You wait ages for one...!
Yes, the old adage about buses is certainly true for horses!
A couple of days ago, I spotted on Gumtree a horse that was looking for a sharer not a few miles away from me. I dropped his owner a line, hoping she might reply....
In the meantime, my friend and I dropped into a nearby tack shop on the way home from our riding lesson, and I spotted an advert for another horse looking for a sharer just a few miles further away, so took down the number and rang the owner.
This second horse is a 15.3 cob mare, pretty much bombproof, and is a great confidence-booster. Her owner's just looking for someone to help out with her during the summer while she brings on her youngster.
Sounds promising, so I might be going to have a look during the week....
However, the owner of the first horse has also replied to me, as she's looking for someone to share her horse - a 17hh Clydesdale x TB gelding. She says there are a couple of people already interested, but if they're not suitable, she'll be in touch...!!
