true enough that warm bloods are fetching good money when sold accross the pond, but he must accomplish something that first makes him worth more than just a $500 hack.
First teach him basic flatwork, dressage, jumping and cross country training too, it is possible that he could sell for more as a hunter than just a jumper, or if you say he has nice paces then a potential eventing prospect, don't be affraid to invest in him if you believe he has the potential to return a heavy price tag.
The world of sports horses and I am talking highlybred ones can see a horse with average pedigree but huge ability sold for 50-60,000 or a foal with a pedigree to die for but its essentially a foal sold for 100,000, depends on how well you can train your horse? Will you need to put him with a proffessional to train him and get him to a sellable value?
Probably not helping here am I?
Also its a good thing he is not spooky or stressing, its the too much blood syndrome common in the sport horses of today off their heads with blood that means few can ride one side of them!!!
10k was a good offer, but can you make him worth more? I know of foals sold for more than double that by the same sire but they werebought by pro's to bring on and be produced, what was your plan when you bought your horse?
teaching your horse manners costs nothing and lasts a lifetime.
