My friend wrote this up about my horse as an overview about him. --
Shiloh is a 7 year old polish Arabian gelding registered under CAHA, he is a chestnut with a big white blaze, one full stocking and and one pastern height sock on his front legs. He is 14.3 hh, but has a much bigger ego. He is almost always top of the herd but he gets along well with other horses after he established a pecking order. Shiloh has a high play drive, and energy level, he isn't not happy being a pasture puff, and if left so, will find a way to amuse himself. He is an average keeper, not hard to keep weight on, but also does not become over weight on extra pasture or hay. Very minimal health problems, past splint, and a couple abscesses, never lame on splint, only once lame on abscess.
Shiloh is not a beginners horse, and will be happy to decide what to do if not given direction for his energy and attention. He is willing to please, as long as you keep things interesting, trot around an arena for hours trying to perfect his movement and form, and you'll have a very grumpy horse, variety is the spice of life for him. He is not afraid of much and has been extensively trail ridden, loves to play in the ocean and water, jump, and go for adventures with his buddies.
He is ridden bitless, either halter or dr.cook style bridle, has good ground manners, and can handled by young kids under supervision. He is responsive off leg commands when ridden, and does not lean into you. He loves to learn tricks, and knows how to "shake a hoof" and is learning the Spanish walk.
Over all Shiloh is a great all round horse, good in the arena, good on the trails, nice to ride and handle, a pleasure to be around, and he loves to be around people. :)

Depends on your area. I'd say about 5-7k tops.

Around here you would probably only get about 2,000. But the horse market is not good around here.

Oh I dont know. Alot of people want a horse they can throw anyone on, he doesnt sound like that. But a more confident rider might like him so I would around $4000 ish.

Here are some video's of him on my friends youtube account. He can have bigger and nicer movement when asked, but we don't have any on video as of now. I have jumped him up to 4' (not courses). He has been ridden by every one from more experienced riders to young kids who are new to riding like my 5 year old cousin. She can trail ride him with out being led with no problem. He has been ridden bridleless, listens well enough to do a 2' jump course. He has also been ridden bridleless by my 10 year old cousin in the field walk/trot. Not many people ride him often but hes good when they do, the only things he doesn't like and will get a bit grumpy about is grabbing with your legs and really tight reins. He puts up with quite a lot, and is safe to have people anywhere around him, he doesn't have any spots where he wont let you touch him or will react if you do. He is very sane, and safe to be around. He would not do well owned by a young inexperienced person, but as long as he has a more experienced rider do "tune ups" and exercise him, he's very well behaved.

In my area, you would be lucky to get $1500 and that is only if you could find the right buyer. But then again, mine is not an Arab area.

I think he's gorgeous. Unfortunately there isn't much of market for a horse who is not beginner safe. In the right hands, or if someone were to come along who is specifically looking for a horse like him, then you've got a sealed deal-but even the experienced horses are not selling for much right now(around here).

I would post him for $1,500-2,000.

Perhaps putting some miles on him with some halter classes. I wouldn't mind seeing some confo shots of him. Doing some halter work with him might be something he enjoys, make him more sellable.
