We've been looking for a little loan pony for dd2 for a few weeks now,with no joy.I was trawling the internet and found a little 12h 15year old gelding for sale-£750 inc tack ono.Done PC good in traffic,gymkhana games,jumps 2ft 3 all the usual stuff.Been up for sale for 2 wks.I googled the phone number and found his ad on another site,dated 23rd August,at £850.
Assuming he is ok and I can have him on trial,what would be a reasonable offer,bearing in mind that they have already got a new pony and are paying livery for both until he goes? Thankyou.
I think that if the owner's willing to give you a trial, and the pony's not overpriced, you shouldn't be looking to haggle too much. £750 including tack sounds very fair if it's a good pony (could you get PC reference?)
Hmm,I was thinking about a reference last night-I'd need to find out which PC they attended,pony is at Ravenstone,so too far for the Quorn I think.Could be Atherstone.Thanks for the reply,I'm rubbish at haggling.
