    Waresbear has it right- if they want to send the horse back with their own money, then refund the cost (perhaps even minus a fee for the time the horse was off the market, giving up the stall in the boarding barn, etc.)

    My horse's bill of sale says he's 15.2 hh. When I measured him, he was just under 15 hh, and now that he's barefoot he may be closer to 14.3 than 15 Fortunately in my case I was actually looking for a horse closer to 15 hh anyway. Anyone experienced in the horse world should know to take a horse's advertised height with a grain of salt and if an inch or two is going to make or break the deal they should have at least asked for photos of the horse being measured.

    Show your friend what Caveat Emptor means. Write it out for her as she seems to block out what you tell her.

    I would hire a professional to measure the horse at its new location and if it is indeed 14.2 she should pay to get her horse back. 14.2 is a pony , you should be with in an inch of measuring a horse. Size can be very important in some instances.

    Who is a professional horse measurer. Never heard of it. The horse is out of state. He bo't the horse, he owns it. Unless there's an ulterior motive why doesn't he put it up for sale? I'm sure a judge would ask that. This seller should quit worrying and bide her time. The judge may also ask why the seller hasn't returned the horse.

    She actually listed the horse as under 15hh. The buyer had the ability to have a prepurchase exam done in which a vet could have measured the horse, but they declined to do so.

    A professional would be a knowledgeable horse person. Like a respected breeder or a vet to measure it. Under 15H is vague. A mini would fall under that category. So is she sent a mini it would be buyer beware.
    I read it as just under 15H to me that is over 14.3 but not 15H
    14.2 is a pony not a horse.

    They took a risk buying sight unseen and are most likely have successfully gotten money back by doing this to other sellers.

    14.2 is the dividing point between a pony and a horse, thus it can be referred to as either. Additionally, a true pony has different proportions then a horse. I doubt any one would look at a 14hh champion AQHA reiner and call it a pony.

    Any how, in this case it really is buyer beware. If height was a really important factor, the horse should have been measured by a vet, or the buyer should not have bought a horse that was "just under 15hh". If height is a deal breaker you wouldn't by a horse that had height listed as an approximate.

    I know a friend who bought a gelding advertised as 15.2hh, and when we measured him he was barely 14.3hh. She didn't care too much, height was not a deal breaker, but in this case it was obvious the seller didn't bother to even attempt to measure him, and this was a horseman that had been breeding and training for years, and was in a very prominent position running an equine facility.

    This is the best way I could think to say it.
