    How Much Is She Worth?

    Hello! So, I'm thinking about buying a horse that boards here. Her owner has some financial problems, and can't care for a horse. She wants the best for her mare, though, so I stepped in and offered to help. As much as the owner would like to simply give the horse to me, I want to give her a fair price, so I came here to see what you all thought.

    Name: Prada
    Breed: Unknown (Any guesses?)
    Sex: Mare
    Color: Buckskin
    Age: 6 years
    Stands for grooming and bathing
    Picks up feet for farrier
    Stands for vaccinations
    Is currently up-to-date with shots, generally healthy horse
    Ground work:
    Backs for trailer
    Follows on lead rope
    Bridles easily
    Nips when being saddled (is ridden in Western)
    Walks, trots, canters (gallops if she gets too excited, doesn't trot well)
    Can't use flying lead changes -- always on left lead
    Sharp turns, like that of a barrel racer (Ooh-la-la!)
    Is afraid of jumping/jumps -- I got her over a 1-foot pole, but it took some convincing
    Does not stand patiently when being ridden (when at a stop)
    Occasional buck when cantering
    Nice lead-horse for trails
    She also spooks at things that move quickly, water bottles, and small children. Is not face-shy.

    How much, is USD, do you think she's worth? I own her saddle and bridle, so please do not add that in the price.

    Feel free to pop me a private message for any more information, or with a price -- I'll most likely respond faster!

    She does have a few vices, I'd say somewhere in the $500-$800 range.

    Yeah, I agree that she isn't that great, but I do love her, and I think training her will be a welcome challenge.

    your horse

    Sounds to me she's got not one bit of good training under her belt no more than 1000 because of abois weight issues, vices, and probably health issues.

    I'm not sure how your horse market is, but here I wouldn't pay more then $2,000 for her, since it seems like she has a few vices and not too much training undersaddle. She seems like a great project though!

    Being that she is grade and has a few riding issues I would say about $800. She needs a few lbs put on her as well. But for the most part she looks like a good mare.
