What an adorable little man! Regarding your advertisement, as a dressage rider, movement is really important to me. I usually skip right by the ads that don't have a video. If you can attach a youtube link to your ad, you might get a lot more lookers. Good luck, I bet you don't have any trouble at all selling him.

Don't forget to add whether he is good to float/truck. I live in auckland too and have to say its a pretty slow market right now given the time of year, I have had my gelding listed for 3 months and kept dropping his price until I finally pulled his ad because he was so under-priced. Hopefully the fact that he is a full size pony will work in his favour as they tend to sell quickly. Good luck, he looks lovely!

I really like videos too, I wish more sellers would include them. I only looked at one horse without a video out of a dozen or so horses that I looked at (luckily I did -- she was the one)

Although... If you can't sell him I *guess* you could ship him over to the states and I would take him off your hands *wink*

I would do a strait on of his legs from the front and one from the back of his bum. People want to see if he is strait and even.

I would never give a trial - to many things can go wrong, horse or rider can get get hurt, broken bones, horse could get 'stolen.' Way to much liability there for me! If a trial is a deal breaker, have them put down a deposit and they can come try him a few times under your supervision.

Make sure you print off a 'Bill of Sale' and make the new owner sign it.
