how much would you pay for Loki?

 i originally bought Loki last year to break him on and sell him this year. however he needed a lot of work done and i slowly broke him at his own pace (and mine - considering i'd never done it before) and he can now be ridden in walk, trot and canter, hacks alone and in company and is quite safe while being ridden. he'll walk past cars, tractors, sheep, cows & barking dogs (also other ponies when he's with Minty on a hack) and could be sold as a hacking pony at the moment. he needs a bit of schooling work, hopefully i'll have an arena built by next summer. i've popped him over a few crosspoles on the lunge and he LOVES it, he gets very excited. as a 2yr old he jumped a 7bar field gate from a standstill and has jumped the fence a few times again to get out the field to the one next door, so i think he'll make a fantastic jumping pony! i plan to compete him next year doing some in-hand showing and taking it from there, just getting him used to being out & about with other horses. it's good that he's stuck to Minty like a limpet as these sort of situations don't phase Minty at all therefore Loki can follow example.

so if i was to sell him, how much would you be willing to pay for him? ideally i'd like minimum £2000, fjords are hard to get, even more so in scotland (in the 3 years i've been interested in them i've only ever seen 2 for sale in scotland - and i bought them both!!) but i think £2500 is a nice price as a 4yr old. what do you all think?

I would say advertise at around 3.5k and take no less than 3k for him!

i think you need to be more ambitious. Theres a huge market for Fjords they're an amaszing breed i had to buy mine from the breed society (the scottish society is closed) the english breed society sell unbroken 5 year olds for 3,500 minimum so i think you should definately aim high because you cant put a price on safety and as long as theyre broken at their own pace, which it sounds like your doing, their temperment is priceless. Id ask 3,500 minimum to start with. aim high you can always reduce it! and hes lovely. is he on the breed register? x

 he's not on the breed register no, as i don't have his sires/dams information. i think the british society are a bit useless as they still haven't replied to any of my e-mails about registering him with them, and according to them i have 3 fjords on my owners record. funny that, i only have 2 in my field. i think one is invisible.

I think you're being very optimistic with the prices  - looking on horsemart now the most expensive one on there is £3495 and thats for a 10 year old "been there done that" confidence giving horse. The market is not a sellers market at the moment, I think the most you could get at the moment is about £2500 or £3000 once he's spent the summer going out and about to shows etc - you might not see that many fjords about but from looking at the selling websites and the prices they are going for, they aren't as sought after as some people seem to think they are. That said I'd love a fjord I think they're gorgeous and the market might pick up if you do sell him so you might get a higher price for him
