Ok so this may sound odd... Selling a greenie and keeping a hold of the money
So I really believe that my green horse will be marketed to the jumpers. For valid reasons (His style of jump, movement, and likely cost) it makes sense to not market him as aggressively to my "home" discipline of eventing.
Now see I have been around the shows and the horse world long enough to know that the buying and selling of H/J types can come with a string of trainers and multiple commissions and various challenges therein. I am fine so long as the eventual owner and I would get to talk money ourselves and their trainer get commissions from the buyer and the buyer alone. But I have read the threads, heard the stories etc. I am not going to be ok thinking I am selling him for $X and finding out later he sold for $ZZ.
So what advice can you all give beyond "talk to the buyer directly." I will be very clear on my end, but any advice from the trenches would be very appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
