Selling horse to a trekking company
I am in the process of selling my 2 horses and have had a number of enquiries on our cheaper, very quiet horse. One of them has been from a trekking company out of town and I initially thought 'no way' as soon as I read the email.
My main issue is that they usually have a lot of horses and are likely to miss out on that one on one care that they would receive in a home where there are only a couple of horses.
I voiced this concern in response and the lady emailed me back, explaining the daily care the horses receive - they have a regular trimmer out every 1-2 weeks and all horses are brought in daily to be checked over. The horses get ridden 4-5 days a week and he would be in the beginners treks which is usually at a walk only. They also have a dentist and chiro who are out whenever any horses need them.
I like the sound of it all but can't help feeling slightly sad that he wouldn't be someones main focus. Anyone else sold to a trekking company and felt happy where the horse ended up? (Of course asking this knowing all trekking places operate differently and can vary greatly!)
