i have a lovely jumping pony that we are selling. she has been out on loan to a young girl for the past 9 months and they have said they will buy her for 1.2k which is little more then we paid for her.

we brought her a few years ago when she used to buck her old owner off and was a little terror. shes now an established jumping pony. in the years that she was living with me, she was poping a 1.30 corse like it was nothing and was quick. sadly, i was to big by the time she was ready to affiliate. so insted of selling her, we put her out on loan to a child to learn to jump on. she has done very well in trialblazers classes and could go further however her rider is only 8 and the pony is 138cm and is too big for her.

im in a tricky situation because i have done so much work on her and would never have put a young child on her before i had re-schooled her. now shes an ideal 2nd pony but she is old. ill tell you about her so you can tell me what price but i had wanted to make a profit. i dont want to sound uncaring, because i love the pony alot and want the best for her, however my father thinks the offered price is way too little. i know its going to be hard to sell her because of her age and time of CC but anyone who has ponies know they last for ages.

ABOUT HER:
138cm jumping pony, bay welsh sec c mare. age unknown but could be anywhere between 17-20. fit and competition ready. jumping machine, never knocks a pole. ridden by 8 year old in trailblazers for past year, well schooled and jumped corses of 1.30cm with older rider. no vices. never sore or sorry. good with farrier,catch,shoe etc. lives in or out and travels well. beautifully behaved at shows and goes first or last. stops and starts when asked but can be foward going/strong hence ideal 2nd pony.

how much do you think id get for her? and do you think i should accept the money offered by her loan owners?

here are some pictures:

I would say that offer is fair as at over 17 she is not going to be a potential affiliated realistically.

Hmm well i agree it is too low for a jumping pony even at her age - but it doesnt sound like she hasnt done much bsja so she is old to just be coming out as such.

Also u have to consider current market - £1200 would buy u something to play with of your own rather than loaning like u want to at the moment

eta - i had missed a bit!

If they are offering her a good home - then I would let them have her at any price quite frankly.

There comes a point where her future is far more important than money......

vicki_krystal: the money is going towards a toy for my father who has spent way to much money on me lately and deserves a break. when i mean toy i mean a car.

i personally dont have a problem with selling her to them for 1,200 but im worried that they will buy her then sell her on for more as in my opinion shes worth more. my dad doesnt want to let all the hard work ive done go for 100pound more then what we paid but i can see why horses arnt selling with the credit crunch.

i'd let the loan owners have her. i personally don't think you would get that much more for her with her age, and as others have said, she hasn't got the record like so many of the older bsja ponies.

I agree you should let her go with them. How about asking for £1200 for the horse but wanting extra for all the bits and pieces she has got? Taking total up to £1500ish for example? It would mean a bit extra for your Dad and you not having to sell on all her old gear.

If you are worried about her being sold on could you talk to them and say that although the pony is worth more you will sell her cheaper to them on the condition it is a long term and caring home?
