    Do I have grounds for a refund?

    Hi, I obviously have to be careful now given that the case is with solicitors but I can confirm that the pony was sold as a top class 148 pony - not top 148 pony subject to LHC. The person selling is a professional. I queried the height of the pony in messages and it was stated that she would...

    Do I have grounds for a refund?

    Sorry everyone. You have probably already guessed but she still didn't measure in. Absolutely gutted. I have no issue with JMB - everything was done very professionally - 2 vets plus a JMB representative. The pony is just too big! So now we have a very small horse with high withers. A solicitors...

    Do I have grounds for a refund?

    Hi All, well we have been called back for a further JMB measurement following their panel review due to the large discrepancies in measurements. Will have to wait another 2 weeks. I have also instructed an excellent equine solicitor incase she doesn't measure in. I will keep you all posted...

    Do I have grounds for a refund?

    Thank you all so much for your responses to my post. There has been no resolution to date. The owner is still refusing to refund or discuss matters further. I have formally instructed a solicitor today (after having telephone conversations prior to this) to start proceedings. I will let you...

    Do I have grounds for a refund?

    Thank you so much for this. This is a perfect summary of the situation and really clarifies our position in law. I have contacted an equine solicitor this morning. I think we are very much in the negligent misrepresentation area. Thank you again x

    Do I have grounds for a refund?

    Hi - I did specify that the pony couldn't be bigger than 148 as my daughter needed to ride her in juniors. I will be speaking to solicitors tomorrow. Thanks x

    Do I have grounds for a refund?

    The advert started with 'top class 148 showjumper' - very clear. During the first few messages I had with the seller I asked if she had measured in at 148 as we couldn't go above it for juniors - although we needed a full up 148. I got the answer that yes she is a full up 148. I then saw the...

    Do I have grounds for a refund?

    I have read this as well but the mares feet were perfectly trimmed according to the vet. If the pony is very relaxed (she is the most chilled pony I have literally ever some across) why would I need to exercise her? This is where I struggle. I understand if you have a very wired pony it makes...

    Do I have grounds for a refund?

    It is difficult to judge height in some ponies. My other 148 pony I was convinced would never measure in - we decided to affiliate her after owning her for a few years so height hadn't been that important. She was only 146.5 - yet looked massive. The new pony is a little 'odd'. She literally has...
