I came across this ad by someone I follow on facebook. This grey warmblood cross is advertised for sale at $20,000. I am skeptical to say the least. Please educate me if I’m not seeing it, but this horse does not look like it would be able to fetch $20k, especially in the recessed economy. There’s nothing wrong with the horse, but he is not presented very well!
In the picture he is shown at the walk on a loose rein. He’s not on the bit, nor is he showing much of a topline. I don’t get much of a feel for his movement at the walk. Wouldn’t you think you would get a picture at the trot with all four legs extended or a lively canter shot? Even better, maybe a shot over crossrails or a small jump!
He is listed as a warmblood cross, but there’s no reference to his breeding. I guess some people are suckers for a warmblood, but still, $20k seems like a lot! He is listed as a dressage or eventing prospect, and again, $20k is a LOT of money for a horse that doesn’t know how to do anything!
