I look at horses to buy on and off. I would like my mare to have company, and I would like to rope a family member into riding w me. It is a difficult process at best, for the myriad of reasons I am sure most of you all are aware.
Anyway, here is the phenomenon: many (not all) sellers, regardless of price range, pressume prospective buyers (complete strangers they know nothing about) to have little knowledge of horses. This is just odd to me. I don't ever feel like "proving" otherwise...especially since I am specifically and only interested in the horse in front of me, not the human.
It just makes the process all that much more unpleasant. Anyone else?
