Badwolf, great advice regarding advertising.

Also, not that this will help but I did find three KMSHA breeders in KY, meaning, there are people with interest for these horses and there are shows

KMSHA - Breeder's Directory - Kentucky

My friend drove from an hour north of Pittsburgh, PA to somewhere SE of Bowling Green to buy a KMSHA several years ago. She paid 5K for that horse and they're still sloggin' thru the mud together.

Waresbear, to answer your question, no, Kentucky is not considered the heart or "Cradle of Walking Horse Country"; my area of Tennessee is

One of biggest TWH Breeding Farms has recently been turned into a historic landmark, just outside Franklin, TN.

City of Franklin : The Park at Harlinsdale Farm

The Harlindale Farm was formally established in 1933 and I am very proud to say the horse in my avatar was born on that farm, 25 years & 7 months ago

I was priviledged to see his sire, Pride's Genious, twice before he passed and it was just as big a privilege to get stupid and tear up standing over the gravesite of Midnight Sun

Kentucky's gaited claim to fame are the Rocky's and KMSHA's

I live in S. Central KY, and DH shopped on Craigs List when searching for a gaited horse. Be sure you get a decent picture. We bought a TWH from Knoxville, TN, but she was on Bowling Green's CL. I called on a lot of horses in that search, and acting ignorant will not get many buyers to come look at your horse(not that you are, but I talked to several that seemed that way, and did NOT go look at their horse!) Have in mind the answers to some questions, and get her Coggins, etc up to date, so someone who comes from a long way can take her right with them.

Sorry to get long winded on you!1

Pinto is the term for spotted rather than paint

I'd emphasize the fact that the horse you are selling is gaited, not so much the color/pattern of your horse.

As the saying goes, a good horse is never a bad color. And putting too much emphasis on the coat color in an ad will likely draw the attention of people who are shopping for "color" but expecting to buy a stock horse or other non-gaited breed.

Post pictures of your horse along with the ad - that by itself should be pretty self explanatory about what her coloring is. Make sure you mention what her registered breed is, if she can be registered as anything else, what kind of work she has done up to this point, etc.

It shouldn't be hard to find other gaited horse people in that area - it's just a matter of knowing what they're likely "searching" for in posted ads.

When you say it is a project horse that doesn't sound like a horse that many would want. Some one doesn't want your problems.
