How much is this pony worth? What do you think?
How much would a:
-registered section A welsh mountain pony
- 4 years old
- jumps 2'3
- has show experience=champion in x-rails and halter
-good on trails
-good for kids
-able to go into river with rider
-good for bareback
-can go western or english
This is a really flashy pony with both its sire and dam being champions. It has been a champion in shows itself and is extremely well-trained four-year-old
***if you really need pictures I'll add them
***he'd be between 4.5-5 when he is sold
So a four year old horse can do all that? I would question the horses health. 0_0 3 and 4 is usually when they start.
I agree with White Foot. At just 4 years old... I wonder WHEN he was started (and HOW his joints will hold on).
He would be started at 3.5-4 years old. At 3 -3.5 I would start building his muscles (no lunging yet because that is hard on the joints)
If it could actually be accomplished in a year or so, he'd be worth a pretty penny. Being a champion at a crossrail class isn't going to amount to much - any horse can do that. The most important things would be for him to be a bombproof childs pony and a pro in the showring, and a lot of people aren't going to believe you can get a 4 year old pony with those traits.
At 11.3hh he would be shown by a VERY small and VERY young child. The child that can really ride would probably be looking at a more expensive, more well trained pony and the child that can't ride probably won't be interested in a young pony that needs more training.
In my area? I live in Canada, and you could easily get upwards of $5,000 for him most likely. However, we have not experience the recession here as the US has, and you can still get $2,000 for a well trained trail horse.
Personally I'd never buy 4 year old 11 hh jumping 2+ feet. Because I have no idea how the joints will go in long run. I think horses should not be jumped until at least 5 years old, better 6 (well, I don't mind some free jumps though). But it's just me.
ummm horses can be started at two years...
well... im not sure a 4 year old PONY (those little buggers are usually moody as saiten!!! lol) is very good to be sold to a kid...... Im not sure about where you live, but ANY pony that has a fantastic tempermant, no matter what they can do, is worth his weight in gold and more, haha.
