Games Trainers Play: The Florida Horse Saga
My friend is selling a horse in Western KY. She's been talking to a trainer, who is a friend of her trainer back home about buying her horse- who is fairly reasonably priced. She has sent videos, pictures and been outright in her description of the horse.
The potential buyer has contacted my friend asked her to haul the horse to Florida for them to look at him. She's a poor college student and is seriously considering hauling the horse- but is this normal? How can she approach this with the trainer? What are her options? What would you do? It's going to be a $500+ dollar trip to get the horse down there- does the potential buyer have any monetary responsibilities to see the horse?
One of the options we're thinking of is telling the buyer that if she buys, she doesn't have to pay any gas money, if she doesn't buy she'll owe my friend. Is this fair?
What do we do? We've never sold a horse like this before and we're kinda baffled.
