I'm looking for livery for a 16.1 gelding in or around Bowdon, Cheshire.
I'd ideally like grass livery but DIY/part considered.
Don't really need facilities but AYTO and decent hacking essential.
I think if you saw a horse advertised for £4k and you went to view it having no intention of paying more than £3k you would most likely be wasting their time and yours. However if you were to call them and say, 'My absolute maximum budget is £3k, I don't want to waste your time but that is all...
it's very difficult to price a horse without actually seeing it or sitting on it. She may well be worth £6.5k to someone - maybe not to you, I don't know. What I will say though is if I was selling the price would be agreed before you took the horse on trial (I personally would not allow this...
Has anyone had much success with adverts placed on just the online section? Missed this weeks mag booking (and it's expensive!) - wondering if online only advert worth it? Do any of you browse for horses on the online bit or just the mag?
And how would you know if i've never seen it?!
No one is dictating what they can and cannot do just whether it's necessary for our Royals to be seen as endorsing it.
So just because a horse has a sheen on its coat and only is subjected to a few minutes of abuse now and again it's ok?
They will be visiting the Rodeo in Calgary. Quite appalled at this really given the cruelty involved. What do you think?
How they get the money to you should be their concern not yours. Just tell them the horse doesn't leave the yard either in your transport or theirs until the money is either in your hand or in your bank account. And give them a timescale to complete the transaction!
How long was your agreement for? Did you discuss how long you were thinking of loaning for?
Don't put off tackling this. It might be awkward but you'll be relieved once it's all sorted. It's probably on your mind all the time at the moment!
Absolutely. I'm sick of hearing how people say they've 'put all the hard work in and now owner wants it back' - so buy it - 'can't afford it'. Ok, but you were happy to have a free horse for however long and now want to moan about it.
See if she wants to buy, if not, agree a...
To be honest I think it depends on individual circumstances. I've done both at home and livery and can't wait to get back to livery! I think if you have a family who are all horsey and can help out if you need to go away for the weekend etc then it can work out, otherwise it's all on you and...
When do people start looking for a new hunter? I realise most aren't wanting to buy now but when would I be best to advertise, July/August or once the season begins/Autumn hunting time?
He does everything but most of all loves hunting hence wanting to find him the right home!
Have you tried englishforum.ch? A post on there in the pets section may help you find out more.
I went riding a few times but didn't have my own horse there, and we were more Bodensee way so can't help more really. There are some fantastic looking yards there - hope you find...
I'm looking for a BSJA rider to compete my horse, just Discovery initially. I'd be meeting them at shows with the horse.
How much do pro riders charge to ride for you in a class?
Any ideas would be helpful.
Had a new farrier once who turned up on his fist visit and let his dog out without so much as asking, he hadn't even seen me at this point. it jumped over the fence into my garden and was lucky not to be savaged by my very territorial dog. When I actually got out to the yard to see him he had...
