actually if you (in general, not you) work on a spooky horse, 99% you can make them less spooky.

Hmm around here? Probably 100$ at most... there are a lot of well trained ponies for kids, and with his height, only a very small person could ride him, but they also have to be experienced. He's a nice color... but not being able to be caught REALLY brings the price down in my mind.

Yes alwaysbehind he just needs a little bombproofing. You can make horses unafraid of things.

You can train them to be unafraid of certain things, but a reactive horse is always going to be reactive. You can't train that out of them.

Besides, the only truly bombproof horse is a dead one.

There is no such thing as a bombproof horse. As long as they have eyes, ears, and a sense of feeling - they can and will react.

Carriage accident in Iowa is proof of that.

I never said he'd be unafraid of everything. The more you get horses used to a lot of differant things the less afraid of them they are. Yes he'll always been somewhat spooky.

I say between 200-600 you say he's definitely green, I don't think he will be completly safe for a rider his size by next year

Well next year, depending how far he has gone and if he is actually jumping 2 feet then maybe you could get 1000 but it would depend on where in alberta you sell him cause edmonton's markets are overflowing with greenbroke horses and jumpers so prices are a bit lower

He is no eyesore, cute little thing, maybe if someone with a lot of time would take him on as a project he could jump right over his hurdles so to speak and make a very nice small horse. Since he hasn't been handled much it might be he would turn around, I don't know he is just cute as a button. Out of curiosity I can never remember what is the "weight" rule on a horse? There is some formula but as usual whoosh I forget.

I wouldn't take him free at this point - 9 years old and rank green? If I were selling him I'd price him at $200 and hope he meat price isn't worth it.

Sorry - not what you were wanting to hear but a PONY is generally though of a kid's ride - and that means MANNERS are a MUST! Fix his issues, get him pushbutton W/T/C then his price would go up quickly.

Hard truth to face there, but it IS true. He's too small to be worth something to an experienced rider looking for a "project horse". I highly doubt, if you have had him all this time, that you will be able to get him to the level where he could be a safe child's mount by next year, if ever. As SR said, a reactive horse will always be a reactive horse. I have the same issues with my abused rescue pony. He's pretty, but pretty doesn't make much for market value. With a good couple years serious, daily effort put in, he might make a good pony clubber for an experienced youth. But that means putting in a lot more effort (and $$ on a good trainer) than you have given him thus far, with not too much of a return on the cost put out. But he is your responsibility, you raised this horse, it's your job to give him the best possible chance at a future, rather than just unloading him because you can't be bothered.
