about 5 months ago, i had a project pony that i worked with for about 6 months. there was a immediate bond and i was one of the only ones able to ride her. i didn’t own her, i just rode her for my trainer. she eventually sold to a little girl who wasn’t the best fit. she moved 5 hours away so i’m never going to see her again. according to her owners (who don’t know much about horses) she has frequent bucking fits and they want to sell her asap. they bought her for 3200, and want to sell her for 3200. i straight up told her she’s not going to get nearly that much because she’s barely been a walk trot pony. i’ve been talking to the owner and she said she would sell her to me for 2000. i need help convincing my parents or thinking of plans to buy her. ANY advice would be amazing. she is my dream pony and i’m scared that her owners are going to sell her to another rider who doesn’t know SQUAT, which then sells her to a auction, which then she goes to a kill auction. it’s worst case scenario, but i don’t think that’s fair to her. she’s an amazing pony and it’s my dream to see her again and work with her. so again, any advice/ideas on how to get my parents to help me buy her? i’m horrible at math so here’s some major cost factors:
shots: $160 (i think?)
i have all my own tack. she is barefoot, i have another horse who is pretty spoiled so i pretty much have 2 of everything ðŸ˜‚ (halters, brushes, sprays, things like that.) again, any advice is worthy. thank you so much!
