I do have a purchased ad on BHW for this horse but very little interest so I am curious how you all would price this horse. 8 year old registered. Started lightly last year and running 3d times with under 10 runs on her. sound and sane. Intermediate rider..... What price range would you expect to pay? I paid 2500 for her before she ran barrels at all. Thanks for the input!

Bloodlines? height? Color? Does she pick up leads freely, flex? Side pass? Easy to stop? Hot headed or more calm (1-10) scale? Any issues? Lead, load, tie, etc.? I always want as much info as possible listed on a horse, otherwise, I will admit, I overlook them, even when they are priced fair. You may have the price right but the ad worded wrong. The more information, more photos, more videos, the more views and responses. :)
Without knowing the background on the horse, I purchased a solid sorrel 5yr old AQHA mare, registered, with few pattern runs on her (she was running 3D), and I paid $2500 for her. Also ran a great set of poles. You could put anyone on her to ride, but needed an intermediate on the pattern. She ended up a 1D horse. Her bloodlines weren't that hot but they were good enough for me (Dirty Venture/JackStraw lines). She only had an issue of pulling back when tied (randomly), otherwise they would have asked $3500 for her.
The better the bloodlines, and more time the person has put in, the higher the price.
I'd say about $3000-$4500 for as little information as you have given for a price range. :)

She is a 4 on a temp scale. Loads, hauls, ties. Flexes, counter arcs, all that jazz. butt in the ground stop. I have her priced at 4,000 with partial trades accepted on small child safe ponies... Thanks for the input, I will check the wording in my ad.
