Where are you located and do you have any pics or video? Its kinda hard to judge, especially not knowing what part of the country you're in.

To answer that question accurately, we need a few things.

1.) Conformation pictures. One picture taken from the side of her standing square on flat ground, top of the head level with the withers. One picture of her from the front, showing her legs, and one from the back, also showing her legs, and with the tail pulled out of the way.

2.) Pictures of her under saddle. Does she frame up? Does she lack thrust from behind? If you're advertising her as a trail horse, pictures of her on trail crossing water, riding with a group of people, riding solo, etc.

3.) Videos of her under saddle. We need to see the correctness of her gaits, how she carries herself, if she comes up to the bit or fights it, if she's go-ey or lazy, we need to see that she is a calm trail horse.

4.) Videos of her in hand. Buyers want to see what she can do. If you say she does shoulder-in, backs up, and sidepasses, they want their proof in a video. If you say she does auto lead changes, you better post a video showing her auto changes.

The only way I could think of to increase her value would be if she was expert in a discipline. Aside from having a successful record, she is a nice trail horse and they are a dime a dozen in most areas selling for well under $1,000 (even less at auction).

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Agreed. Take her to some open local shows, enter her in trail class (if she sidepasses/shoulder in/turn on haunches she'd do well in this), start her English, the thing that's going to increase her value is versatility.

I'll have to get some pictures up sometime this week. Hate posting when she looks like a little rag doll!

She has been shown (just the local schooling shows though) since she was a yearling and has been to 20+ local shows. She has placed well in everything I've put her in. Showmanship, Western Pleasure, Horsemanship, In hand trail, trail, only reining (at the schooling show - no sliders or anything) once and placed 4th out of 21 horses.

lol She does everything I listed in the opening post nicely! No fight and she's calm, accepting, and willing! Shes just a good little horse that is lacking papers...And her confo could be better, but she's not out of porportion or anything, just not WOW!

Thanks everyone for your input!

That's something I'll do! For some strange reason I haven't done anything english with her yet
