Depends on where you are. In Ohio, jumping isn't overly popular, and you said she was consistant in her jumping and form, so I would have to say $5000 might be a good price.

Really? I was looking for something to do pony jumpers with last summer and into the winter and I found some great ponies in the $2500-7000 range. There were a couple up in New England that I saw in big eq for 20k but those were packer PJs in their early teens. In my area there is NO demand for PJs. Unfortunately there are few riders out there small enough and experienced enough to take a 13 hand pony through a 4'+ course, and there's also no need for it. PJs go up to 3'3-3'6 and sometimes the spreads are to 3'9 I believe. If I were you I'd get your pony comfortable going over a 2'6 course and market her as a medium pony hunter. There's a bigger market and you could put a bigger price tag on her too... especially since the Pony Wold Cup or something to that effect is being held in the US next year so according to my trainer and her friends on the east coast, hunter ponies are hot right now. If she couldn't pull off a hunter, start eventing her and then market her to pony club kids. Eventing is easier to gain experience with, (just school cross country and hack out a lot, don't spend a dime on competing) and again, there'll be a better audience than just trying to advertise her as a jumper.

Ponies are usually meant to have several purposes to keep their kid riders entertained IMO, and the ones that can do a few disciplines are more valuable and more sellable.
