How much would you pay for.....

Hi,
i'm currently thinking about perhaps selling on my horse, but if i do decide to, i wouldnt know how much to ask for him, can you please help?

9yo 15.3hh bay SB gelding.
Grade 4 everything at pony club & D grade showjumping, has the potentional to go further with the right rider.
Competes lightly, does everything you ask of him & if he doesnt know how he'll give it his best, quick learner.
very "un-standardbred-ey" dressage, nice rhymic canter & trot, hardly ever paces.
snaffle mouth all around,
good to c/s/w/, although does have some floating problem, but they can be easily fixed.
Jumping 1m+ & 90+ showjumping courses.
Bold and brave cross country, nothing fazes him.
Can ride him along the highway, and along the roads no problem, not scared of bikes, animals, tractors, young kids, trucks, buses etc.
Would make a good 1st horse for intermediate teenager wanting to get into pony club and competing, or good 2nd horse if you want to train him further up through the PC levels.



How much?????

As much as I'd love to have him for free, I would pay up to 2,500-5 thousand for him. He seems pretty good to me and he is just the thing I am looking for!

oh & also forgot to add that my reasons for would be because i think i have taken him as far as i can without me putting in so much more time, because of my experiance i would need additional help and its not what i'm looking to do now, i would really like to compete at a higher level.
But he would be perfect for someone who had the time & experiance to further his education as he is very willing to please and will give 100%, he would honestly jump the moon for you if he could!

I agree with Spyder...it's hard to give an ammount with no picture cause the price will depend on the comformation of the horse

Just from the description, and giving that he was good conformation..I'd say probably $3000-$4000 here where I am

Oh, yes, a photo.
I completely forgot about that sorry, here they are.

Sorry i have alot!
the first few are from a competition in June, it was a hickstead and showjumping.
In showjumping the jumps went up to 80cm we got a clear round, then next round was 90cm, we came in on the wrong lead and knocked the rail, but other then that all in the right time and an otherwise clear round, and in the end we came 6th! so it was really good anyway!

At the end of the day, he is still a standard bred and he obviously isnt going to be a top eventer / showwy but for pony club he is great!!!

Wow! Wonderful horse! Now that I have seen the pictures, def. 4-5 k! He's an absolute stunner!
No, sorry, I cannot afford him, if I had the chance, I'd love him for free . But you deserve what you get from him.

Good luck!
