What?? 30 days?? that is an absolutely ridiculous thing to guarentee. There is a host of potentially bad things that could happen to an unbroke horse with a new rider in 30 days. Agreed, if they want a sound horse they need to get a prepurchase and see what's going on inside. The most generous thing I might consider doing is a one week "lease" with a hefty lease fee that could be deducted from the total purchase price at the end of the week if they decide to keep her. And I would only consider it if I knew the trainer/owner and trusted them whole heartedly. That is NOT a typical thing to ask of a seller. Since you have other people interested I'd tell them no.

Wow, strong response force on this one. Yep, I told her I can't do the guarantee, she of course, didn't even reply to say she didn't want the horse. I called everyone else, someone else came today and picked her up (signed an "As Is" bill of sale and didn't even get a PPE). The first girl did end up replying and said she'd talk it over with her fiance... Horse is gone, drama over, I notified everyone that I had been in contact with and deleted ads.

Good!! Sounds like everything worked out! A 30 day trial is a little unreasonable. There are so many crazies out there I don't trust many people to care for my sale horses and even in the best care accidents happen. Congrats on selling your horse!

Good! I'm glad that she went to someone else...

With as many people as you said interested in your mare, there is no need to put up with finicky buyers, who could end up being more trouble than they are worth.
