I am really sorry for posting a "how much" post

, but I'd like to have a few opinions on how much Castle is worth. Thank you

He's a 128cm, grey, Irish Sports Horse (that's what it says on his passport

), and is 12 years old. He has no vices, is easy to box, shoe, clip and load. He has hunted a lot, and has done some dressage with me and a lot of Pony Club with his previous owners. He has jumped 1m20cm with me. He is bombproof and hacks out on his own or in company.
A few photos:

I would say with todays prices, you could easily get £5000 for him. As he is what any child would be looking for to go out competing, and a mother likes to have a safe, sensible pony who has done everything. Also people now think the more they pay the better, safer they are, obviously this is true to some extent. He could go on to do BSJA, hunting, pony club, family type etc... Depends if you are looking for a quick sale. Although I will probably be proven wrong and everyone saying half this price.

People will pay a lot for such a person! I'd ask £5000, and maybe take £4000.
When it comes to selling him I would try through your pony club and hunt first, the good ones rarely need advertising!

Best thing is to have a look around the internet sites, horsemart, horse select, horse deals, Horse & Hound etc and that will give you an idea. Once you've decided on how much you want for him add a little more. People always like to get a bit knocked off the price.... then both you & your buyer will be happy. Good Luck

Are you thinking of selling Castle? He looks a nice sort, have to admit though I think in Ireland we get less than similar in UK..

No, I was just interested to know around how much he'd be worth. I was thinking of loaning him out at the end of next year, as I'll be far too outgrown for him (I already am now
