New Horse!!

Hehehe I am finding it so funny how many times I have posted about selling Lola. Well this time I have a potential buyer!! And he goes to the same yard as me so lots of advantages!! He knows exactly what she is like, She will more than likely be staying where she is so no upsetting her with moving etc, I will know how she is doing, The man wanting to buy her is really nice! His daughter has two ponies and he is really good with them and well it is all just great XD So I will be talking to him the next time I see him. Today I was joking with him saying he wanted to buy her etc. Then when I rode her he was watching and he asked how much I would sell her for! It sounded like he was really interested...Woop! And sadly if not I will have to find her a different home. I have now finally agreed with myself that I cannot get along with her and I do not enjoy riding her etc. The only thing stopping me selling her is not seeing her anymore! I know that is a very stupid excuse but I cannot help it XD

So now I am looking for a new horse. I know Lola will only sell for 600-800 at most so it needs to be a cheap horse. And it needs to be quiet, a confidence giver and be able to jump cross country and showjumping. Oh and hack quietly with other horses and be good in open spaces. I know that is a lot to ask for in a cheap horse...But hopefully I will find something that meets some of those. I have someone telling me to loan a horse..What are the advantages to that? I know the one he is talking about is 80 euro a month and I will have to pay for vet bills etc. I don't know much about the horse but I do know he is quiet and has jumped cross country and showjumping before. I am half thinking it will be good to loan because I can get a very good horse and not have to worry about paying for it straight away. But then it is the paying every month thing that I don't think will work out for me unless it was not a lot of money.

So anyone have any advice on what to do? And if anyone knows any cheap, good horses in Ireland please let me know!

I assume that "loan" means what we call "lease" i.e. rent for an extended period.
I think that leasing would be agreat way for you to get to know a horse before comitting to buying. If you spent a couple of years leasing, and maybe did a couple of different horses your experience would really grow. That is one advantage to leasing differenat horses as opposed to owning one.

Good luck and I hope the sale happens.

Yep leasing...I am still trying to decide XD There are no horses on DoneDeal only broodmares and stallions at stud =/

And anything on that site you posted Carlie is over 10,000 for a horse in Ireland !
