Price my horse!

This is mostly just for fun. I have tinkered with the idea of selling because it would just be nice to not pay $1000/month on a horse right now but I just can't part with him.

Anyway, 12YO registered appendix gelding, super sweet personality, anyone can ride. Carries himself in a perfect frame without being asked. Really great bloodlines (i can try to find his papers) 17.3+ with great ground manners. Currently not jumping much but he has shown successfully at AQHA worlds/ QH congress. Can get rushy at smaller fences, but wonderful form over 3'+ fences. Full auto changes.

In my area (NJ, PA, MD, NY, DE) he could go anywhere from $5,000-$15,000. Especially if he clips, loads, ties, stands well for the farrier, etc.. Especially since he is able to be ridden by riders of different levels. Have you ever considered talking to your BO for using him as a lesson horse in exchange for a deduction on your board or something? You could always half lease him if you really needed the money. He's a really cute looking horse btw, and he sounds like a gem.

I don't really need the extra money, it would just be nice to have the extra grand to throw around or save but he's worth it. His barn is a boarding facility only with no trainer/lessons.
We are located in Wellington Fl.

Forgot to mention that because it seemed like a no brainer! He loads, clips, ties, ground ties, stands perfectly for vet and farrier (trim and shoes) he is also currently barefoot but has had corrective (hot) shoeing in the past. No bite, kick, rear etc.

If he has decent movement on the flat, basic lateral movements (leg yield, shoulder in, haunches in, and turn on the haunches/forehand), tidy over jumps, good at shows, amateur/experienced kid friendly, and versatile enough to be used for jumpers, hunters, and flat classes... Around here he'd probably go for 20-25k. If he isn't versatile and needs a more experienced rider, probably closer to 15k, as that really decreases the market he'd be attractive to.
