My horse has recently had some lameness issues that the vet thinks will be resolved enough for him to be a really nice trail horse with light arena work, perfect for someone who just wants a nice horse they can hop on and ride out on the trails. I, however, want to start jumping and becoming a better rider. My horse isn't the horse I need anymore but I would never ever ever want him to end up in a bad situation because he's not totally 100% sound for hard work.
Reading your responses to this post have helped me feel much better about including a right of first refusal if I decide to sell my horse. I don't want to be able to check up on him whenever I feel like it or be snoopy, I just want to make sure that if the buyer ever ends up in a situation where they have to get rid of the horse, I know he can have a good home with me. I know if he ever ended up in a bad situation I would never forgive myself. He means the world to me so if I sell him I will take the time to find someone who fits him perfectly so I don't have to worry but horses are expensive and unpredictable things can happen. I always want to know that the horse will have a good home.
