I contacted her..

I replied saying

She responded with "Don't ever email me or call me again".

I sent her another email apologizing if I offended her and asked her how?

I just sent her a longer apology email trying to guess how I offended her

What do you think my odds are?
You refused to buy the horse back.

Now you are harassing the seller?

The odds are good you will get a cease and desist order!

Or maybe the person has read some of the things the OP has posted on the internet about her boarders and barn and really does not want to deal with that.

If this was me, I'd just ask someone else to buy the pony for me. Done deal.

When I sold my gelding, I did not ask for buybacks/first right of refusal/whatever. I did, however, ask the buyers to give me a heads up if he was ever sold so I could keep tabs on him. I don't need names or locations, but a quick update is always appreciated: "Hey! We decided to sell Levee and he is on his way to a brand new home as a gaming pony for a really sweet little girl."

I have to agree....there is a chunk of this story missing. It doesn't make any sense.

I am surprised that anyone would buy a horse from you at all. I'd laugh in your face if you tried to sell me a horse at a fair price and then turned around and asked me to sign a contract about what YOUR rights to the horse still are. That is ridiculous in my opinion.

Agreed Sandy, it's a wonder that she was able to sell the horse with the parts B and C of the contract.

I agree, once you sold the horse and money exchanged hands you have no claim to that horse.

Just imagine buying a horse for a decent price, putting a year of training, feed, conditioning, etc. into her, then, after deciding to sell her, be obligated to offer her back to the original owner for the same money; and being threaten with a contract clause if you don't. Not going to happen.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Iride-the contract did say something to the effect of "current market value"....which is pretty much a price open to debate. I am sure I think my horses are worth more than most buyers might......

Not during the first year:
B. If the buyer chooses to sell the horse with in a year of signing this agreement, the buyer agrees to offer the original seller, my name, the first right of refusal to purchase the horse under this same agreement for the same purchase price regardless of value.

I highly doubt the OP would agree to her own terms of sale if the tables were turned and she were the buyer. No way would she hunt the original seller down and give the horse back for the same price. Nor should she... because the idea is ridiculous.
There is nothing wrong with asking for first refusal if the horse will be sold in the future, but that is a courtesy, not a right.
