont call and you don't want to under price him.

live for the moment.

How big is he? Without other pictures, I'd agree with 2k-4k. He looks cute though :)

If I were looking for a horse to buy, I would first and foremost want to know his size/height.

Also, if you're going to say in the ad "jumps 3' feet" the photo should show him jumping close to that. I'd also want to know if that's individual fences, or if he's jumping 3' courses and what his record is at the shows he's been to.

All of that affects price, as does your region of the country, so I can't give you anything hard and fast. Anywhere from $1000 - 4500., depneding on all of the above.

I'm not selling him, I just wanted to know how much he's worth.
He's 15.2, and I just put a picture on there that I had on hand so you could see what he looks like.

I've been jumping him individual 3', 2'3 courses, and he's only been showing for 2 show seasons. The first season I did all flat, he was always in the ribbons, and the second show season I did crossrails with him and he got champion and reserve champion at every show.

We're in Georgia.

I would guess $1500 - 2500. Not all that familiar with what prices are in your area.

The real deal is that any horse is only "worth" what an individual is willing to pay for him/let him go for.

You might sell this horse if someone offered you $4k, or 5k or perhaps only 1M would do, or perhaps you'd not sell him for all the $ in the world.

If you were going to put him on the market, then you do the numbers (economy, age, training level, etc.) to come up with a reasonable price.
