selling chance.

Well i've had it with chance. I was riding her today in the ring and she bolted I thnk she was trying to race the hay truck cause it was beside her as she was running. She bucked and twisted and I flew over her head AGAIN and landed on my neck and face and slid my nose was bleeding soo bad. My whole right side is torn up. So I need a horse around 7 or 8 that I can trust I have a lesson on her tuesday and im afraid to ride her now. She doesnt like to jump very much even though she's amazing at it so it doesnt work out any way I look at it. I gave her 7 months to work things out and she's back fireing more and more. I checked her over for pain and theres nothing that me or anyone can find. If you guys can help me find a nice horse around 7 that jumps I will be so happy I was hoping for a black horse or a bay anything but a paint lol. Around 15.2 thanks guys! Zip code is 04038 or you can look in the buxton area heres chances add. Im going to try not to think twice about this.

Spelling errors.
Experienced- not exsperience
Has jumped- not has jump
Farrier- not farrier
We're- not were
Going to- not gonna
But she needs- not but needs

That can make your add look bad...
I would also try a different picture.

Gorgeous mare! UTD on everything! Full of personality. A little above green broke, needs one on one time. She does need an experienced rider and someone with patience! Rides western or English. Great W/T, needs a bit of work on canter. Has jump over 2ft6 with ease but she seems to enjoy flat work better. Currently barefoot. Great for farrier and vet. She is great on trails in a group. With the right training she will be great in the show ring or just pleasure riding! Great potential. We're going to miss her but she needs to be sold.

I'd change the pic for sure. Also the last sentence doesn't sound really good to me: "We're going to miss her but she needs to be sold." The first question coming "WHY she needs to be sold". You may want to give a "gentle" explanation why (say, short on money or looking for more experienced horse for the kid, etc.)

Picture Ideas

- One of you riding her
- One with Saddle on on 3/4 rump view or side view
- One without saddle on side view

Be prepared to send more pictures of the front, rear, and both sides to someone that is interested.

Post her on several websites (for example):

Instead of the ad saying "Must Sell", try approaching from a different view. Title your ad something like "Trained TB Mare", "Elegant Trained TB Mare, experienced rider needed", "English Jumper and Western Pleasure TB Mare", or something about if she is registered or pedigree...example "War O' TB Daughter, Trained"

Great advise by all. When I write an ad I do it first in Word then I can look at it a while, tweak it, and finally use spell checker.

As for the last sentence ... I'd eliminate it altogether. My question when looking at the ad would be "If she is going to miss her, why is she selling her" and "Why does she have to go". There are also too many negatives in your ad.

Just my $.02 from buying and selling a lot of horses.
