Exclamation Please help!!!!

Please help me someone! I absolutely need to sell my horse! I've had a huge family emergency come up, and I can no longer afford to keep him anywhere, let alone deal with feed, shots, etc.! I have until the end of August to get rid of him, otherwise I'll fall horribly behind on my own living expenses and possibly get kicked out of my house, and he'll get kicked out of his boarding pen. I just don't know what to do, and I would die if I had to just put him in a sale. The sales here are absolutely horrible, there's shady people just waiting for desperate sellers and I would never stop feeling guilty if he didn't go to a good home.

I love this horse so much, and this is really hard, but I honestly have no other choice! He's got absolutely amazing bloodlines including Dash For Cash, First Down Dash and Streakin' Six!

He's been trained in everything, he's been through a college Equine program twice and he's very all around now! He's done tons of English, even more Western, and everything! He does Western Pleasure, anything English including jumping, he does Trail Class, Showmanship, some Reining, and he's currently in training for barrels.

He's an ex-racer who's been fantastically retrained, and he's got a lot of speed! His speed index is 103, which is huge! He's been very well trained, however, to go slowly in WP, and he extends beautifully for English. He's 9 years old, bay, AQHA registered Appendix Quarter Horse.

Also, he does everything required for showing, including bathing, clipping, stands for banding/braiding, stands perfect for the farrier, and has NO bad manners at all! He stays out of people's space, he's not pushy, and he does all groundwork including backing, pivots, leads perfect, everything! He's a dream to lunge, a dream to ride, and a dream to own!

Please, please help me if you can! I'll be more than willing to arrange shipment with you in at least the states near Montana, as far as East as Minnesota, as far south as Colorado, as far West as the Coast, and possibly Canada? Due to his training and bloodlines, and my situation, he won't be going for cheap, but I'm willing to talk! I'm sorry for this being so so long, but I'm so desperate now! If you have any questions, please contact me! More pictures upon request!

Is there no way we can do it? I've seen your posts on here everywhere, and you would be a perfect home for him!

If you're so desperate to get rid of him, you're going to have to consider taking a heck of a lot less than you think he's worth.

In fact, if push comes to shove, you may have to give him away just to get him off your expenses.

There are tons of horses on the market right now. It's a buyer's market not a seller's, which is unfortunate for you.

I do wish you luck, but if you think he's worth some ridiculous amount of money and aren't willing to compromise his price for a good home, you may find yourself stuck with him.

I do realize that, as I've sold many horses before, but if there's someone out there who's willing to pay for him, and I can get what I need out of him, what's the harm in me trying? Of course I realize that if push comes to shove, he'll go for a lot less. But would you be willing to just "give away" one of your most loved horses? I don't mean to be rude, or start an argument or anything like that at all, but please, if you're not willing to help me or offer me the names of anyone who can, just trust that I have some clue of what I'm doing.
