Scarlet is a 5 year old tb mare. She is a 16.2 bay, she is off the track. I have owned her for a year. She is a great trail horse, jumper prospect and she is being trained to do contesting. She is 100% sound, she baths clips stands for Ferrier and vet. She is a fast learner and she loves to please you. She gets along with other horses in and out of the pasture. She knows how to lung on a lunge line and free lung. She also lunges in a round pin. She backs, squares up, pivots both ways. When you ride her she knows her voice commands and leg pressures. She will go from a walk to a canter both ways. She knows how to walk trot and canter and gallop on command. She is registered and she has good bloodlines. She would make a wonderful mother if you ever want to breed her. Her grandpa was Mr. Prospector
Let me know what you think she is worth thanks

Well,
It's difficult in this economy. The easier thing to do would be trying to settle with a good home as oppose to make profit. If I saw her on a market (don't take this number personally- I'm sure she's a great horse) but I would only look if she was 3,000 or lower. Hope this helps

I agree with AK1. Without seeing video of how she moves or what she's capable of doing, I would say in this economy in this area, somewhere around $2,500 to $3,000. To get her value up higher than that, she would need to have a lot more training, some show experience, and be a more "finished" horse.

Around here I would put her for about $1,500-2,000. Unfortunately there are a lot of ottb with not much training other than w/t/c.

OTTBs are a dime a dozen around here. As young as she is, I'd say $800-$1000.

You make her sound great, though, so maybe if you market her right you could get more.
I agree with both things here.

Tons of started in a new life OTTBs out there.

I think it's debate-able. I would start higher though. 2,500 at least. See who's interested. You can always go down, never go up :)

What do you mean by saying she is being trained for "contesting"?

To me she sounds like a pretty OTTB trail horse - $500 max if that much, at least around here.

And make certain you check your spelling when posting ads about her - spelling and grammer mistakes turn a potential buyer off.

horse prices in Scotland are down the gutter too we had two of our colts at a sale and one of our colts (both yearling's at the time) went for the same price as a 16'2 broken piebald gelding who i gotta say was one hell of a looker.
i'm afraid to say that your be lucky to make over 1000 with her. but as you said if you set your price to something and say that the price is negotiable you may be able to come to a reasonable offer

Depends a lot on where you are located. Around here, $1000 would be a good asking price, $800 an acceptable negotiated price. Without show experience and proven hunter/jumper abilities, it's really tough to get much more for an OTTB.

Well, it really depends how quiet she is. Without seeing video of the quality of her movement, I would be say about $2000 if she is a very average mover (small steps, lots of knee). However, if she is a very good mover (floaty) I would ask up to $3500. I saw some OTTB's a while back, and the owners were asking about $2000 each and they were barely green-broke, but were exellent movers and very good prospects.

Mct, this is a older thread. Do you mean to be bumping up old threads?

Is she a nice mover? I would need to see a video before I could say. If she is a really nice mover I would ask about $3000 tops.

Well... I'd say $500 to $1,000. Quite honestly, not many people like to buy horses in a bad economy. She is so pretty though and might sell for twelve hundred. Hope this helps and good luck!

I would probably put the asking price at $2000, but prepare to accept $1000. The marker is horrible, and she doesn't have much training. Best of luck.
