Thanks for the input
Yes, I am in New Zealand and prices do generally seem to be almost double to what I see advertised say in the states - unless you are wanting a TB, if they haven't been trained in SJ or dressage then they are dirt cheap.
I know that with the owner that had her before the current lady she did dressage so she is trained in that discipline but I'm not sure what else she has done. I don't think the current owner has put any additional training into her, she has regular lessons on her, hacks, road rides and takes her to ribbon days. She is a good little jumper but I don't jump much these days.
For me she will just be a pleasure hack and I really do love the fact that she is the exact size I want and has no spook which is a huge thing for me. Has more whoa than go which I am fine with but is still responsive with a lovely soft mouth. Floats well, no vices at all, great feet and has been very well looked after.
Looking online at similar horses has been a little hard as they tend to get snapped up pretty quickly but I have seen a few that were priced around the same - some for more although they were a couple of years younger. I have seen older schoolmaster types advertised for around $4-5000.
The owner also would like her saddle to go with her as she has a hard to fit back so that would be an additional $800 for her saddle, bridle and cover.
Its a tough call for me to make, I could pass on her and keep looking but I know I will probably be waiting awhile for something similar to come up and quite often they get brought by the first person that views them.
