Andalusian cross mare - What would you expect to pay?
My aunt is having to sell all her horses and she has an Andalusian x Peruvian Paso mare. My aunt had big plans for her and worked with her a lot 5 years ago so she has about 5 years of ground work, was saddled and layed across, but never ridden. She is well bred with Champion bloodlines. Her sire is Bravio and her dam is Diosa del Sol. She is registered as an Andalusian and I believe she can also be registered Peruvian but the papers were never sent in. Unfortunately she has been sitting in a pasture for the last 5 years with little work. She's healthy and well fed she just got put on the back burner. If you were selling her in this market what would you price her at and what would you expect to get in her current condition? Or if you were looking how much would you pay?

She is a pretty bay, about 16hh, and big bodied. I can post a pic in a little bit.

Can you get some pictures that arent looking down at her and on level ground? In those pictures she's rather strange looking in my opinion, with SUPER tiny feet which makes her worth drop a lot to me, but it may just be an illusion.

In my area she'd probably catch $1,600-2,000 if marketed right, merely because of her breeding and absolutely nothing else.

Is she gaited at all? How old is she? How are her ground manners?

She may be registered as half Andy in North America, but is not registrable as a PRE, the Spanish registry, so for breeding stock is not worth much.

As a riding horse, papers don't sell for anything, especially with how the economy and drought is right now. An unbroke horse that's been a pasture puff for the last 5 years is probably worth as much as she weighs I'm sorry to say.
Good luck selling her!

Wow I can't believe I forgot her age lol. She is 10 now. Ground work and saddled the first 5 years and then pasture the last 5 years. My mom took the pics so this is what I have to work with. I know she is not standing level at all in the pics :-/ The horse is an hour away from me. She is really friendly, in your pocket type personality but I have never really handled her so can't say much about her current ground manners except I'm sure she'll need some reminders. My aunt is much more knowledgeable about her obviously but she is basically MIA right now due to life hardships.

Thank you for the input so far. I was thinking list at $2200 with room for negotiations so it seems like I wasn't too far off. Shame she had to sit so long.

In the Southeast you're looking at "meat price."

In most other places if you got $500 for her you'd consider yourself very lucky.

A ten year old, unbroke, half-bred mare is pretty much worthless, no matter how pretty she is or how much people love her.

Well looks like we found someone to buy her for $1000. Young guy looking for a bigger horse for trails and doesn't mind training. Good home and that's all that matters. Got lucky! Thanks for the input.

I'm glad she found someone but Guilherme is right in that a unbroke horse especially with some age, isn't worth much. No money in breeding so you won't be able to sell as a broodmare and a mare that is 10 and never bred will not settle well even if there were a market. Trained well seasoned horses of color sell best but most of the time you can't get what you have in them with today's economy.

Got a picture last week with her being ridden. Apparently he tacked her up and got on her with no problems. She acted like she had been ridden before. Only had lots of good ground training though. He got lucky!

That's a good price you sold her for. I bought my Andalusian cross for $500. She's 16hh. She was a little girls first level dressage, hunter, endurance horse. And then she was used as a children's lesson horse, and did pony parties. She is 10, and she's a flea bitten gray. So ya'll did really good with that sale!
