IMHO yes he is to high. He is 12 years old and from what she said doesn't have a lot of show experiance. So he's good with kids, a lot of horses are good with kids. You can find a horse just like him in my area for $5000-10000.

I'd say it's WAY too high! Quite ridiculous actually. This person sounds like they're basing the price on what they "think" the horse could do/should be worth.
Horses change over time & who knows how much competition experience he has under him & it's obviously been a while since the last time.
Just because they think he is/will be a great jumper doesn't justify the price. You can find better horses for way cheaper. If the horse had won several big competitions, then maybe...
I'd want to be guarenteed that this horse would win me money before buying.
Conformation & bloodlines dont always mean anything either.

"If a horse fails to do something that is because he was not trained to do it. If a horse fails to do something properly that is because he was not trained properly."

You can find quite a few horses like that around edmonton-calgary for much better prices. I found a horse that did 1.0m CET medal classes for 2000 cause he hadnt been ridden much for two years
