Jumper as polo prospect?
I was wondering if anyone has sold their smaller-statured jumpers as polo prospects? I have a smaller warmblood jumper mare for sale (on the "big" website--jumping pic and video) very reasonably priced in the low 4 figs but haven't had any luck.
Someone suggested I market her as a polo prospect----if anyone has done this please share your story or PM me. I am familiar with all the hunter/jumper websites out there, but I would have no clue as to where to market a polo prospect. Thanks!
Where you are located is the best place to start.
I've had both a branded Oldenburg and Hanoverian in my string at different points (both flunked out jump prospects, and neither over 15.2). They were both lighter bodied mares with quite a lot of TB blood, had nice minds and developed decent handle.
For me, they need to be quick, not necessarily fast, and have the ability to be "handy" (light and lateral).
