i he worth it??

Alright so I have fallen head over heals for outlaw.. even though I just started working with him again just about 2 months ago we have a great bond and he works so great for me! Now outlaw is a 11yr old arabian gelding he is an ex-racer and has done endurance now being trained for gymkhana and possibly some jumping. He is a honest little guy and tries his best to understand you. Since I started riding him I got him outta the giant curbs and gags they kept putting him in and put him in either a tomb thumb or a hackamore. He now trots and canters(somtimes) on a loose rein and has a great stop. Anyways he has been for sale since the day he got to the barn and the lady wants 2500 for him I haven't talked ot my parents or her about it but I would really like to buy him one day he has tons of potential and with more training could deffiantely be an all-rounder. Here are some pictures of him




P.s. In the side views he's kinda standing in a hole

I just have one question, is he registered or grade? I do realize he is gelded, but papers still give added value. Not familiar with the horse price ranges in your area so I am not going to comment on that.

A woman can NEVER have too many horses.....

I think he's a cute little guy, nothing wrong with him from what I can see. Since he has been on the market for quite some time, you might haggle with the owner a bit and see if you can get his price down but the only real question is whether you think he's worth it.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

I think I could probably get a discount on him considering the owner usually does that for us girls who ride out there. My friend sydney bought an arab mare for 1500(on payment plan) from her on a discount for riding out there. And the reason he's been up for awhile I think is that she doesnt post on other sites just the main page and she hasnt updated in awhile plus there is minimal info no age/breed/gender just what the horses compete in.

this is the site he is the 3rd one down..as you can tell by the other horse ads aswell there is not much to go by the only reason id even consider him is because I personally know him otherwise i'd probably have bipassed him

If YOU think he's worth the price then go for it. I'd definitely try to haggle a bit since you know the woman and seeing he has been for sale so long. Maybe she'd discount you more if you are boarding him there, or discount in exchange for you working there in your spare time? If you aren't showing him in breed shows it shouldn't matter if he is reg or not.

He is worth whatever you want to pay for him!

If you are buying him for you to enjoy and he does what you enjoy then his value is determined by whatever you agree to pay the seller for him.

If you are buying him to train and turn around and sell then you would have to do some math to see what the going rate for a similar horse is.
