Just curious. Years ago I was looking for a youngster and a lady told me she had "a 4yr old that was going beautifully in a double bridle with a market harborough". Needless to say I didn't go and see it.
yes totally! - I cannot count the number of times I have heard this little gem lol! and the other one """we don't have anywhere suitable to try him other than you can of course ride them up and down the lane, we are not allowed to ride in the fields etc. etc...."""
Actually, Millieâ€™s old owner said exactly this to me, but she genuinely did have a bad back (hence why she was selling and giving up horses). Fortunately I got the right vibes off her and I knew Millie was going to be fine, which she was.
Thereâ€™s not many horses Iâ€™d do this with though!
Or anything to do with timewasters, very few people go viewing horses for fun, and good sellers normally recognise that not everyone who views their horse will want to buy it. So this sentence normally means the horseis not as described or has something wrong with it.
This is interesting because I had to jump through hoops to buy Millie. The old owner wanted references from two professionals, she wanted to see my BHS certificates... all of which I could and did provide. It might have put some people off but it also gave me the feeling that this was a good horse that someone really cared about, rather than something someone wanted rid of quick.
But I can see how this sort of thing on an ad might put people off!
