sloooooowwly. Put mine up a month ago now! Very little interest although she ticks all the boxes and I'm told, is a reasonable price. I'm trying to decide whether to leave it until autumn now or to keep trying...

I sold mine within 2 weeks (chestnut in siggi) she was n't cheap but she does have the basics to be something special. Sold it to 2nd person who came to look although she took a week to decide only had 3 calls for her though and once the add had been on 3-4 weeks got lots of text messages showing interest!

How longs a piece of string really,know thats not very helpful but friends recently had very different experiences a lot seems to depend on what your selling.
Two friends selling nice all rounder cob types for between 3500 and 5000 both sold in a week to first people who phoned as soon as ads went on line another friend with a couple of project type horses around the 1500 mark has had them up for over a year with hardly any interest.

It seems to depend on what the horses are doing the ones who are out competing every week and people can see that for themselves on the internet seem to be selling and the bomb proof cobby types seem to be selling anything in between that looks good but isn't out competing regularly don't seem to be selling very quickly.

Well, I have just bought my new horse (had him for 6 weeks now!) The types I were looking at were going very quickly, and I missed out on several I wanted, even though the adds had only just come out.
My new boy is gorgeous, 17.2, 8yr old, safe, sensible and sound with masses of potential. I think those types are always in demand.
