TB Gelding in PA for sale

Thoroughbred Gelding, Chestnut
Chester County, PA
Offered for: $2300
Height: 16.1hh
Weight: 1200lbs.
Not registered, but has racing tattoo
4/10 Temperament
Markings: left hind sock, star

Special Effects, "Drake"

To good home only. I have owned Drake for a little more than a year and he was my first horse, but as I move up, he's not exactly for me anymore and I hate to see him go. He is 16.1hh and has a great temperament and willing with just about anything. He needs a rider that will tell him what they want him to do. He likes ring work and LOVES jumping and is eager to any fence. Would be a good prospect for jumper, hunter, pleasure horse. UTD on shots, worming, and has current coggins. He is an easy keeper. Clips, bathes, loads, cross ties. More pictures available.

I just don't have the money. =(
You should not have any problems selling him if you put him on other sites as well.

What is his tat? Like what are the numbers and letter?
    06-30-2009, 09:21 PM
I'm not sure what the letter is, because is too faded to make out, but the numbers are 34117. I think, I will double check tomorrow.

UPDATE: I've had Drake for sale for a few weeks, but only one response. They didn't like him at all. There is a girl that can come see him in like a month... she sounds great for him. I don't know what I can do to get the business moving. I feel like I should lower the price, but I still need a good amount to buy my next horse. Any suggestions? THANKS

Unfortunately with the economy the way it is right now, horses are completely a buyers market.

For $2300 someone can get a nice young Thoroughbred, or a nice show horse that someone may need to just get rid of quickly.
Your horse is 17 years old this year, right?
Unfortunately, I can pressume that that is one factor that is deterring buyers from your horse at this price. Most people assume (Not what I believe, but it is how many people think) that a Thoroughbred at that age is going to have leg/joint issues, due to racing and the wear/tear over the years. When they can get a younger Thoroughbred or possibly a young off-the-track project for that much or less.

Lowering the price would probably get you more inquiries. Hate to say it, but in these times its true.

Good luck!

I have to totally agree. My horse is a 7 year old TB never raced. I paid $1000 for her just because the owner/breeder who had her could not afford all her horses and I wanted to help her out. (honestly she was already mine for free but I wanted to be fair) In our area there was a very nice 6 yr old QH that was for sale for months. We looked at her when she was $3000. I passed but always thought she was a nice horse and just not worth that much. Well they just dropped her price to zero. There is nothing wrong with her but they lost their job. Someone is geting a great little horse for nothing.

That is just the way it is. What type of horse are you looking for? Perhaps you could trade. Maybe someone is looking for a calm older horse and you could train for more of a project?

Good luck.

Has he ever been shown?
There is a 15 year old girl at our barn looking for a quiet horse to show locally.

No, he has never shown while I have owned him, but probably has in his past. Most likely.

I have lowered his price to $1800 to give that a go.
