Is my horse priced to sell?


Here is the link to his equine ad: Sorrel Gelding Equitation Quarter Horse for Sale in Laplata, Maryland | Buy This Horse at Equine.com

He is HYPP N/H. AQHA Points: 29.5 Open Halter, 88 Open Performance, 45 AQHA Open All Arounds, 119.5 Youth Halter, 364.5 Youth Performance, 67 Youth AQHA All Arounds. Just wondering if you thought he was in a good price range? Thanks!

Hard to say in this economy He seems to have the credentials. At that price I would get some better pictures on the for sale ad personally. At our barn we hired a girl that only charges $50 an hour. They came out super professional.

I don't know. Its hard to say and I don't typically look at the higher priced horses - they are out of my price range since I mostly trail ride. Your best bet would be to research horses with similar credentials and bloodlines and see what they are priced at, especially the ads that are marked "sold".

I would also take out the photo of your horse laying down and replace that photo with a good conformation shot - directly from the side with the horse squared up. Most people want to see that shot specifically, especially for any horse they want to use for performance or show.

I don't know... It all depends, Sister Clu has been listed for over a year now and I've noticed her prices keep dropping. I don't think now is a sellers market. I'd run it and see how many hits you get... I'm thinking it's high for this area right now though..... But you never know....

Thanks. I will see if I can upload a few more pictures but I don't have many that are not awards photos. Farm pony - I think sister clu is over priced personally. Many people don't want palominos for the QH shows and the PBHA world champions/reserve champions I have seen are priced lower than that.

IDK, with the economy I think people are moving away from large purchases. I would recommend pictures that show him off better though.

Not to be mean, but the pictures of your head and him and then the one of him laying down are really cute, but that's not what you want to pay to have on the sight. Buyers want to see all they can of him without doing any extra work. I'd put shots that either show him in action or ones they can use to asses his conformation

Hope that helps

One picture of him squared up each side. One of him straight on showing his legs
Chest and head. And one from behind with him standing squared up with his tail
Out of the way so you are showing his legs.

Then maybe a few of him just being him.

I think you have the right price for what your horse has all earned but it is going to be tough for people to come up with the money at this time. It doesnt hurt to run the ad and see what happens.

I've seen this horse at shows actually (And sister clue). I think this horse is priced right, it just depends on if people have the money to buy. As for the video, he looks like a million bucks in a show.

As for Sister Clue, I agree... I've watched her and I love her, think she's cute and has a great personality for a kid, but I think she's more of a 12k horse.

I would think he is priced a bit high because he is HYPP N/H....
