I've still got my pony up for sale at the moment and some people have been asking about a loan. The woman wants to loan her for her 13 year old daughter to make sure she committed to looking after a horse before buying one, she's told us that her daughter has a lessons and rides a friends horse but I'm not sure if she's experienced enough to bring on a young pony.
My granddad is completely against it and he's been telling me that only professionals loan horses to make their yards look better then won't listen when I say that plenty of other people loan them. I really don't know what to do because I'm kind of wary of who she goes to because I don't want anyone to hurt her. The only thing is we really need to sell her or loan her because my granddad is having an operation in March and will need full time care for a few months after so I will not have time to look after a horse. Do you think loaning her to someone is a good idea or not?
Also I have good news as I may have found a new horse :)
