Nice Hanoverian for sale.. opinions? (not mine)

Hey everyone. Well I've seen this ad a few times while browsing equine.com.. needless to say, if I could, I would snatch this horse up. Such a good project with so much potential and not TOO bad of a price. Only $10,000 and he's 5, almost 6 (a little old to just start training though). He's also 17.1 hh but soo beautiful! What do you guys think?

Hanoverians are slow to mature mentaly. It wont have done him any harm to be left a bit later!

Probabl over priced for what he is but I don't know horse prices round you!

Gorgeous horse. Look at those beautiful long legs. Way too rich for my blood though. Hope he gets a good home where he can reach a great potential.

Yeah that's true. Someone I know actually said that in general, warmbloods tend to take longer to mature mentally versus other breeds. That was a couple years back when I found a SUPERB oldenburg that needed to be immediately sold for only $4000! But yes, I really wish I could get this one because he looks like he could be a really perfect jumper.

He looks very nice. Good conformation. Don't like the fact that there are no under saddle pictures. Physically he looks the part but as mentioned above warmbloods are very slow to develop, but he'll probably start growing up mentally since he is 6. But taking a horse from nothing to a show animal is a very long, frusterating and expensive task. Not to mention time consuming. But hey if you have experience with greenies and have the time why not? He is beautiful though.

At 5 years old, almost 6, why are there no photos of him under saddle, or in some sort of training? They have photos from 6 years ago up (cute, but unimportant and very irrelavent), but no working photos?
[Yet another] Pet peeve of mine. If you're going to spend the money on a photo ad, why not put photos up that depict the horse at its best? Spend $30 on a new halter, groom the horse, and show photos of what the horse's training, or potential training, is or might be in. If I'm looking to spend ten grand on a horse, I expect a little more in the ad, or I might skip right over it.

Comes from old established bloodlines that are not popular that much anymore.

Priced a bit high.

I understand that wb's bring in the big bucks but prices are down EVERYWHERE the market is, well, terrible. Definitely do some local research before buying a horse off dreamhorse or equine now sites. They are way over priced. I was about to by a beautiful, well bred arab gelding off of dreamhorse for $3000, a deal to be sure. I never dreamed I'd find BETTER bloodlines and same conforation/movement in my backyard or $800. Private sellers are usually more motivated and sell for cheaper than you have EVER dreamed. I never thought I'd be able to buy a well bred, under 20, healthy and capable horse for under a grand until I opened my eyes. $10K is a lot of money...And in my experience, you don't always pay more for the better horse. He is nice looking though, just sharing my experience :)

Ii don't think the horse is broken hence why no photos of him under saddle!

Even if not under saddle, one would think he's had some training to prepare him, something more than him standing in a pasture - even liberty shots showing his movement, or jumping through a chute. No matter anyways, just a bit of a rant haha
