I know a good first flight horse is worth his weight in gold, but I think the same would be true of a good third flight/hilltopper horse that is totally safe and sound?
How would one go about getting the word out for such a gem (type of horse you could put your child or grandmother on, yet young and fit?)
Just put the FOL address ( Foxhunters OnLine: FOL@foxhunters.org) in the "to" space and write your message and send. A letter from your hunt will give your ad some credibility. FOLers tend to be disenchanted of "wannabee prospects"!! LOTS of good hunt people there, though. If you post on the usual...Dreamhorse, Equinenow, Equine.com... make sure you use "Foxhunter" in your headline. It is as hard to find "real" foxhunters as it is to sell them. Good Luck.
I think campaigning him is the best advertisement. Send him somewhere where he'll go out with many hunts. Somewhere there is a concentration of hunts.
I also suggest hunt websites.
And of course....COTH's advertising is the very, very best!!
