After 3 and a half years of serious riding & owning Jess(i was a beginner wen i got her) i have decided that i need 2 sell her. When we bought her we did wot a lot of new horse owners do & just took tha sellers word for it that she was a good beginners horse. & after walk trot & cantering round the arena i thought so 2. well i havnt ridden her in an arena since. Ive ridden in steep & sloping paddocks that i could only trot or canter in facing uphill. Jess was a 4yo Standardbred mare 14.2hh. now she is 8yo 15hh. & being a beginner i couldnt train her & she got worse & worse. I taught her a few things like reinback & turnback(as they call it in western riding). I also taught her 2 jump. So she has learnt stuff, but has also been a handful. I have been bucked off so many times & almost evry time i landed on my head or my back. im lucky that the worst ive been hurt. So ive decided 2 sell her. She's stuffed my confidence & i always get freaked out now, coz she always bucks & has no ballance. She also doesnt like loading on tha float But on top of all that, she is easy 2 train but i just dont have tha confidence 2 do it, she has a HUGE scopey jump & under tha rite hands i can see her becomming an awsome X country horse. She is a very pretty black (well almost black) mare. She hardly bites any more. & doesnt kick any more. So what i mainly want 2 no is how much would she be worth in australia? & if i spend a few hundred dollars(the money i woz gunna use 2 buy a new saddle with) to get her trained so that she does all her paces nicely & jumps about 80cm with a rider on her back( for sum reason she jumps better wen im not on her) and loads on the float, how much would she be worth then? I would really appreciate sum help soon because even tho i will miss her heaps, i want 2 buy a new older and well trained horse wen we sell jess that i can learn 2 ride & not learn 2 fall off. I cant even go riding with my friends because i cant get her on the float. Thanx heaps!!!
