Advice on selling a horse
This is not an ad. Just trying to help my sister out.
She needs to sell her horse, and needs some ideas as to what is acceptable and what's not. Like. he is a stallion, she wants to sell him with a contract to breeding rights. How would that work?
There is someone wanting to come look at him, she found out that this person is out of state, she's not so sure about that, because she wants to be able to follow him at shows, and see how he does. (her trainer says he has GP potential) If someone comes to look at him, is it right or ok to decline selling him to them because they are out of state?
Is it ok to ask permission to follow him at shows, and take pictures etc.?
Is it ok to ask that they keep him a stallion? I don't see how, once you sell the horse, you no longer have control, unless you put it in contract right?
My sister is emotionally exhausted from this. She, in a way, doesn't want to sell him. but she can't afford to do anything with him, and feels bad that she is wasting him basically. He is a wonderful horse full of potential, and would rather see him with someone who can take him far. she also just had her hours cut at work, and is making paying his board (even with someone half leasing him) very difficult.
She has never gone through the selling process before, and needs help. She is working with her trainer as well.
Also. she has set her price for him, trainer thinks she should be flexible a bit because any other horse out there is a lot cheaper than him at the same training level. But my sister wants to stick to her price. but people coming to look at him want to stay a little bit less. what are your thoughts?
Thanks in advance!
