View Full Version : Finding a sharer?

Is anyone else having trouble finding a sharer?
I have had my cob up for share for a while now, I had a few people interested and chose a sharer who I was a bit worried about as she didn't have much experience but she seemed keen to learn, but that ended after a month as he was slipping into bad habits and he ended up falling onto his knees down a steep hill and his sharer coming off. Since then I have only had a couple of people reply to his ad and no have been suitable.
How long did it take you to find the right sharer?

I am a sharer, and it took me 6months and 10 horse viewings to find the horse I've just started a trial with. It's tough times finacially for everyone, I would keep at it and you will eventually find someone who is perfect for your horse!

I have given up- had a lot of interest in my horse but everyone that has come to see him has just not been right. Either a good rider but not good on the TLC (just wanting to chuck the tack on) or good on the TLC and a bit of a passenger riding him.
Just keep on - the right person has got to be out there.

I want to share a horse but I dont really have any stable management experience so I'm looking to help (for free) on someones livery to get the experience, then hopefully I'll be able to share with someone, just cant wait :) xx

No, i've not had any response to my advert for Charlie. I'm in no rush as his current sharer is still looking after/riding till the end of the month. A friend of someone at the yard might be interested but they are away for another 2 weeks, so if nothing comes from that I think I will just have Charlie back full time. x

i shared my shetland for 18months when i had my daughter. i agreed to the first person that applied because i was desperate for the help but she turned out to be unreliable and never turned up when she was supposed to! after 2weeks i told her it wasnt working and readvertised. aftr 3more weeks of asking around, i found an amazing teenager who was doing an equine college course and wanted the experience, she was brilliant. Mulberz had never been plaited and bandaged so much, but it was good experience for them both! if you are desperate for the help then perhaps change the advert a bit, otherwise its more important to wait for the right person-how ever long it takes!
