    selling french horse

    I am looking for a US contact for I guess my horse could be attractive in your country. He has very good breeding (Narcos II x Lieu de Rampan) and is already experienced and successful in hunter. Unfortunaterly this discipline in not popular at all in France. Le Kid is a very handsome 9 years old very healthy gelding with a compact conformation, amazing jump style and 3 very good paces. He is currently ridden by me (ie photos) and a professionnal: he could be suitable for a young rider for he is very lovely tempered and has very good manners.

    If you know some client who could be interested in that type of horse, his price is 35 000 USD (including travel by plane) which means if you think you could sell him better, the rest would be yours.

    Nice horse! I don't think he'd be successful as a hunter in America as he doesn't really have the correct movement or way of going that the hunter judges are going for. He looks like a spectacular jumper though and $35,000 for a quiet jumper is quite a deal. However, if you're serious about selling him I'd remove the pictures on your site of him rearing and refusing the fences. :)

    Yes your right!!! I don't want to lie about him but he don't refuing the fences often, it's very "rare" (how did you say in english???)lol

    Do you know someone who will be interess by him?
    Can you help me to sell him ????

    The price is sort of high and right now the horse market in canada and the you.s is really bad.....with shipping you'd also be lossing the money on him...might be wise just to sell in france? Doesn't nonte or dejon have nice stables?

    While the market in the US/Canada is generally bad, I'd say the market for show horses is NOT. Especially the good ones. In fact, I've noticed no change in the number of people buying or selling nor prices.

    I don't have any students right now looking for a jumper. I think the biggest problem is going to be buying from France! For a $35,000 horse people expect to ride it several times, get a pre-purchase exam done by their own vet, and even take it out on trial for a week or two. Finding someone to go all the way to France just to try out a horse that may or may not work is going to be difficult!
