Especially with the Scottsdale Arabian show coming up, I'd list him for $2000 or best offer and see what you get. Arabs seem to be more "fashionable" down in the Valley than they are up here in cowboy country.

And I stand corrected. My best friend's gelding is 10, not 14. Lol.

he's quite the looker! If I had the space, I'd take him in a heartbeat -- no matter that he's 8 and just started - I train my own horses and his training wouldn't even be an issue for me and his age is perfect for slow 50's. You should try Endurance.net classifieds. There are many riders like me who prefer a green horse that age that they can train themselves just by taking them out on the trail for a couple of years and putting the miles on them. Money is tight right now for everyone but if you were looking for a good home and job as your first priority with price coming last, the endurance crowd might be a market to try.

If I had not just bought a horse I would be interested in him for Endurance! Most people in Endurance do not want a horse already started in the sport. Most Endurance riders ( me included) want something that we can train to ride like we want them to. Hence I just bought a mare that is almost 5. She is broke has had professional training for show. Has been shown, but never stepped foot out on the endurance trail. And honestly I like that. Now I can focus on training her to do the stuff I want her to do on the trail or in the vet check. I don't have to fight with a horse that already has bad habits or tries to do what the old owner had trained him to do. I would definalty get someone to start riding him that way you can say he is being ridden.

I don't know how to mass quote everyone so I apologize for not putting the names but thank you so much for all of your replies! I don't know the first thing about endurance or where someone would do that in my part of AZ but i'll see if I can find someone to lease him and try him out on it. He jumps and he's not afraid of anything (so far lol) and he's very curious and willing. I'll also see what I can do about advertising him in other places, since that's something I didn't look into or think of before.

I appreciate all of your comments! Please, if you think of anything else, post away! I'll quote personally to some of the posts tho. :)

Would you mind if I gave his stats to a couple of friends of mine? One is a trainer who does endurance and the other is big into the Arab world in the Valley. They might be able to spread the word about him in their circles and find an interested party.

PLEASE DO! I would be grateful if you did that! And if they are interested in more information or pictures or different videos I can supply those as well through email if they prefer. I want him to go to a home where he will get to do things and show off his fancy pants self. :P lol

Talked to the guy who's at where I board my horse. He said he'd take him up to the mountains and work him on trails and see how he does. He also told me that Ulti is very intelligent and never runs out of energy (based on the small work he's been doing with him out of the saddle). How much do you think is fair per month for him to work Ulti under saddle and possibly help me sell him? Thanks!
