    It's from the end of August. 3 months isn't 'quite a while ago'.

    Take a close look at what starline said. It also seems to me that you are trying to market him as a hunter/jumper pony. If so, especially considering he's unproven in a show ring, you have to make him stand out. Appearance is a big part of hunters and these pictures just show a pony that might be fun to fly around a field with.

    Do you have a field or somewhere that looks clean? If I were looking for a new show pony I wouldn't be looking for pictures that included farm machinery, ungroomed horses, and goats. I certainly would be turned off by the pony being ridden in a halter. You don't show in a halter and so you shouldn't advertise pictures of him being ridden in one. He needs to be cleaned up so he looks like he's show ready. You also need to make yourself look clean and professional.

    I agree with everyone else that says you should change it to free lease. In my experience (17 years of it) the only horses who didn't have a free lease were the ones who were absolutely amazing, PROVEN, show horses. Mostly they were lease to own and the amount they leased the horse for went toward their purchase price. You says you don't want to sell him, so I doubt anyone will want to pay a monthly fee plus all the other costs of owning a horse. Just because you think he'll be a "fabulous" show pony doesn't mean he actually will be.

    Yeah, but 3 months is enough time to lose money, and change plans.

    You sure like picking on this girl don't you? I've seen quite a few posts of you harping the OP.

    I know I should mind my own business, but I felt I needed to say something.

    I have to agree Erika. Three months is more than enough time for someone's situation to change, have a change of plans, or just simply decide on another course of action for no reason. OP did nothing wrong in deciding to lease out her pony so he gets more use.

    I do hope she seriously considers the free lease option though, as that would bring about a lot more interest in the pony, I would think.

    I would also like to point out that I'm really proud of the OP handling all the negative comments to her post VERY well. We are trying to help even though it may seem like it isn't. You have a very cute pony though.. I am a sucker for palominos!

    I agree, but I really didn't see anything negative posted, just someone harping on her about things that aren't really relevant to the thread.

    This has nothing to do with the thread neither...So, I'm sorry about that.

    Picking on her? Every thread this girl starts sends up a million red flags - asking for clarification on things and pointing out OBVIOUS issues is now picking on her? I would hate to see her sued because she decided to play riding instructor. I've also been encouraging her to keep her pony if he's what makes her happy.

    I don't know about other threads but she did nothing in this one that would warrant your response. And the issue you had was with something posted months ago. I'd call that picking on her. All she asked for in this thread was advice on how to word a lease ad.

    Thanks everyone. In August, ACTUALLY, we couldn't afford our house. We were forced to move out & lost a lot, so we could pay for all of our horses. You have no idea what could happen in 3 months.

    I don't have a critique to add about the ad. You've gotten a lot of good advice, and I do agree that free lease would probably be best.

    I would also like to disagree quite strongly with reachthestars rather unwarranted posts. I have seen none of these "red flags" in your posts that were mentioned. I've actually noticed quite the opposite. If I remember correctly, you're rather young, and I've actually been surprised and impressed with your maturity.

    That is all :]
