the price is right?

Hi everyone..

9 year old, 16.2hh thoroughbred gelding. Unlimited jumping ability, currently schools 3'6 easily. Lovely mover, brave jumper. Excellent Lineage. Always in the ribbons, never below 5th. Has done 3 day in the past. Beautiful horse, really catches your eye. Makes the perfect hunter/jumper.


--Okay, so how much would you pay for this horse?

Well I'll take him off your hands... I'm sure he's a real pain. I'm thinking $500 would be a reasonable offer of me to make. Haha.

But for real, I'd say in my area he could go from anywhere from $6,000 to $10,000.

But that's just my opinion.

Is he a hunter or a jumper? how easy is he to ride? does he have a lead change? what kind of shows has he been doing? has he been shown a lot? (lots of year end awards?) how nice of a mover is he?

For a made horse, a decent 3"6 hunter that's simple to ride and has an extensive successful show record can go anywhere from $10-$25,000 depending on how nice of a mover he is. A fancy 3"6 hunter that wins regularly at the rated shows? Can go as high as $100,000 on the coasts, but generally around the $40-80,000.

It's almost impossible to price a horse without a video (even a picture isn't enough) but I'd guess around $10 - possibly $15,000 assuming he's got a lead change and is quiet to ride.

try to get in a low-ish offer, and just tell them how good your home is and tell them you can't go higher than that..that usually works.
but where i live, you'd be looking at A$10,000-15
