I've bought and sold many horses in my life time. Personally, I would never give a trial period with any horse I have for sale. A buyer can take as much time as necessary and ride him as many times as realistic but to take the horse off my property for any period of time? NO.
Once the horse has left, I have no control how the horse will be treated, ridden, fed, etc. I've had friends who have done that and in some cases the horse came back in poor condition, or with problems that it didn't leave with.
If you want a horse that I am selling, take your time and be sure - then pay your money and take your horse.
Although it is done, it is not a common practice anywhere I've lived.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
