The best thing to do is to put some more value on her. Get the registration done now, continue training her, and good, flattering pictures/ videos are a must. Get good conformation shots and a few nice artistic-type shots, maybe of her profile, of her moving, etc.
If you show, try to trailer her out to shows with you- it's good advertising. Even if all you do is walk her around, it's good enough.
As for her price, it's what people are willing to pay for her. I can't say what I would give you, since I don't know anything about her, but for a greenbroke 4 year old who isn't fully registered, I wouldn't pay much. Horses like that are going for a couple hundred dollars where I live, or being given away.
Are you in a hurry to sell her, or do you just want to find her a better home and are willing to wait in order to find it?

Sort of both, lol. We are going to start trying for a baby this fall, and ideally I'd like to have her sold before I get pregnant since that will greatly limit what I can do with her. My trainer agreed to ride her and get her "finessed" once I have her going well on the flat, but she (my trainer) is also very busy (aka flakey) so I don't know how reliable she'd be. It all looks good on paper, but when it comes down to the reality of it all there is a chance that she won't get ridden as much as she needs to to keep her improving.

But, finding her a good home is my top priority. She loves to work, so I'd love for her to go to a show home. I am not currently showing right now, but have considered going to some local schooling shows once she's a little more trained just so she has that experience under her belt.

Well, congratulations on the baby!
Is it possible to find someone else to ride her, just so she gets more experience? If your trainer can't commit to her, I wouldn't do it- find someone who can definitely put that on her and isn't too busy. And if your trainer shows, you could always ask if she could tag along to the shows, if you can't go yourself, so that you know she's in capable hands but is still getting out there.

I would only pay about 1500 for her, if that! Mind you the market for horses is really expensive in alberta

n'aww. You're sweet ^_^ Kenzie's and my journey sure has been...interesting, to say the least! lol.

What about free leasing to a capable teenaged/young adult rider who will be riding under a trainers eye, if in fact your trainer can't keep riding her? It could be a half lease or full, whichever you preferred, and it could easily add to her value. You could even do a lease-to-own if the person leasing her really liked her.

I looked at her in the barn. I'm assuming those pictures were her as a yearling? If so I don't think she's half bad looking, and she's probably make a cute little low level show horse.
