 What would be a reasonable price for a gelding with
-Numerous NBHA wins/places.
-Runs 1D-4D depending on rider/level of competition
-Gelding, early teens, 15.3hh
-Requires some minor maintenance
-Somewhat earshy, has a few little quirks
-loads, bathes, good for vet/farrier/dentist
-Good conformation
-AQHA registered
-no gate issues
-push style
-NOT a bucker/kicker/rearer/bolter
-Trail rides
-devilishly handsome
He absolutely LOVES to run barrels. I wouldn't recommend him for very young/inexperienced riders (has been ridden by young teens with a few years of previous riding experience), but is perfect for someone just learning to barrel race or someone who just wants an extremely straight forward, consistent horse to run. He won't run by a barrel and will only go as fast as his owner asks. He can get excited or have the occasional spook (just kinda jumps but won't run off or anything real bad) but is 100% ALL BUSINESS when it comes to barrels. He knows what he's doing and doesn't require tuning from a professional. He's a one person horse that was abused when he was very young, so requires a rider that understands that and is willing to bond with him.

No gate issues, push style, LOVES to run barrels. Good conformation, loads, bathes, good for vet/farrier/dentist. Is AQHA registered.

I have one like that and to me he's priceless! Will be interesting to see what others say.

Ok, I updated my original post to be a little easier to read and cover more info.

I don't have any of his competition records, just because his old owners did all the competing on him. He's just been a teacher for the past year.

1-4d is a wide spread

The quirks would worry me, as what some people can handle others can't. This leaves a lot to interpretation

Limited market as not kid friendly

Since it sounds like no rescent 1d stats, this also devalues the horse as some may say he has slowed down.

The minor maintenance, since no specifics, this can also be worrisome as what does the horse need, how long, what has been done rescently. Some people maintain horses a lot better then others.

Without any current 1d stats I would say no more then 5k

I know he's a unique horse, and he definitely needs a special person. I just don't have any sort of ballpark estimate.
