English show people your opinion...

First, sorry if this didnt quite go on the right fourm I wasnt sure where to put it.

Okay, well I was wondering, do you think any nice show barn would do a trade with a nice expirence junior jumper/eq horse for a somewhat green hunter(six to be exact) with lots of A rated show expirence? I say trade because of with this economy, no ones really buying. Im wondering this because not only is this horse very nice but green, but also a snot :) but that is not thre reason for selling/trading

I think it would be very rare if you a tually came across a hunter/jumper show barn that would do a trade. It is definitely worth a try and making soem contact with some people, but I would doubt it. Sorry =(

^sorry if the post wasnt very clear, haha

There are some that would, but I was wondering if the trade would be, the best way to put it, honest. You know what I mean? Haha

I think it could be possible it never hurts to try. Try listing the horse for sale and put the trade only option as a possiblity and see what you get.

Green Broke
You're question is a bit vague as there are a lot of variables in the scenario. Generally people are only willing to do trades if there is an even value. And you'd have to find someone looking to trade in their more experienced horse for a greener one... to make that an even trade the green horse would have to be pretty spectacular AND/OR the experienced one would have to either just be average or have something that will decrease his value. Perhaps a mild soundness issue or is getting up there in years. What we'd need to know are details like what level was the jumper/eq horse competing at? How successful was he and how prestigious were the shows that he has done? How old is he? How easy is he to ride? What we'd need to know about the green horse is, how successful will he be at his future job, how much training has he had, how much of an attitude does he have, etc. Do you know what the experienced horse is worth? Sometimes prospects go for more then experienced horses but finding the right person to trade may be tricky.
