I'm sorry, when you said "she's just not working out" I assumed that she was semi-new, as I generally hear that expression about new things.

I would say that the fact that she isn't working out is a "problem", or moodiness is a "problem", not implying that you yourself have problems, but that over all there is a problem, as otherwise you would not think about selling her, I just thought that it would be best to evaluate your situation rather than perpetuate it, if you hadn't already. I was merely offering you things to consider.

Out of a potential buyer I would be looking for someone who is the best fit, don't try and sugarcoat things for a sale (many people do) if you after the best home for you horse. If you are very particular about matching her up well offer a short trial period.

As for looking for another horse, all the questions in world cannot give you as much information as hands on experience. Try the potential horse over show jumps, and if possible ride it a few times, one of the times try and catch it, tack it up etc all on your own. If possible see it at a show, or out of its comfort zone.

Best of luck.

Hey it's okay generally she is not that new and I have tried and tried again with her and I just don't think she is the horse for me and doesn't really suit what I want to do today I am going hunting on her and I think that would be the perfect place for her not the showjumping ring she likes hunting so much better so we will see how it goes.

We will most deffinately let people trial her before they think about buying her it's only fair, and I will be asking can I have a trial period of any horse I am looking to buy.

Thank you all for your help

Hey anyone who has read this thread. Well today I took Phoebe out hunting and she loved it and so did I so Dad joined me up to the Oriel Harriers hunt group. So until february we are keeping Phoebe because she is so good out hunting and we both love it so I am keeping her throughout the hunting season and when the hunter trials start we will do some of them and use them as a way of kind of advertising her because after the hunter trials is when the big shows in jumping come up so then we will hopefully have a new horse. We are hoping to sell her to a home that will have the time for her to work on her or else a family that will hunt her in the winter time
