I'm an eventer and I have a horse I'm looking to sell, just wondering what I should price him at.
Evented up to Training level in Canada (3'6)
16.1, 7 years old, Hungarian TB cross
Very handsome, good conformation, 100% sound
Lovely on the ground, very sweet, no vices, bathes, clips, etc.
However, he's not super bold. He doesn't have the heart to do the big stuff, which is a shame because he has all the ability. I was thinking of selling him as a 3'6 hunter/jumper to a good amateur or kid. He's a nice to ride, but not dead easy.
By not super bold do you mean not completely honest. The greatest price influencing factor for a junior or amateur horse is honesty. Is he going to make the effort to get off the ground in 99% of situations or is he going to do an unnecessary drive by or even worse get up to the base and sit on his butt. Is he completely agreeable, does he need a completely confident rider or can the rider be a bit apprehensive.
A 3'6 jumper is not nearly as valuable as something that can successfully go around the hunters and equitation.
And there's a big difference between hunters and jumpers. Without anything else to go on, my guess is this horse is likely not a candidate for hunters. Probably best thing to do is get him out to some jumper shows and see if you can get some exposure in the 1m-1.1 classes then price check accordingly.
