Another Pricing Thread, and have you ever used an Equine Appraiser?
Has anyone ever used an Equine Appraiser? If so, who did you use? Did you feel they were competent? Were you happy with the results? Price range for how much it cost?
I'd also like everyone's opinion for what you think the following horse is worth RIGHT NOW. I know what he'd more than likely be worth with training, etc., but am a little stumped by what his current value might be. He would be a resale project, not a forever horse. I'm more than comfortable with "fixing" the issues he has, just need help figuring out a current value.
5 1/2 year old Dales Pony Gelding. Very large for his breed--15.1 hands. Very nice disposition, and conformation. Lovely movement for lower level dressage (maybe up to 2nd level-ish), and a cute, if unenthusiastic jump online. Could possibly do some very low level eventing. Very green under saddle--less than a dozen walk/trot rides. Severe trailer loading problems. Has never been off the small farm he was bred at. Has wedged himself under the butt bar of a trailer twice now.
All opinions are appreciated. Thanks, guys!
