How much do YOU think he's worth?
I am not selling this horse, nor do I plan on selling him any time soon. I would just like to see how much you think he is worth!:-)
Stellar Moves, aka "Moose" is an 8 year old, 17.3 appendix gelding by Starman SL. Located in southern Florida, Moose has traveled across the USA competing in AQHA hunter events (working hunter, equitation over fences, jumping, hunter hack, hunt seat equitation) and has earned over 200 points in open, novice youth, youth, and novice amateur events. Moose has a complete baby personality, and is always a little kid favorite. This gentle giant is a completely made horse, has the patience of a saint, and is a 100% baby sitter. He has had kids from the ages of 6 to 11 jump him over fences, and love him! Automatic lead change, can jump anywhere from a ground pole to 4'6 with ease, stands for farrier, vet, and falls asleep for the braider. No vices, loads like a dream in a trailer, and gets along with every horse.
Some of his accomplishments are:
-2010 All American Quarter Horse Congress CHAMPION youth jumping
-2010 All American Quarter Horse Congress Finalist novice youth hunter hack
-Has been nationally qualified for the 2009-2011 AQHYA World show
-2010 AQHA year end honor roll Reserve Champion youth limited equitation over fences, youth limited jumping, and youth jumping.
-Countless circuit championships
-Multiple state champion, reserve champion, and top 5 champion
Moose has gone into the grand prix arena in level 0, 1, and 2 and has won each time in (no big time classes, always last minute "fun" decisions). Has gone into very few rated hunter shows, and has always been in the ribbons. He is quiet enough to go straight from the jumper arena into the hunter arena and does very well in both. Moose gives his all every time he steps into the arena.
So what do you think? :-P
I couldn't even begin to guess. He's a beautiful horse, though, and it looks like he is doing spectacular in the show ring. You're very lucky to be his owner. :-)
It's funny, because when we got him, he didn't do anything. All he did was a little bit of showmanship, and walk trot HUS. He did not have a right lead, couldn't be in an arena with other horses (he would try to buck me off whenever they would come near him), spooked at everything, and did not jump.
He's just so talented, he's come so far in 3 1/2 years! I really appreciate the comment:D
I don't know what breed show people look for in a horse, so I really couldn't give you a price estimate in that range. He does look like a strikingly beautiful horse, and I would want to see how he moves to give a full opinion, but the only bad things that I see as an opinion from myself are that I would not personally want a horse that would be used for hunters to have to go in a twisted wire snaffle. He doesn't drop his head down as far as I would like to see for an "A" rated hunter, and he doesn't seem consistent with his knees, but the few pictures you posted don't always reflect their jumping style. It looks like he is quite accomplished for his age. Assuming he is a Quarter horse, 17.3hands is HUGE! lol. If he is as versatile as you say he is, then he could be worth the big bucks for sure :) Just my 2cents, if I offended you, then I am sorry =/
We have also gotten offers from USEF hunter trainers from anywhere from 45grand to 65 grand (which was baffling) but rejected each time because they were before major shows.

i rode a horse that was on the circuit in the HUS novice classes. he was a lil over 16 hands. bay. QH with some TB in his predigree. he sold for 10-12 grand. he was super gentle too. almost anyone could ride him.
The congress is the worlds largest single breed horse show, an winning it is a huge accomplishment. Anyone can ride him, like I said, he's 100% made! But thanks everyone for the nice comments on him, I really appreciate it!
Also, just for the record, where I live, a nice novice horse that is AQHA proven goes from anywhere from 15grand to 30grand. I wouldnt sell him as a novice horse when I do sell him, because he is a big horse and, like every horse, can have his "big horse" moments.(;
