Big Bucks for Selling Horses

Selling horses means big bucks in many parts of the world. There are people who are in the business of acquiring and selling horses. If you want to sell a horse there are some things that are good to know about the venture. Selling horses is not a sure thing. It is usually feast or famine. There are few horse sellers who enjoy steady sales. Most horse sellers will have side jobs in addition to their horse selling business.

However, if you just want to sell a horse your best bet is the classifieds. You can do this either in print publications or online. It is somewhat easier to sell a horse online because you reach a much broader market. When you sell a horse online there certain things to consider. For instance, when you make the sale and the buyer is in Rhode Island, but you are in New Mexico, how will the horse get to its new owner? Will the owner be responsible for transporting the horse? Will you pay all or part of transporting the animal? If the buyer did not travel to you to see the horse in person, do you offer some sort of guarantee if he does not like it when he gets it, or if he feels it is not as described? If so, who pays for the return? These do not necessarily need to be problems, but you do need to consider them if you are going to be selling horses to buyers who are not nearby.

When you decide to sell a horse, whether it is print or online, give as much information as possible. If you sell a horse online, make sure you include your location in the ad, preferably in the headline. This is a great service to your buyers who may only want to buy in a particular region. You should sell a horse that is sound unless you are up front about any defects. Any attempt to sell an animal that is unsound without giving full disclosure can quickly destroy your reputation as a horse seller. Horse people stick together and if one of them gets wind of a horse sellerís unethical behavior, you can bet that many, many of his horse people friends will know soon! If you sell a horse online, be as honest about the animal as possible, in your communications with the potential buyer. You do not want to sell an animal, have it transported several hundred miles only to have the buyer reject it because there was something that you did not tell him. It is bad for your reputation, but, more importantly, it is very stressful to the animal. And you want to avoid that at all costs.
