Ok so I might be selling my 7 year old AQHA gelding and I'm wondering how much I should ask for him. He has been ridden on mostly trails I have brought him to a couple of arenas just for a change of pace but mostly trails. He has a really nice jog and lope and has never missed a step. Please give me your honest assesment. I know he doesn't have the greatest conformation. The pictures are from about a month ago so he has his full winter coat.
I have a video of him when he is in his fence I'll see if I can get it on here.
And yes he does have a cut on his leg. It is competely healed the hair just hasn't grown back yet. He got stuck in the fence but even though he ruined the steel fence and cut himself he was never sore.
I'm not sure how tall he is, I'll go measure him tomorrow. I would say that he would need an intermediate to advanced rider just because sometimes he will jump at things or refuse to walk towards something he considers scary. He is farely well mannered in winter and in summer he is really good. He is definately an agressive horse when it comes to other horses but with people he tries his best to please. Now in winter because I don't ride him much when I first get on him he is sometimes really spooky but in summer when I would ride him more he wasn't that spooky. He is sound and has no health problems. As for the market it all depends on the person. At a local auction I would be lucky to get $1000 and I don't really know what privately would be like.
I emailed a horse trainer and she said that I could maybe get around $3000 but that was only from what I've told her and some pictures I showed her. I'm thinking I'm going to get her to give me a riding lesson on him and then she can see what he is like plus I get riding tips.
