Okay they stopped in today and their farrier took him to try and sell him while they went on holiday, but he still isn't sold.
They have dropped the price down to $1500.
The farrier said that because he is an ex trotter he canters with his front legs but trots with his back legs, so no one wants to buy him.

I find that pricing quite high. I know a few people at my stables who have gotten great horses who jump 2' easily at around 1000$

Heaven is the wind between a horse's ears...

I know what you mean I brought my horse who jumped about 1.6m and did pony club ect, For only 1000$.
But I don't think they will reduce it anymore.
They tried to sell there old Standardbred mare for 3000$ who they got for free and she untrained off the track and jumped at the slightest movement, in the end she went for 900$.

Yep, as ridiculous and irritating as it is, some people just have an inflated sense of the value of things. I tried to buy an old ruined saddle from my uncle's brother in law once. It was an ancient Buster Welsh cutting saddle, had been left in the weather, rain, hail and shine, hadn’t been oiled in a decade or more and the leather was so far gone it crumbled and broke if you tried to move any of it. But the tree was still good and I wanted to build a new saddle on the tree. He wanted a thousand for it. I told him he was mad, it was worth about 200 at most, even then I was being generous. He said “no, Id get a thousand for it if I sold it to someone else” and so I declined to buy it. The thing eventually got thrown out as far as I know. Sounds like those people with that horse are the same. Just forget about it and look for a better horse somewhere else, I think you’ll get it cheaper.

I was looking through an old Horse Deals magazine at the prices for horses like him and most of them were in the 1000 and under category ! and most horses that were 4000$ were pony club,adult riding club, or really good kids Pony's.
Oh and ever since they've owned him he's suffered from seedy toe the poor thing.
