Its really frustrating. I had the PERFECT people enquire about Merry, they wanted to do with him everything i had in mind before i mentioned it. They were experienced, and 3 boys, wanted to go all over with him and do everything. they asked all the right things, answered perfectly, made clear what they wanted and needed. They arranged a visit and told me they were all excited and….never turned up!

i called and emailed them and have heard nothing.

Im used to selling and have people leave me in the dark and i usually get a good feel for people and had a really good feel about these guys. I was gutted!

I really dont want to advertise him everywhere (he's in a couple of places) as i couldn't cope with numpties coming and seeing him…its Merry! wouldn't mind if its the selling ones…

want to do this word of mouth i think but i want him to go out COMPETING!!! ot many people i know around here... i thought this would be a dream for someone….

could you guys keep an ear out for anyone wanting a successfull early showing career???

The woman i had lined up for loaning my mare sounded perfect too but i chickened out a few days before she was suposed to go. A few days later shes had 2 horses "taken" from her yard. the police are involved but it sounds like some sort of non payment or ownership issue? One of the horses taken is a livery horse so they arnt bothered who's they take!

happy to but dont want to look like ive come on here to advertise him…i havn't! hehe

Hes the reg B 12.2 ride and drive ive had from that start. He's 5 this year and i want him to go out competing now with a jockey. he is very soft in the mouth and just needs a little rider who knows what they are doing. He's not naughty in any way but not done much work on his own in a school due to my lack of both school and jockey!!! a few good kick should set him straight. He voice commanded so i can stop him or get him on from the other side of the arena etc. Just want a good home where he will be out there having fun. he's getting to old to just be brought in as and when family come up.

here's the pretty boy…

He's lovely. I will keep an ear out for you. He's the right size for some of the kids at my yard but they are very much beginners so wouldn't be suitable for him unfortunately x

Thats a shame im sure someone out there will be perfect for him, its easter hols soon as well and the weather is getting better so maybe you will find him a nice home then

We once had someone vet put a deposit down on a horse then go away on holiday come back and decide they didnt want her anymore poor horse
