Yup. She sure would, and as evidenced in her previous threads, $$ is huge in the world of this particular OP. OP-if you care about your clients getting a good pony, you might want to forego this and just send them her way. THink of it as an investment in your future, as after all, I would think they would bring said pony back to your place for lessons and such.
Not only is everyone right-you WERE offered to purchase the horse. Long ago. You turned them down. Not only that, but really "right of first refusal" is not worth the paper it is written on, and really depends upon the goodness of their heart to contact you if they sell.
Personally-if you contacted me to buy back a horse and told me you were going to use it in a lesson program-I would tell you to take a hike too.
