I have a women planning to come look at my mare. I want to be sure that she's going to the right home. She needs some work with a gentle hand, and the lady says that she does her own training. Are there any specific questions I should ask her?
When I had to sell my first horse years ago, the first thing I asked was about where and how (inside, outside, or a combination) he would be kept. I talked to several people who wanted him, taking their names and phone numbers and started doing a little background work of my own. Kind of seeking out personal references from the horse people that I knew. When I finally chose the peson that I felt comfortable with, I called the guy and asked if I would be able to visit every so often (it broke my heart to have to sell him) . When he said anytime I wanted, I said "sold".
