Bleh dealing with people and selling things
My friend is selling a saddle she bought, it didn't fit her horse and was one of those cheap saddle sets. She used it maybe 5 times, it is brand new. It sells everywhere for $400, my friend got herself a nice new saddle and a girl we met at a show says she wants the saddle she's selling. My friend priced her saddle at $300 (with matching headstall an breastcollar) the Girl wanted to make payments on saddle, and only pay $200. They compromised and come out at $250 with a $100 down payment. Girl kept asking what size gullet was and everything else, my friend told her and said she could come to the next show (she was at the last) and try it out. Girl replies back she's not hauling to anymore shows and said where her barn is and where she hauls to ride at every tuesday? Our barn is 30 minutes away from her, and she hauls about 45 minutes away every week. Theres open riding at our barn. But anyway, we decided we'd take the saddle out to her barn for her to try out today. Last night she messaged my friend and said her horse had a swollen leg and the vet was coming at 3, we were coming at 4? And she has two horses, not just that one. She hasn't even come out to see the saddle, it's like she expects it to be brought out to her no matter what. It's her "dream saddle" too. It's frustrating since we actually tried to take it to her. Now I'm wondering if we should just leave it and tell her to come see it if she wants too?
