Or you could just as "can I buy any tack with the horse for an extra fee?" and if they say you can have something for free, jump on it. When I sold my mini mare I sold her custom fitted harness with her for an extra fee, and when I sold my TB I decided to pretty much give away everything else I had that they wanted including buckets, fly spray, the bale of hay I had left, a bag of feed and supplements, half a bottle of probios, two halters, a lead, and an O ring snaffle bit. I didn't charge them any extra money for any of that because I'm getting out for horses for a while and had no need for it. I hadn't PLANNED on giving them the rope halter and lead but I left them on her so they went with her, and I didn't have the heart to say I wanted it back.
IMO its a bit forward to ask for free things, but if its offered- snap it up. Come prepared with your own halter and lead though.
