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.
