What would you expect to pay for this horse: 8 year old, 16.3hh thoroughbred gelding. He is currently in training and going wonderful. He has excellent ground manners, VERY responsive to cues, goes in a loose ring snaffle. Leg yields, auto changes and jumping small courses. No show miles and we are located in Florida.
Is he a junior hunter prospect? Childrens? High Performance? Does his have the ability to be a top contender even as a tb? There's a lot of factors that could make or break a price. I'd say anywhere between 5-18k depending on the true quality of the horse in question.
He's a beautiful mover, can be a little lazy under saddle and will definitely be a youth mount. Free lunged over 4' fences with tons of scope and over jumps. No video right now. I really feel like he's got the potential to do anything and is so super sweet on the ground. It's very hard for me to ride him cause I'm on 5'1".
Does he have lead changes? Auto/easy/or not 100%? That will be a big factor in pricing.
He is nice looking, and a good size. Assuming a great jump and an auto change I'd say maybe 5-7.5k depending on the market. Changes if the rider sets the horse up properly maybe in the 4-5k range. Without changes and a show record you're looking at market value of 1-3k for a restarted OTTB that is w/t/c/started o/f.
Auto changes. After reading everyone's opinions I think I have him priced just right, I'm debating keeping him and showing him a little then listing him. He's a nice horse and such a sweetheart, just difficult for me to ride cause of our size difference.
