what price would you put on this boy??

i am seling my 16hh bay stationbred x irish hunter gelding
he is sweetheart and very gentle , would say a firm advanced beginners horse as will only do as much as asked and if you are not firm will take advatage but will nevr do anything nasty, he does amazing dressage with flying changes, leg yeilding, shoulder-ins ,walk pirrouttes , turn on the forehand and haunches and lengthening in trot and canter established will hack out on a buckle/loose-rein can go for a gallop along the beach and stop on the buckle
but he is not a vey good showjumper as he knows they will fall down if he hits them, so he he just doesnt bother picking his feet up. X-C ammaculate always clear and always trys his heart out, a good horse for an adult rider wanting to hack and do dressage we've had him for two years and i was a very nervous rider (was only 12 when i brought him) and he has built my confidence up alot as i know he will do nothing when he tries his little "tricks" (they are nothing scary just snorting and flicking our head like we have a bug up it , dragging our nose in sand in a free walk ,flicking our toes in the trot , and a small firm growl will stop him)
pictures to come
any help will be apprecitaed

hre are the photos,
the SJ one is at 90cm , XC at pre-training and the dresaage is from last winter
the ones at home in the paddock are from last month he is very safe as shown by me not holding onto my reains when doing my stirrup s(very naughty =P)
he sometimes overbend ands falls onto the fore-hand and also leans on the bit , but he does that only when he is being lazy and wil stop ehn asked to do xtra work or harder work leg yeilding usually stops it,
he is riden in a myler or french - lin snaffle for dressage show jumped in a myler combitnation but has been sjed in a snaffle and X-Ced ing a water-fid pelham or a normal pelham
he can also be ridden bareback in a halter but is very sensitive for the first coupl eof minutes and very tense then he mellows and cruises

In my area I would say he would be priced at 4000 - 5000 $. Maybe more maybe less depends on what time of year you would put him up for sale. How old is he and does he load and haul, stand for the farrier, vet wash, clip cross tie easy to catch? By your description hes laid back so probalble does all that so I would make sure to mention all that too.
He does sound kinda fun. Are you gettin a new one? Or just curious what he would bring?

That horse should'nt be bred.....it should be on the bread.

I'd say he'd be at least $10,000 around here depending on the success of his show history, what level you've been showing at, and his age. ;)

Id say anywhere from $4-6000 depending on how well behaved he is and how old. Also, grade horses dont sell for as much, so it depends on his papers also.

he is perfectly behaved for the farrier and will stand perfectly and even if he does misbehave a small growl and he will stop instantly, he clips and goes to sleep while you do it , he vets catches and cross ties easily also trucks and floats wonderfully he is 11 so is getting on but doesnt act his age =)
he has only been competing low level pony club stuff due to him being "un-clean" in his sjing so only gone up to pre-training (80-85cms) and has done low level dressage with me as im not a dressage person as per such so only done pre-lim tests but has done medium level dressage with prevouis owner but not sure of the success was always placed in top ten for dressage with me . .
im selling him due to me moving on from ponyclub to showjumping with my sisters horse and he is not a showjumper and now is sitting in the paddock going to watse and he is a to nicer horse to sit in the paddock. . . he is an absolute gentleman and loves to the the "one" which the worlsd revovles around he would suit showing as he loves to be fussed over!! =P
