    Default Selling Hunter ponies-Classifieds-do they work?

    I am a breeder, and I am new to the world of hunter ponies. After much looking, I now have a wonderful rider working with my ponies and they are doing really well over fences. I am also working on establishing a relationship with a BNT in my area as I know this is critical for my sucsess.

    However, it is dead in Florida right now for ponies. Said trainer is off shgowing up north and I would love to be marketing my ponies NOW. Does it make sense to put an ad up on Big Eq or in COTH and try to advertise like that? I have been told in hunters it is mostly trainer selling to/thru trainer.

    Just to clarify, ponies are medium mares and are ready to show but have both only attended one local schooling show and ticketed warmups at rated shows.

    TIA for the input

    Big Eq actually works pretty well I think.

    Do trainers frown on you having classifieds? Would you direct buyers to the trainer?
