I'm just wondering how much my boy would be worth in north america since my family is hoping to emigrate to Canada in a few years and I've heard that european warmbloods are expensive over there.
He is a 16.3hh (nearly 17hh) 4, rising 5yo registered Zangersheide gelding, recently admitted for competition in France (and as such eligible for competition in all of europe)
Q-dee Wz Zangersheide is his bloodline.( Picture of him if you hover over the little square after his name.)
He was backed about 8 months with Monty Roberts methods and has always ridden in a simple snaffle. He will start competing next july at 2ft6 (80cm) and in September he's passing going to the 5yo 1st season circuit at 3ft4 (105cm).
I was offered 10k (euros) for him not that long ago by someone here in France and I have seen horses by the same sire going around 15k (euros) unbacked at 3yo.
He's not a 'classic warmblood' as he's not spooky or hot, but he possesses a stride that just eats up ground. He's built for jumping but he also has potential for dressage due to his paces and flexiblity.
So any ideas?
