Price reality check for myself...

Okay, I have a mare for sale... she is a few threads down. I would like to know what my fellow horsepeople believe would be a fair selling price.

Pros - Min 9yrs experiance as a riding horse. Professionally trained in dressage up to second level. Jumping experiance - not sure height, around 3" - 3'6" I believe the previous owner mentioned. Sound and healthy. Very responsive to aids. Excellent ground manners. Laid back and easy to handle. Registered.

Cons - Mare (personally I like them better but they tell me geldings are perferred). TB -- not sure why this makes a difference but it seems to, 16yrs old, has only been ridden twice since last fall.

Thats really about it, she's a nice mare but doesn't suit my breeding goals and I don't have the time or energy to ride.

What I'm looking for is what you believe a fair asking price is and why.

When I read this, I was thinking in the $2000 - 2500 range, but that is very dependent on location. I see you are in KY, I am currently in PA but was in MI before that - so my market is similar to yours.

The fact that she is a mare and a TB bother me not one bit. 16 yrs does drop her price a bit though, but she still has a good bit of time in her. However you run a breeding program, so how long has she been out of work for?

I just got her last fall and have ridden her twice since then. She was fine both times but I haven't had time to ride like I hoped. Once my second and final mare foals, any time now, I'm going to get back on and tune her up. With level of training I don't imagine it will take much to get her back in form. If only it were that easy for my out of shape body
