How much is my gelding worth?
Im wanting to find out how much my gelding is worth because I am getting him insured :) Heres some information on him.

Name: Smokin the field

Pedigree: Smokin The Field Paint

Age: 7 HH: 15.2

George is a 1D/2D barrel horse he makes constant low 17's on a standard pattern he so far has made 2 16.9 this year and 1 16.8. He isnt HOT going in the gate and loves to run! He was a lead trail horse for 2 years in Aspen and in Arizona for 1 year. You can rope and drag a steer off of him, goat tie, and sort. He loves to be around people and is vary smart. He isnt buddy or barn sore in fact he loves to adventure out to new places more then stay with the other horses at the barn. He has been hauled all over the country even to Canada. He isn't afraid of much, you can put a full tarp all over him and he wont even flinch. Great with opening and closing gates when your on him. He works of leg pressure, You can rise him bridle less/bit less. I run him in a loomis gag bit. He runs around 23's in poles but he doesn't like them vary much. Best horse to catch he will come trotting or loping up to you in a big pasture. I have had beginners and kids ride him with no problem, one of my lesson kids ran him in barrels and they ran an 19.0 he took care of her the whole time, he made sure to go around the barrels slower and run slower because of her ability (she was pushing him to go faster but he knew she wasn't ready for it). Never has been lame a in his life! Only has never been sick once and it was just a virus going around (cold) and recovered vary quickly!

(sorry pics are not that good all m good pics and videos are on my computer that crashed :-( )

what can you replace him for? Different areas may have different values. If I were to guess I would get a 5K policy but if you tried to sell him you probably couldn't get that would be my guess depending on many varibles

In my area he'd go for $2,000 - 4,000 dollars.

I was gonna say around 7-8k!

I would be giving him away at 10,000 in my area. Horses have not what so ever gone down in price here. You cant touch a horse that runs constant low 17's for no less then 8,000 here and that's the ones that are not good at any other things

Where abouts are you? Up here in Alberta he would be at least a $10,000 horse.

haha. people that dont barrel race are funny.

a horse like this that runs low 17s and high 16s on a standard pattern, is going to bring in $15,000 ish. plus or minus a few grand depending on your area and what else your horse can do and his pedigree.
