Isn't it funny that when you are trying to sell a horse, everybody thinks it is worth $500. When you are trying to buy a horse, everybody thinks it is worth $10,000.............

I would say that it depends on her training and her soundness. A dead broke, reliable riding horse that is sound should sure be worth over $2,000. Most any trainer charges at least $500 per month and it will take at least 3 months to train the horse.

I would offer the horse at a higher price. If she doesn't sell, take her to a few shows, and try again. You can always lower the price.

If she is really calm and reliable don't go too low bc you want the new owner to find value in her. I'd say, like Celeste, go high and let the buyer negotiate you down. I wouldn't sell her for any less than $500. If she had been for sale a couple of years ago, I would have bought her. So SICK of horses with holes in their training.

I know the felling!!! We bought her as a 2 yr old to use as a WP horse, got some training on her but she became just a pleasure horse instead:) so I'm sure if we sell her, they'd find a hole somewhere....

She's a pretty girl!
But the price just dends on what the area will support. In this part of the country I'd guess about $1000 for a reliable saddle horse...but it really comes down to whatever someone is willing to pay.

The point is you won't get a great deal more for her being registered since it wasn't done at the appropriate time, when she was young. Every once and a while APHA will offer lower prices just to get their registry numbers up, but they are few and far between. What I can't understand is how people think they will be keeping this horse forever and not considering that life and employment and riding needs change. I just can't understand not paying the smaller price for registration and members fees and generally not having to deal with dna when the horse is under a year and instead waiting til the horse, which is now much older will require a dna cost, along with a higher registration fee and a membership fee.

In our area right now, no one would buy her even for $500. We are still in the middle of a hay drought.

I have a couple of times purchased those horses people chose not to register and ponied up and paid the fees. Generally when the horse was sold I would just break even when you considered the fee cost. Needless to say I don't do that anymore.

here you would probably get about 800 depending on who is looking at her. Being breeding stock far from bothers me, but I have friends who wouldn't even look. Being grade well ya can't ride papers but I tend to like mares one because in my opinion I bond with them better, they give more heart, however that being said that leaves more options for the mare if an injury occurs then with a gelding. Her being unregistered may would prevent me from buying her then again it may not I have found myself looking at geldings lately lol! Back home you would be lucky to get 300 for her, but I see horses go for 150 there all the time(which is very scary to me) I'd start about the 1500 range but I don't know what the prices are where you are.
