I generalized the add for hf just like I've been generalizing it for the other places I've been advertising. A lot of people selling horses who would be good for this, are not going to know a **** thing about polo. Makes more sense to them to hear I need a horse started western, than to hear I need a polo horse.

Say some 16 yr old barrel racer had an appendix, had no idea what a polo horse did, but needed to get rid of said appendix. Telling her I need a horse started western, who neck reins, shed get it. And could reply to me in a way we can both understand.


So do you polo? How would you like me to talk to YOU about polo since you know it so well....? please, educate me.


Amazin.....post him up, it couldnt hurt to give him a look :) I need a new athlete as it is anyway....

Anyone who knows anything about polo knows they're not trained Western. It's not rocket science, you are making it harder than it is. Polo ponies are started English, they are not trained Western at all and for you to post saying you are looking for a Western trained polo pony makes no sense at all. Or why not post your ad on a polo horse forum and see where it gets you.I have no doubt that you have no clue about polo, and I feel sorry that your client is going to get a horse that isn't what they wanted.

I don't play polo, have ridden an ex polo pony though, that was an experience. I think that most horse people would have some sort if idea what a polo pony is, and what they do, so having to explain for the 16 year old barrel racer is and odd concept.

The confusion comes

What sort of attitude, a polo pony has to be brave, Emmy is quick and nippy, but she would never ever survive polo because she would duck out of a challenge every time, Willow has a crappy attitude, but she would be better on the field because she would put her shoulder in and hold her line without flinching

W/t/c and lead changes, western based, neck reining preferred,
Mare
Registered preferred

What does a set of papers have to do with making a good polo pony? Western based is such a wide term, your WP horse would not do so great out on the field.

What size horse are you looking for? Why a leggy QH? A short legged QH with good speed would work well enough.

Actually why don't you tell us what the ideal requirements for a polo pony are? Height, skills, temperament etc. You must know because you are looking to buy for someone as their agent, so you mist have experience in this area?

I bumped it for you analisa. It's under "coming soon" Missouri

It's the bay not the sorrel

And why are you all trying to beat her up over this? I can understand heckling or trolling somebody's thread. I aggravate people all the time. But not a horse ad. Have some respect. She never claimed to be a polo guru. Just trying to find a horse that has the ingredients

But she is working as an agent for someone else, so one may infer that she is at least competent in that area.

Im actually working for an agent whos working for somebody else. I deal in hunter and barrel horses, not polo ponies.

Im helping a friend, who has a client, who needs a polo horse. I never said I knew anything about polo. I know the type of build she's looking for, I like it in my barrel horses and my friend knows this. I know the type of attitude she's looking for, I use it for my hunting horses. Hence, he asked me for help. And, you may be extrememly knowledgabel about it all, what do I know or care, some of the people replying to my wanted adds may not know much about polo, so the way I described it may make more sense to them. If you know what your talking about, and what im looking for, great for you. Some others may not, but they may have a fiesty brave big boned speedster I can use, and this gives them the opportunity to be able to communicate on a level they understand.




As for your questions......

Size- the client wants something a little bigger, 15.2 and up from what I understand. She wants the longer legs with the thicker body. That's all the clients choice. I received pictures of her other competition mounts, and they'r all lighter built QH types except one who is an obvious TB.

Also, she would rather them be papered. Just the buyers preference.

Just like its her preference for a mare.



Amazin_ I see it now ;) thanks!
